Production Manager Ruth Sternberg is the primary facilitator in executing a stage production within its given financial parameters. The Production Manager discusses with the director and designers what they want to achieve and provides staffing and resources for each play. After 10 years at Trinity Rep with Oskar Eustis, they both moved to the Public Theater where they work on 6 stages; Shakespeare in the Park at the Delacorte Theater, and off-site productions such as 'Passing Strange", "Hair", "Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson", and "The Merchant of Venice on Broadway". Sternberg loves that her job always brings a new challenge, such as the one seen here for Kicking a Dead Horse.
