LINDA HEALEY  EDITORIAL DIRECTOR 

Healey is one of the leading editors of non-fiction in the U.S. She has worked with many of America’s foremost journalists, including Arthur Gelb of The New York Times, James Fallows of The Atlantic, Anne Applebaum of The Washington Post, and John McPhee of The New Yorker. Her devotion to journalistic talent is matched by her love of theater and her wide acquaintance with those who create it.

Theater has always been a special passion for her, as it was for her late husband, J. Anthony Lukas, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Common Ground: A Turbulent Decade in the Lives

of Three American Families. It was while working with directors Robert Egan of the Mark Taper Forum and Oskar Eustis, now Artistic Director of The Public Theater, on a stage adaptation of Common Ground, that Ms. Healey first recognized the rich potential of a magazine and website devoted to the theater, which would draw on the talents of major writers as well as distinct theatrical voices.

JULIE CROSBY, Managing Partner of OnStage Enterprises,

produces and manages theater, film, and new media.  She has over 50 theater productions to her credit—including shows on and off Broadway and internationally. Her 9-episode web series, HEIRLOOM, is an official selection of the 2017 Raindance Film Festival and is streaming on Vimeo with over 4 million views. Crosby holds a Ph.D. in medieval drama from Columbia University and was honored with the the 2013 Lilly Award for Outstanding Producer.
