Creative Artists Agency has formed a partnership with the Joyce Ketay Agency in New York, concentrating on representation of the Gotham theater community.
Under the partnership, CAA will offer clients the opportunity to work with the Ketay Agency, which represents writers, directors, composers, choreographers and designers. In addition, clients of Ketay will have access to CAA for motion picture, television and music representation through its Beverly Hills headquarters.
Both agencies have worked together before, and even share some clients, including playwrights David Rabe and Tony Kushner. But the partnership is nonexclusive, and participation will be based on a per-client basis.
“This partnership is very important to CAA, not only because it gives us the opportunity to take our presence in the New York theater community to a new level, but also because it allows us to offer clients superior New York-based theater coverage,” CAA President Richard Lovett said in a statement.
The partnership does not establish a CAA office in New York, but it does expand its presence in legitimate theater.
Said Ketay: “We’ve worked closely with CAA on many successful projects. It’s always been a good relationship and this is a great way for us to expand on that.”
