Reiner succeeds Jessica R. Jenen, who departed CSC in the fall.

Reiner comes to CSC after a tenure as executive director of Tectonic Theater Project, where he produced the world premiere of The Laramie Project: Ten Years Later in 150 theatres on a single night, and oversaw the Tony-nominated Broadway production of 33 Variations.

"We are thrilled to have Greg joining CSC, he brings with him a keen mind, deep passion, boundless resourcefulness and an impressive inventiveness; in short: just the qualities we need as we venture into this phase of CSC's institutional growth," said Kulick in a statement. "Greg brings to this position an outstanding twelve-year record of institutional growth," said Board Chair Lynn F. Angelson. "Our board and our staff look forward to a robust future at CSC with Greg joining our leadership team."

"Classic Stage Company is one of the most important theaters producing classical work in the United States, and I am excited to be a part of the next stage of their growth. I look forward to working with Brian and the entire CSC team as we find new ways to make the company’s world class work accessible to audiences of all ages and economic ability, as well as build our education programs into a transformative change agent in young people’s lives across the country, introducing them to the importance of these plays and their relevance to their own lives," added Reiner.

Prior to Tectonic, Reiner was managing director of The Actors’ Gang and managing director of Shakespeare Festival/LA. He was recently chosen as a participant in National Arts Strategies’ Chief Executive Program, a two-year initiative designed to unleash the collective power of 100 top executive leaders in the cultural sector. Classic Stage Company is committed to re-imagining the classical repertory for a contemporary American audience. For more information visit
