This is underpinned by a degree in education with a minor in theatre arts and my varied international experience having lived in three countries and speaking two languages.
I founded the English Theater e.V. (registered charity) in Frankfurt, Germany. It is one of the few English Speaking Theatres in continental Europe and has the largest seating capacity (300) of them all. I negotiated the theatre’s present location and planned its construction with a team of architects – it is the only theatre housed in a bank worldwide.
As the Artistic Director I would choose the plays, the directors and with a creative team put an acting ensemble together for each production. I also oversaw all the marketing activities to ensure regular media and press coverage for the productions and the theatre. During my tenure the theatre produced eighty plays and musicals and employed hundreds of British actors, most of who were based in London. One musical was “Kat and the Kings” which I produced on Broadway, at the Cort Theatre, together with such well-known American producers as Richard Frankel Productions and Harriet Leve.
My contributions to Frankfurt’s international cultural scene have been recognised through numerous awards, including:
· The Cross of the Order of Merit (comparable to a CBE) from the German Government 2001
· Media Prize of the Steuben Schurz Society” 2000
· Harlekin Prize of the Frankfurter Volksbuehne 1999
· Cultural Prize of the State of Hessen 1998
