Harold Wolpert Named Executive Director of Signature Theatre
Wolpert has previously served in leadership roles with Roundabout Theater Company, Manhattan Theatre Club, and the Alley Theatre.
Signature Theatre announced Harold Wolpert as executive director of the Tony Award-winning company starting April 2. He will serve alongside artistic director Paige Evans.
"For nearly 30 years I have watched with admiration as Signature has grown and flourished, becoming one of this city's essential cultural institutions," Wolpert said in a statement. "Providing an immersive exploration into multiple writers' bodies of work in the thrillingly designed Pershing Square Signature Center, offering tens of thousands of subsidized tickets each season — no one is doing what Signature is doing. I am beyond excited to work with my longtime friend Paige Evans and the Board and staff in leading Signature into its exciting next chapter."
Wolpert has had three decades of experience in arts administration at theater companies such as Roundabout Theatre Company, Manhattan Theatre Club, and Houston's Alley Theatre. He was recently honored with the Edith Oliver Service to Off-Broadway Award by the Lucille Lortel Awards.
