Peter Zeisler

"This truly marks the end of an era for us here at TCG and represents the loss of a seminal figure for our field," Ben Cameron, executive director of Theatre Communications Group, told Playbill.com. "TCG will always bear the imprint of Peter’s personality: indeed, the programs that are now critical for the field—the book program, the magazine, the fiscal research and surveys, the American Arts Alliance, and more—were founded under Peter’s remarkable leadership. Even more, he was a man of uncompromising conscience—one who would speak openly and passionately about freedom of expression, diversity and artistic conscience from the viewpoint of one who had been blackballed in the industry, who had faced disciplinary action for daring to salute an officer of color on a Southern military base—in short, a man with a wealth of experiences. He was a mentor to many leaders and theatres who literally would not have been in the field today without him. He will be deeply, deeply missed."
