Four-time Tony Award-winning producer Robert Cole comes to Notre Dame for a special evening to discuss his experience in the entertainment industry focusing on his remarkable life in the theatre…so far. Cole has worked in the professional theatre since 1975 as a producer, general manager, teacher, literary agent and actor. In 1979, he founded the Michael Chekhov Studio, an acting school for professional actors in New York, and served as its artistic director until 1982 when he began to pursue a career in producing.
His extensive theater resume includes producing A Steady Rain (with Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman); The Crucible (with DPAC favorite Liam Neeson and Laura Linney); Death of a Salesman (with Brian Dennehy); Angels in America; Elaine Stritch: At Liberty (with, you guessed it, Elaine Stritch); One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (with Gary Sinise) and 2012 Tony Award winner for Best Musical: Once
Note to all ushers, the shift for this is filled but the event is free and there are plenty of tickets available so if you have any interest in theatre, as I know you do, please bring a friend and come on down to enjoy!
