Upstream Theater Appoints Peter Mayer as Managing Director
By: Upstream Theater
Mr. Mayer will work closely with Artistic Director Philip Boehm as the company—now entering its fourteenth season—continues to bring a world of theater to St. Louis with plays that "move you, and move you to think."
A longtime member of Actors' Equity, Mr. Mayer also brings a wealth of experience in business and law to the company. Board chair Mary Wertsch is excited by the development:
For his part, Mr. Mayer is equally pleased to join what he calls "a vibrant, exciting theater characterized by an artistic vision and an intellectual dimension that are quite rare. It will be an honor to work alongside Philip."
Since 2005, Upstream Theater has produced over two dozen US or world premieres by leading playwrights from nearly twenty countries. With this appointment the company looks forward to strengthening their organizational capacity, expanding their outreach, and extending their influence beyond St. Louis, both by developing new projects and by partnering with other institutions in the region. https://upstreamtheater.org
