As part of a return visit to the Florida Southern campus, Tony Award-winning producer Dr. Jeffrey Grove '86 received a warm welcome from students and faculty from the Department of Theatre and Dance on Jan. 23, 2019. The successful Tampa-area osteopathic physician shared stories of his recent and prospective ventures involving major New York stage productions, a career path that surprised him just as much as anyone else. To much laughter, Dr. Grove told the group, "I understand that I'm more of a doctor than a Broadway producer."
What is the hardest part of being a Broadway producer? "The limited number of Broadway theaters," Dr. Grove explained. "When will a theater open up? That's the real challenge now ... the hardest part!"
