“From Collins Street to Broadway”
Friday 4th October 2013
12:30 pm for 12:40 pm
Kelvin Club in Melbourne Place
Jonathan Feder, Partner at K&L Gates solicitors, will discuss how a successful IT lawyer can also be a producer of major successful musicals in New York, London, Australia and New Zealand. He will also discuss in brief the nature of his work in both these areas. One of the latest musical productions in which Jonathan has been involved is the phenomenal musical hit The Book of Mormon which won 9 Tony Awards for the Broadway production including the award for Best Musical. (The Tony Awards are the theatre world’s equivalent of the Oscars.) Jonathan will also be happy to answer any questions you may have in relation to intellectual property, trademarks and copy rights and of course the current state of musical theatre.
