Some exciting new developments are happening at Crow’s Theatre, as the company prepares for the opening of its new state-of-the-art venue at Dundas and Carlaw in 2015.
In less than two years, Crow’s Theatre will open the doors of the first professional theatre venue of its kind east of the Don Valley. As the company expands, it is proud to welcome into the fold Mitchell Cushman, as Crow’s first ever Associate Artistic Director, and Eric Goldstein, as the organization’s new General Manager and Producer.
Mitchell Cushman steps into this new position after working for Crow’s as Associate Producer, as well as the touring director for the company’s collaboration with Porte Parole on SEEDS. Cushman was one of the key artists behind the epic East End experience Passion Play, which Crow’s presented this past June. In the past few years, Cushman has distinguished himself as one of Toronto’s leading emerging directors, in part because of his work with his site-specific company Outside the March. Recent directing credits include the Mirvish remount of Terminus and the Dora-Award-winning Mr. Marmalade. Cushman’s work at Crow’s will focus on creating unique performance experiences within the vibrant neighborhoods of Toronto’s East End, beginning with the recently announced site-specific Solo Festival next spring.
Eric Goldstein has worked as a theatre administrator in Toronto for more than 30 years. He studied arts administration in the UK (City University, Barbican Centre) and worked in London’s West End. He managed the Al Green Theatre at the Miles Nadal JCC and has worked in commercial theatre as a general manager (Patsy, Forever Swing) and company manager for productions both in Toronto and on tour (Les Misérables, Crazy For You, The Overcoat, Jersey Boys and War Horse).
