The board of directors of Book-It Repertory Theatre has announced that Daniel Mayer has been hired as the new managing director of the Seattle drama company, effective Oct. 29.
Mayer is the former executive director of Kirkland Performance Center, a post he held from 2008 to 2014, and has 15 years of experience leading arts groups. He is replacing acting manager and Book-It’s ongoing co-artistic director Myra Platt, who stepped into the administrative role this summer after the departure of former manager Charlotte Tiencken.
Book-It is currently celebrating its 25th season of producing faithful stage adaptations of literary fictions. More information: www.book-it.org.
