Box Office Staff

Members of the box office staff are typically the first contact between a patron and the event they plan to attend, and as such, these individuals are responsible not only for the accurate dissemination of tickets but also with ensuring responsible customer service. 

Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts

The Lincoln Center was built through an unprecedented collaboration of public and private organizations, led by philanthropist John D. Rockefeller, III. In 1956, the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts was incorporated and still exists as a private non-profit organization.

Lyricist

The work of the lyricist is the art of substitution; at least that’s how Sheldon Harnick, the Tony and Grammy award-winning wordsmith of musicals such as Fiddler on the Roof and Fiorello describes it. Songwriting, in the form that a lyricist sets words to a composer’s melodies, is a craft of poetry and wit.

The Public Theater

The Public Theater was founded by Joseph Papp as the Shakespeare Workshop, and currently resides in the former Astor Library in the East Village. The organization presented the world premiere of the musical Hair and is dedicated to producing new works by emerging artists, as well as Shakespeare and other classic material.

Musical Director

The musical director is hired during pre-production by the producer and director, and is responsible only for the vocal and instrumental performance of the cast and accompanying band or orchestra. Few musical directors are as well-known as David Letterman’s longtime collaborator Paul Shaffer, but all are integral to the musical texture of the shows they work on.
