Managing Director – Everyman Theatre

Everyman Theatre

Baltimore, Maryland

Approximate Salary: Not Specified

Job Category: Executive Director / CEO, Full Time

Date Posted: September 12, 2019

Everyman Theatre will celebrate its 30th year next season. It has been at its current location in Baltimore’s Bromo Arts District since 2013. Everyman remains dedicated to engaging the audience through a shared experience between actor and audience seeking connection and emotional truth in performance. Its Core Values of Excellence, People Matter and Community guide its artistry and its development as an organization. As expressed in its mission, “Everyman Theatre provides transformative experiences through professional theatre that is welcoming, relevant, and affordable to everyone, featuring a Resident Company of actors.” The resident company of actors, always central to the work onstage, has more recently embraced offstage work as well, working in development, marketing, education, and season planning.

Everyman Theatre was founded by Vincent (Vinny) Lancisi in 1990. Its first four years saw a vagabond existence before landing, in the 1994-95 season, at what would be its home for 18 years. In 2013, Everyman moved to its beautiful new facility on Fayette Street. Everyman’s 2019-20 season, its 29th, will be its largest to date. With eight fully produced plays and numerous other activities, Everyman now produces new work in half of its season, whether world premieres or second or third productions. The theater has grown steadily since it moved in 2013. With over 5,000 subscribers and an average annual total of 45,000 individual tickets, Everyman is one of Baltimore’s two Equity theaters. Each show runs between four and five weeks. All sets are built by the Everyman staff in an onsite scene shop.

Each season is built around Everyman’s resident company of artists. The relationships formed among the company, and between that company and the audiences, is what continues to distinguish Everyman. In a city like Baltimore, with nearly a 75% non-white population, Everyman’s diverse company and the diverse stories it presents are a fitting complement to each other. Baltimore faces various challenges, (although not nearly so many as one national leader would suggest), nevertheless Everyman is well-positioned and committed to be a catalyst for positive change. Everyman passionately embraces telling diverse stories that speak to the people of Baltimore and reflect their experiences. One staff member said, “if you believe theater can help make positive change in a city, Baltimore is a perfect canvas.”

Baltimore, Maryland, a city of 620,000 people, has a thriving arts scene including major regional museums (Baltimore Museum of Art, the Walters Art Museum and the American Visionary Arts Museum) a vibrant and diverse music scene, and a thriving small theatre scene. While a bit too big to be considered a college town, it does boast several major universities particularly Johns Hopkins University and Medical School, University of Maryland Medical School, Maryland Institute College or Art, Morgan State University, and several others. Baltimore is a thriving tourist and convention town, with the Inner Harbor, the National Aquarium, and its numerous museums serving as draws.

Vinny directs a show or two each season. Vinny founded Everyman shortly after completing graduate school and has remained ever since.

Rented artist housing is within walking distance.
