Huntington Names Lyndsay Allyn Cox Producing Director

Cox will supervise the producing and casting teams.

BOSTON: The Huntington Theatre Company has named actor, director, and producer Lyndsay Allyn Cox to be their new producing director. Cox will work alongside artistic director Loretta Greco.

“Lyndsay is a creative and strategic, big-minded leader. She will be a wonderful breath of fresh air at the Huntington,” Greco said in a statement. “Our national search brought us home to Boston, where Lyndsay’s breadth and depth of talent was undeniable. Her passion for theatre and for bringing artists together, along with her deep local ties, will help us forge even greater relationships in the community.”

Cox joins the Huntington after four years at the Boston Center for the Arts (BCA) as director of theatre arts and senior director of programs and experiences. At BCA, Cox curated the #hellablack event, which centered Black artistry and expression among Boston artists. Cox has directed and performed in works at many local companies, including SpeakEasy Stage Company, the Front Porch Arts Collective, and the Huntington, where she appeared in Our Daughters, Like Pillars and Witch. Cox was named to WBUR’s inaugural ARTery 25 List of millennials of color who are impacting arts and culture in Boston. She is a graduate of Appalachian State University.

“I am thrilled to be joining the Huntington at this exciting time,” Cox said in a statement. “I can’t wait to get right to work alongside Loretta and the rest of the team. The Boston theatre community has played such an important role in my career, and I am looking forward to giving back to the community in deep and meaningful ways.”

In her new role, Cox will supervise Huntington productions and the producing and casting teams. She will also serve as a line producer for certain productions and community partnerships.

The Huntington is Boston’s theatrical commons and is committed to welcoming broad and diverse audiences. The Huntington provides opportunities for students through education and community programs, develops playwrights and new plays, and acts as the host for other Boston-based arts organizations. As of 2021, the theatre had a budget of approximately $14.5 million.
