Morello comes to the Public following an eight-year tenure as the senior vice president of external affairs at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the largest encyclopedic art museum in the Western United States. There, she oversaw all fundraising, communications and earned revenue programs and doubled the museum's attendance.
"It will be a real honor to serve artistic director Oskar Eustis and executive director Patrick Willingham – the people who brought Hamilton and Fun Home to life, and in doing so have captured everyone's attention," said Morello in a press statement. "Their commitment to access for the widest audience and to nurturing artists is unparalleled. The Board, and the incredibly talented staff and artists they support, continue founder Joe Papp's impressive legacy of free Shakespeare in the Park while developing new, provocative theater. From Joe's Pub to Under the Radar, from Public Works to the Mobile Shakespeare Unit, from Public Forum to the Emerging Writer Group, there are so many important voices in their venues, on their stages, and in their audiences. I couldn't be more thrilled to be part of The Public Theater's future."
"I am thrilled to have Terry join our team at The Public during this exciting time where we are celebrating Oskar Eustis’ 10th anniversary and the extraordinary success of Fun Home and Hamilton," added executive director Willingham. "As we prepare for the next decade and beyond, I am confident that Terry’s incredible leadership that she demonstrated so skillfully at LACMA will be a huge asset to The Public as we continue to grow and expand our programming, facilities, audiences and global presence."
