How much does a pitch shape your show? Well, for anyone who’s worked on pitch for years and dialed things in to work a specific space will know, it’s just not the same when you take your show and move it to another venue. Sure a lot of it translates from one space to another, but there’s no question that a venue and it’s audience has a huge influence on the shows that are performed there. Harvard Square and Faneuil Hall are two legendary venues in Massachusetts and both shaped the show and performer that Jim became when he arrived in Boston after college. He looked at what was working on the pitch, put his own spin on the formula and refined his show by doing it again and again and again. It’s a familiar recipe for anyone who’s created a show that’s successful on the street and one that requires passion and tenacity. Mike Wood connected with Jim to discuss Jim’s journey and connection to the World of Street Theatre - the veterans he encountered, the pitches he worked and the innovations he developed, some by accident but most being the result of thousands of shows on the pitches in Boston.
