The Alliance Theatre has appointed Mike Schleifer, who has worked for 13 years for Baltimore’s Centerstage, as its new general manager, beginning March 3.
Schleifer was Centerstage’s production manager for the last five seasons, and also worked at Playwrights Horizons Theater School at New York University and the Hangar Theater in Ithaca, N.Y.
“Mike’s extensive experience gives him a unique and thorough understanding of the internal operations of a large theater company at every level of the production process,” Alliance Artistic Director Susan V. Booth said in a statement. “We are confident that his leadership will be a great asset to the Alliance’s mission of shared theatre for diverse audiences.”
He replaces Max Leventhal, who was named to the new role of Owners’ Representative to the Woodruff Arts Center in September after a decade at the Alliance.
