Amanda Feldman has joined Page 73 as the company's new managing director. A theatre producer, manager, and advocate, Feldman began her tenure at Page 73 earlier this month.
Feldman was previously the general manager of the Lark Play Development Center for five years. She has produced with En Garde Arts, The Foundry Theatre, The Play Company, and The Playwrights Realm, and was the founding managing director of CollaborationTown, a Theatre Company, Inc., where she produced seven of the company's world premieres.
Throughout her career, Feldman has held leadership roles for The Community Dish, The League of Independent Theatres, and the NY Innovative Theatre Foundation. She sits on the Boards of History Matters/Back to the Future, an organization dedicated to the study and production of women’s plays of the past, and is a Women’s Project Theatre Producers Lab Alum.
“I have always been inspired by the way that Page 73 centers and empowers playwrights and by the beautiful and impactful productions that it produces,” said Feldman. “It is a privilege to join the staff in our 20th Anniversary season and continue the work of growing and strengthening the organization so we can continue to support and bolster the careers of tomorrow's award-winning dramatists.”
“Amanda brings a wealth of experience with playwrights and producing that we are already benefiting from as we're about to open our fall premiere," said Producing Artistic Director Michael Walkup. "Our staff is larger than ever, we're growing our capacity to pursue our mission, and Amanda is an instrumental new partner in leading that continued growth.”
Page 73's upcoming production of Mia Chung's Catch As Catch Can will begin performances October 22 at the New Ohio Theatre with direction by Ken Rus Schmoll. In Chung's new play, six characters are brought to life by three actors playing across gender and generation. For more information and tickets, visit Page73.org.
