Eich is a producer, manager, teacher, and director with over 30 years experience in both the commercial and not-for-profit professional theater. During his time at the Playhouse, he helped to implement a fiscal reorganization of the theater that has brought it to a place of economic stability.
In a statement, Eich remarks, "I take great pride in knowing that the complicated and courageous journey this organization embarked upon in the last couple of years was unequivocally successful. I will leave this organization stronger than it has been in a long time, with no debt, and a bright and extraordinary future ahead."
A national search for a new Executive Director for The Pasadena Playhouse will begin shortly.
