CHRISTOPHER MASSIMINE (NYTF Chief Executive Officer and Executive Producer) is responsible for the brand transformation of NYTF over the last 6 years. Since his arrival, seasonal attendance has more than doubled, social reach has emerged as an Industry leader, thousands of new press and promotion opportunities have been secured, and service-focused growth-driven organizational policies have been developed and enacted.
Chris has stewarded the company in securing prominent producing affiliations and led the planning and execution of NYTF’s 2015 critically-acclaimed award-winning hit musical The Golden Bride (and its 2016 remount), and the timely and relevant Amerike–The Golden Land. This past season, he shepherded NYTF’s first Broadway venture as producers on Paula Vogel’s poignant period drama Indecent, which garnered several prominent accolades, including Tony Award wins for Director and Lighting, and a Tony Award nomination for Best Play.
Chris is the Board Chair of the Immigrant Arts Coalition, a Board Member at the Alliance of Resident Theatres/New York, and serves on Committees for the Producers Guild of America, Off Broadway League, NY Emmy Awards, and Mayor’s Cultural Community Council.
