Stacey Mindich  

Stacey Mindich is a two-time Tony Award-winning producer and winner of the 2016 Robert Whitehead Award for Excellence in Commercial Producing.

She is honored to have worked with such artists as William Finn, Jason Robert Brown, Charles Strouse, Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, Jeanine Tesori, Adam Gwon, Benjamin Scheuer, Pasek & Paul, Michael Greif, James Lapine, Bart Sher, Jack O’Brien, Michael Grandage, Michael Mayer, Leigh Silverman, Diane Paulus, Marsha Norman, Will Eno, Steven Levenson, Quiara Hudes and many others.

Noteworthy recent productions include The Crucible, Blackbird, the Tony Award-winning Hedwig and the Angry Inch, The Bridges of Madison County (Tony Award, Best Score), Annie, The Heiress, Lucky Guy, The Cripple of Inishmaan, The Lion (Drama Desk Award), and Small Mouth Sounds, hailed by The New York Times and others as one of 2016’s best off-Broadway plays.

After critically-acclaimed and sold-out runs at both Arena Stage in Washington, DC and Second Stage Theatre off-Broadway, Stacey Mindich Productions’ newest musical, Dear Evan Hansen, opened on Broadway in 2016 to rave reviews, and is the recent recipient of six Tony Awards including Best Musical. Hailed by the New York Times as “a gorgeous new musical for anyone with a beating heart” and by the Washington Post as "one of the most remarkable shows in musical theater history," the original musical features a score by the Tony-winning composing team of Pasek & Paul, a book by Tony-winning playwright Steven Levenson, and is directed by Rent and Next to Normal’s four-time Tony-nominated Michael Greif.

Dear Evan Hansen was born out of a commissioning program at Stacey Mindich Productions that pairs emerging composers with the esteemed directors of our industry. Believing deeply in the need to premiere new musical works and nurture new voices, Stacey has also funded and enhanced productions for a variety of not-for-profit theaters including Playwrights Horizons (The Dead, Burnt Part Boys, The Shaggs, Far from Heaven and Fly by Night), The Roundabout Theatre Company (Ordinary Days and The Disappearance of Tom Durnin), Williamstown Theatre Festival (an as-of-yet untitled Benjamin Scheuer project) and Second Stage (Quiara Hudes’ Pulitzer Prize-winning Water by the Spoonful and Jason Robert Brown’s beloved The Last Five Years). Stacey has also established The Stacey and Eric Mindich Fund for Musicals at Lincoln Center Theater, to commission new musicals (Women on the Verge, Dogfight) and support stellar revivals such as the Tony Award-winning South Pacific and the Tony Award-winning The King and I.

Stacey is the co-chair of the board at New York City Center, home to the Tony Award-winning Encores series of musical revivals and its newest series, Stacey’s brainchild, Encores: Off-Center. Created by artistic director Jeanine Tesori, and now run by Michael Friedman, Off-Center spotlights off-Broadway revivals interpreted for a new generation. Stacey is a founding board member of the Lilly Awards, where she presents the annual “Go Write a Play Award,” which supports a new work by a female playwright every year. Past recipients include Tanya Barfield, Neena Beber, Heidi Schreck and Rehana Lew Mirza. She also initiated the “Fund for New Musicals” at the National Alliance for Musical Theater, where she was vice president of the board. Stacey is also a proud member of the board of The Jimmy Awards (The National High School Musical Theater Awards).

Prior to her career in theater, Stacey was a journalist and editor. She was Senior Editor at Town & Country for many years. Stacey began her career as a reporter for The New York Times, and has also written for Newsday, Self, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Departures. She is the author of the book Town & Country’s Elegant Weddings and her essays have appeared in a collection of anthologies called Social Graces.

Married to Eric Mindich for 21 years, their proudest co-productions are sons Russell, Danny and Charlie.
