Stories by Teresa Eyring
Teresa Eyring is executive director of Theatre Communications Group (TCG), the national organization for theatre, and publisher of American Theatre. Prior to arriving at TCG in March 2007, Eyring spent more than twenty years as an executive in theatres around the U.S. Positions included managing director of the Children’s Theatre Company in Minneapolis from 1999 to 2007; managing director of the Wilma Theater in Philadelphia from 1994 to 1999; and assistant executive director of the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis from 1989 to 1993. She began her theatre career as director of development for the Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company in Washington, D.C. She holds a BA in International Relations from Stanford University and an MFA in Theatre Administration from Yale School of Drama. She is a member of the boards of the Performing Arts Alliance, and The Actors Fund. Under her leadership, TCG adopted a new strategic plan with a major focus on diversity and inclusion, as well as audience and community engagement. With this plan, TCG has articulated a new, unifying vision statement. In summary it is: “A better world for theatre. A better world because of theatre.”
