DAVID BINDER has spent the last decade bringing new artists and audiences to the theatre. He produced the Tony Award winning revival of Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun and Moises Kaufman’s 33 Variations starring Jane Fonda.
This September he is producing The New Island Festival on New York’s Governors Island. The 10-day festival of Dutch theatre, dance, music and art is comprised of work previously seen at De Parade and Oerol festivals.
Off Broadway, at De La Guarda, a group of flying Argentines literally lifted a young international crowd off its feet for six years. He is currently producing the Argentines’ new show, Fuerza Bruta. David is the original producer of John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask’s rowdy, loud and ultimately sweet rock ’n’ roll musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch. With Lisa Kron’s 2.5 Minute Ride and Danny Hoch’s Taking Over, David has showed his support for new writing that is polemical, political, and hilarious.
Other credits include the High Line Festival, curated by David Bowie; Meow Meow’s Meow to the World; The Public Sings: A 50th Anniversary Celebration for the Public Theater; and five shows with the Donmar Warehouse, including Frost/Nixon and Mary Stuart on Broadway and Guys and Dolls in the West End. He currently teaches at the Yale School of Drama.
