Public Theater shuffles staff

Off Broadway venue brings in new blood

Off Broadway’s Public Theater has made a string of staffing changes, with former associate producer Mandy Hackett being upped to associate a.d. and Jenny Gersten, a vet of Naked Angels and the Williamstown Theater Fest, coming onboard as associate producer.

Another associate producer, Peter DuBois (and current helmer of the LAByrinth Theater Company’s “A View from 151st Street”) has been appointed resident director, while longtime casting director Heidi Griffiths has been named co-head of the casting department with Jordan Thaler.

Gersten, who has worked in the legit nonprofit world for more than a decade, isn’t the first member of her family to be an associate producer at the Public. Her father, Bernard Gersten, filled that role from 1960 through 1978, and is now exec director at Lincoln Center Theater.
