I completely agree that an artist that is so personally involved in the work is likely not the best person to run the business of the production. This does not mean though that he should not commit to it financially. The risk associated with raising money, or even self financing gives a perspective that may actually be useful, and uncompromising. if someone were to self produce a work, they for sure need a top quality general manager. A writer/ director can not handle this and the work on stage.

Matthew,

I couldnt agree more about your point in terms of financials. Putting some of your own money in always adds a stronger sense of ownership. This is a great point and I have blogged about it in the past. As always, thanks for your comments and insights!
