Jim Russek created advertising and built memorable entertainment brands that have played to generations of audiences. He helped launch A Chorus Line on Broadway; led the ad campaign for Francis Ford Coppola's national tour of Napoleon; launched the Big Apple Circus at Lincoln Center and a phenomenon called Stomp, and created decades of award-winning work for Lincoln Center Theater.
Away from work Jim is part news junkie and part avid baseball fan. He conceived and produced the critically acclaimed musical revues Bush Wars and Me The People:The Trump America Musical. He also partnered with Bill "Spaceman" Lee to create a barnstorming team of former Boston Red Sox players, The New England Grey Sox.
In 2014 Jim launched BwayTunes.com, a content rich music download store he
conceived for musical theater fans but, alas, streaming ended that! He produces the weekly podcast READ650 and continues to freelance as a marketing and creative consultant – offering strategic planning, copywriting, art direction and website design.
