PRODUCING ARTISTIC DIRECTOR
Theater Wit 2004-current
Founded in 2004, Theater Wit is a cultural hub of the Chicago Theater landscape, specializing in contemporary works of comedy, intellect and heart. Under a unique, playwright-centric second production process, Theater Wit has become a nationally-recognized producer of new work by writers like Anne Washburn, Will Eno, Itamar Moses, Joshua Harmon and Madeleine George.
Under my leadership, Theater Wit has grown from a small $40K annual budget to a leader in the Chicago landscape with an annual budget of $1M. In 2007, I supervised and designed a new home for Theater Wit, a 3-theater facility that hosts both our own award-winning work and gives a home to a number of Chicago's best neighborhood theaters with over 600 performances/year from 40+ companies in a typical season.
