MARILYN LANGBEHN (she/her)(Executive Artistic Director) is in her tenth season at CCCT. Productions for the company include Our Town, Anton in Show Business, Broadway Inside Out, Bright Star, All the Way, Ragtime, All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914, Cabaret, The Sound of Music, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)[revised], and The Mountaintop and the world premiere of The Lost Years, both of which began their lives at CCCT as part of the Reading Stage series. Her critically-acclaimed production of August: Osage County received Best Production and Best Director nods at the inaugural TBA Awards in 2014. She founded the Theatre’s Reading Stage series in 2015 to showcase the work of women playwrights and playwrights of color. To date, the series has produced more than 20 works, including plays by Katori Hall, Theresa Rebeck, Cynthia Wands, kimber lee, Leah Nanako Winkler, Jiréh Breon Holder, and Inda Craig-Galván, and the widely-acclaimed world premiere of her play, Running For My Life, about the January 6th insurrection. Marilyn also inaugurated the “Kitchen Table Conversation” Zoom series in 2020 to engage audiences in substantive conversation about the arts in an informal setting. She is a fierce advocate for arts education and equitable access to arts programming on both sides of the curtain and a champion of the next generation of theatremakers in our community.
