Rebecca Ende Lichtenberg will join Studio Theatre in Washington, D.C., as the company's new managing director beginning in December. She joins the theatre, now in its 40th anniversary season, after having served seven years as the managing director at nearby Theater J.
“We searched all over the country and found someone two blocks away,” said Artistic Director David Muse in a statement. “Rebecca impressed us all with her resourcefulness, her ability to operate both strategically and operationally, and her smarts. We have some big plans for the future, and I look forward to partnering with her as we bring them to fruition.”
“I have been seeing work at Studio Theatre for nearly two decades and long have admired the company’s ability to innovate and uphold the highest standards of artistic excellence,” said Lichtenberg. “I am honored to partner with visionary Artistic Director David Muse and Studio’s talented senior team in leading this nationally-recognized organization into its next phase. This amazing opportunity gives me the chance to help build on Studio’s legacy of developing new work, to nurture the next generation of artists and arts professionals, and to deepen my connections in the D.C. community.”
Prior to serving as managing director of Theater J, Lichtenberg worked at the theatre as director of marketing and communications. Previously, she worked as director of marketing and communications for Sitar Arts Center. She holds an M.A. in Arts Administration from Columbia University and a Certificate in Budgeting and Finance from Georgetown University.
