Jujamcyn shuffles its executive pack

Senior team refocuses after Adamian's departure

Broadway theater owner and producing org Jujamcyn Theaters has restructured its senior team and added an exec.

Redistribution of duties follows the exit of Daniel Adamian, who departed his gig as g.m. and general counsel earlier this year.

Micah Hollingworth, former manager of what is now the Foxwoods Theater, comes aboard as VP of company operations.

Many members of the Jujamcyn team remain, although several have new titles that company prexy Jordan Roth said more accurately delineated each exec’s primary area of responsibility.

“We restructured our senior team in an effort to work more effectively with both our theatergoers and our theatermakers to deliver a remarkable experience,” said Roth, who stepped into Jujamcyn’s top spot last year.

Paul Libin, formerly the producing director and veep, becomes exec veep while Jack Viertel, who had previously been billed as creative director, is now senior veep. Meredith Villatore remains chief financial officer. Hal Goldberg assumes the post of VP of theater operations, while Jennifer Hershey’s new title is veep of building operations.

Jujamcyn owns and operates five of Broadway’s 40 venues. The 2010-11 season at those houses has largely taken shape, with new entries including a holiday run of tuner “Elf” followed by the Daniel Radcliffe-toplined revival of “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” at the Al Hirschfeld Theater.

“The Book of Mormon,” the musical from the creators of “South Park,” opens this spring at the Eugene O’Neill.
