CAA Tell-All Book Event With Ron Meyer and Michael Ovitz Moved to Bigger Venue
Demand for tickets for the Sept. 7 conversation between CAA founders Michael Ovitz and Ron Meyer and James Andrew Miller, the author of Powerhouse, a history of the agency, has been so strong it has been moved to a bigger venue. The confab will now take place at the Directors Guild Theatre at 7920 Sunset Blvd. The additional seats will be VIP-level reserved seating in the front rows. Prices are $60 and can be bought here.
Powerhouse, which publishes Aug. 9, promises to be the first truly inside look at CAA, the talent agency that dominated Hollywood in the 1980s and 1990s when Ovitz and Meyer were still there. (Ovitz and Meyer both left in 1995; Meyer for Universal, Ovitz for Disney). An exclusive excerpt from the book can be found here.
Miller previously wrote the best-selling oral histories These Guys Have All the Fun: Inside the World of ESPN and Live From New York: The Complete, Uncensored History of Saturday Night Live as Told by Its Stars, Writers, and Guests.ass," but the town's rivals and players (including Michael Ovitz) reveal the truth is far more complex in James Andrew Miller's new book 'Powerhouse: The Untold Story of Hollywood's Creative Artists Agency.'"]
