2010 Theatre Hero: Michael Maso
StageSource announced Monday that our very own managing director has been named this year's Theatre Hero. They write:
"Maso has been at the helm of the Huntington since 1982 and has long been a respected local and national arts leader. He has been instrumental in making the Huntington a place for theatre artists to thrive, and he has extended his philosophy throughout the cultural community in Greater Boston. His service on various boards including StageSource, ArtsBoston, and Massachusetts Advocates for Arts, Sciences and Humanities coupled with his drive and leadership in the development and creation of the Calderwood Pavilion has changed and improved the local theatre scene at all levels. The Calderwood has provided a home for many local organizations, shined the spotlight on new play development, and serves as a hub for the theatre community.
The award will be presented at the Elliot Norton Awards on Monday, May 17, 2010. Read more here.
