Photo Diary: What’s it like working for Glenn during Man in the Moon?

Photos and story by Paige Perry

The Beck family takes their seats to watch the show

One of the perks to working at TheBlaze is that everyone does a little bit of everything. I was even told that when I was interviewed for the job, and they weren’t kidding. I produce for Glenn’s TV program but one of my other passions is photography. Events like Man in the Moon give me a chance to utilize both skills to document Glenn, the crew, and the audience.

Ben and Glenn discuss the production

Since this week has started, there has been a constant buzz of excitement and awe of how this has all come together. You can see it in Glenn’s face. Capturing the events of this week makes it clear that Glenn has had this on his mind for a while. This story is one that travels fast but ends openly for you to finish. To bring it to life, Glenn and Ben McPherson, the director of the show, put in an incredible amount of work. Not to mention, of course, all of the crew at ADL.

Glenn talks to the dance group working on the show

Last night we watched the first dress rehearsal, and before it began Glenn and Ben sat on the lawn going over last minute details. Glenn was so excited to get started. And once I got to see the show, I knew why. Everything fell into place and I definitely shed a tear or two. Guys, this show is everything anyone could ever want in a performance, and you leave feeling like you can conquer the world…well maybe after a good night’s sleep first.

Working on the set

It’s amazing to see how this has come full circle since the mentions of Man in the Moon first began. My first day working at TheBlaze was the weekend after Restoring Love, making Man in the Moon my first “Glenn event”. Glenn talks about it with so much fervor that it just rubs off onto other people, in the best possible way. I may not have a good idea of where Glenn and this company have been, but I now know where we are going. And folks, it’s going to get real good.

I’ll see you all Saturday on the moon!

    The dancers and the choreographer are from Odyssey Dance Company out of Utah.  I know many of them personally and have worked under that choreographer.  I am disappointed to see that the Man in the Moon production team chose these people to represent them in this project.  I am also a performer and I chose to leave the New York musical theater scene because of the moral disintegration of most of live entertainment.  I want to be a part of it, but I can’t support this perpetual decline of our culture and morality.  Some of these dancers have criticized me personally for my beliefs for a moral culture and listening to Glenn Beck.  Yet they are in this production when there are many who share Glenn’s vision to restore the culture?  Why?  These people, that again I have personally worked with, are a part of and promote the very culture Glenn wants to combat.  If Glenn can quit McDonald’s over their support of Palestine, I would think his production team needs to be more careful of who they hire.  Again, Glenn….there are so many that want to be a part of what you are doing entertainment wise and I urge you to more carefully screen those who a part of it, or at least make your staff aware of it.  I was extremely disappointed to see them in your cast.  Extremely disappointed.

    Think again… Is it possible that Glenn is “working his magic” on them??? You know, Lead by Example! By Glenn including them in this production he may very well (inadvertantly?) change them into “converts” and quite possibly show them how to be better humanbeings…… Maybe next time you work with them they won’t be such a**holes….. hmmm, just a thought…., Teach a man how to fish (as it goes in the Bible)

    I thought someone might reply that way and I completely understand your line of thought. However, I must kindly disagree. For example, if The Blaze were to hire a television host to help the vision of The Blaze would you choose Andrew Wilkow or Juan Williams? You could make the case that Juan might “change his thinking” by being a part of the network, but why leave someone like Wilkow out when he is just as talented and share’s the same vision as The Blaze. Again, I’m a performer and you have NO IDEA (or maybe you do if you are one) how difficult it is to find just one job that will not require you to compromise your values. Glenn’s staff should be actively searching for those people and give them a chance to use their talents, rather than borrow from the average cultural ilk. Help give voice to those who want to help change the culture. We have been waiting a long time to be used.
