Matt Ross Public Relations, a new publicity firm focusing on theatre productions and entities in New York and beyond, will open its doors for business Jan. 6.
The agency will consist of founder Matt Ross and associate Nicole Capatasto, both formerly of The Hartman Group.
Clients will include Murder For Two; Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812; the upcoming Broadway revival of On The Town; and Maxolev Productions (Howard & Janet Kagan). Additional projects will be announced shortly.
Matt Ross has been a press agent since 2005, most recently as part of The Hartman Group and prior to that at Boneau/Bryan-Brown and Keith Sherman & Associates. He has represented more than 30 Broadway and Off-Broadway productions.
Nicole Capatasto began working in theatre publicity after joining The Hartman Group in 2009.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
