The Pasadena Playhouse has announced that Danny Feldman will be the theatre’s new executive/artistic director. Feldman will work closely with outgoing leader Sheldon Epps, who previously announced his retirement and will become the Playhouse’s artistic director emeritus.
Feldman joins the California theatre from his current position as executive director at Labyrinth Theater Company in New York, where he has been since 2010 and was behind its first Broadway production, The Motherf**ker With the Hat.
Epps has served as the Playhouse’s artistic director for 20 years and will continue to work closely with the theatre’s new leader during the transitional phase.
“I warmly welcome Danny to The Playhouse,” said Epps in a press statement. “I am sure that his energy, enthusiasm and passion for our art form will be of great value to our theatre and to our community. I look forward to working with him, and to our collaboration over the course of the transition.”
“We are very excited to have Danny join us,” added Playhouse board chairman David DiCristofaro. “He brings a strong commitment to artistic excellence, with an impressive producing background coupled with extensive theatre management experience. Danny embodies the mission and values of our Playhouse - artists at the center of the theater, and a commitment to the community which we serve.”
