BIO

Nina Lannan has served as executive producer and general manager on more than 50 Broadway productions since she began as the assistant general manager on the musical Cats in 1980. Nina has the distinction of being the first woman to Chair the Broadway League, the 80-year old national trade association for the Broadway theatre industry. In 1977, after graduating from UC Berkeley, Nina's first professional job was in the stage management department at San Francisco Opera during the heyday of Kurt Adler's leadership. Nina moved to New York in 1979 and worked with the BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) Theatre Company for three months, headed by David Jones, before being hired by R. Tyler Gatchell, Jr. and Peter Neufeld at Gatchell and Neufeld, Ltd., the legendary general management office. It was the start of Nina's association with the musical Cats, which she worked on for the 18-year original run on Broadway, that marked the beginning of a cherished mentorship by the Shubert Organization's Bernard B. Jacobs and Philip J. Smith. In 1993 Nina began working with The Really Useful Company as its in-house general manager for all its productions in North and South America and in 1998 she opened her own office, Nina Lannan Associates, before founding Bespoke Theatricals with Maggie Brohn, Amy Jacobs and Devin Keudell in 2011. During her time working on Broadway, Nina has general managed dozens of shows and multiple tours including Cats, Annie Get Your Gun, Starlight Express, Sunset Boulevard, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Mamma Mia!, Dirty Dancing, The Color Purple, Legally Blonde, 9 to 5, and Billy Elliot. In addition to general management, Nina served as the executive producer of School of Rock, Motown: The Musical, and the long-running hit musical Mamma Mia! for its entire Broadway run.
