Roland Scahill goes to Gersh

Agent leaves William Morris

Legit and booking agent Roland Scahill has joined the Gersh Agency’s theater department, which is now led by Gersh agent and partner John Buzzetti.

Scahill jumps to Gersh from William Morris, where he has worked since 1997. He brings with him a client and property list that includes Joe Sears and Jaston Williams of “Tuna Does Vegas”; Jackie Mason; Charles Ross of “One Man Star Wars Trilogy”; and Jordan Allen-Dutton and Eric Weiner, the Emmy-nommed “Robot Chicken” scribes who penned the tuner “Nerds.”

Buzzetti takes the reins of the Gersh theater department following the departure of former head Peter Hagan, who recently moved to Abrams. Gersh theater team also includes agents Joyce Ketay, Carl Mulert, Phyllis Wender and Seth Glewen.

Buzzetti said he hoped the addition of Scahill would bring booking opportunities for the tenpercentery’s clients. He also aims to get Scahill involved in the booking of the agency’s upcoming legit projects, including a brewing tuner version of “Tales of the City.”

Gersh already reps legit creatives including Lin-Manuel Miranda, Thomas Kail and Andy Blankenbuehler (all of “In the Heights”); David Lindsay-Abaire, Jeanine Tesori and Jason Moore (all of “Shrek the Musical”); Moises Kaufman (“33 Variations”); Diane Paulus (“Hair”); Neil LaBute (“Reasons to Be Pretty”); Jack O’Brien (“Impressionism”); and Tony Kushner, the “Angels in America” scribe who will have a fest devoted to his work at the Guthrie Theater in spring.
