Pearson to Stage and Film

Former agent is new executive director

Thomas Pearson, who spent the last seven years as a theatrical lit agent at ICM, has jumped to a management position, signing on as the exec director at New York Stage and Film.

Prior to his stint at the tenpercentery, Pearson had been general manager at Off Brodway’s New York Theater Workshop. At ICM, he repped clients including scribes Tarell Alvin McCraney, Stephen Belber, Jose Rivera and Charles L. Mee, as well as composer Michael Friedman.

He joins a.d. Johanna Pfaelzer and producing director Mark Linn-Baker, Max Mayer and Leslie Urdang at New York Stage and Film, the nonprofit that develops new work for both screen and stage. The org is probably best known for its annual Powerhouse session of developing work at Vassar College, which has hosted past Rialto alums including “Sideman,” “Doubt” and this season’s revised revival of “On a Clear Day You Can See Forever.”

Pearson begins his new gig immediately. The company anticipates announcing the upcoming Powerhouse season soon.
