Theatre West welcomes its new Managing Director, Eric W. Reid.
Reid has been an actor, director, playwright, and theater producer for over 20 years. He was the founder and Executive Director of Theater MadCap, whose mission was to cultivate original works by minority artists, and from 2007 to 2017 his theater company produced over 50 original plays by women and minority writers in the San Francisco Bay Area. He is now the Managing Director at Theatre West in Los Angeles along with being the Audience Services Coordinator at The Greenway Court Theater. His dedication and commitment to supporting local theater and minority artists became his calling card, and he’s most proud of creating and curating performance spaces for Black and brown voices to be heard.
