TED PAPPAS (Producing Artistic Directorcelebrates his 16th season as The Public’s leader and his 23rd year of close association with the company as a director.  Acknowledged for his tremendous versatility, Ted has worked on and off-Broadway, directed a hip-hop concert that galvanized the Cannes Film Festival, produced and directed a Las Vegas extravaganza for impresario Steve Wynn, choreographed a musical for famed director Harold Prince, directed at New York City Opera under the leadership of Beverly Sills, and served as choreographer of NBC’s Saturday Night Live. He has travelled from coast to coast and Canada staging productions for major regional theaters and opera companies, establishing a reputation as a uniquely gifted man of the theater.  In 1998 he was elected President of the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society, the national labor union. For Pittsburgh Public Theater he has staged 49 shows, encompassing an extraordinary range of styles and periods.  His acclaimed production of The Chief played to standing-room only houses for nine seasons and was filmed. His productions of Oedipus the King, The Importance of Being Earnest, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Amadeus, and My Fair Lady broke Public Theater box office records. At the end of the current season, Ted will have produced over 100 productions for Pittsburgh Public Theater, including 10 world and American premieres.  He studied Shakespeare with Samuel Schoenbaum and modern drama with Eric Bentley, and holds degrees from Manhattan’s Hunter College and Northwestern University.
