“You do it big time!”
Aretha`s salute to Princeton Entertainment`s 32 years of creating and touring groundbreaking concert productions was greatly appreciated. Princeton’s producing signature is the creation of innovative productions often combining orchestras and the talents of popular recording artists and entertainment franchises with new elements. Princeton’s tours appeal to cross-generational audiences and reach five continents. Over our history, our clients, touring productions, and co-producers have included Andrea Bocelli, Justin Timberlake, Cher, Aretha, James Taylor, Harry Belafonte, Idina Menzel, Joan Rivers, Linda Ronstadt, Liza Minnelli, Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer, John Williams, Charlotte Church, Denyce Graves, Raul Esparza, Sir James Galway, Marvin Hamlisch andJohn Lithgow to name but a few. We have produced the major orchestras of Detroit, Baltimore, Vancouver, San Diego, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, and New York, as well as the Royal Philharmonic, the National Symphony Orchestra, and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s.
In 2020, Princeton Entertainment expanded to become Princeton Entertainment Group (PEG), a new partnership between Judson Green, former President of Disney Theme Parks, Joyce Green, an arts patron and philanthropist, Mark McCoy, a former University President, and Ed Kasses, Founder of Princeton Entertainment. Princeton Entertainment Group expands our ability to create new touring productions for the global market and new streaming and broadcast opportunities based on world class entertainment and lifestyle media franchises. That expansion brings Laura Savini, producer and on-air personality for PBS and other media, to lead our TV and streaming division. Laura also shares her music business, publishing, branding and touring experience with the company. Chase Fullen manages our Princeton office.

We are often the first to recognize a new superstar, and with that vision, produced Andrea Bocelli’s first concert in the United States and first five tours of North and South America, selling out arenas and amphitheaters across continents. Bocelli’s performances for Princeton rank among Pollstar Magazine’s highest grossing concert tours in history.
Princeton produced Aretha Franklin’s performance at the 44th Inauguration of President Barack Obama and Tony Award winner Idina Menzel’s PBS Special Barefoot at the Symphony and her subsequent North American concert tour. We also served as Executive Producer for all concert events affiliated with the dedication of the National Memorial honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in Washington, DC, featuring Stevie Wonder.
