Director of Institutional Advancement
Todd directs all marketing, communications and institutional development efforts for Great Lakes Theater (GLT) - Cleveland's professional classic theater at Playhouse Square. He has served the institution in a host of capacities since 1999.
At the helm of GLT’s marketing and communications department, Todd conceived and executed a comprehensive audience research, re-branding and resource re-allocation initiative for GLT which has resulted in a 25% increase in attendance. During the process, he also created and implemented a marketing/communications plan which supported GLT’s successful $19.2M capital campaign to realize a new permanent home (Hanna Theatre, Playhouse Square) highlighted by national coverage in the Wall Street Journal, American Theatre Magazine and myriad other regional print and broadcast features.
As a member of GLT’s education department, Todd produced several series of outreach programming that pioneered partnerships with Cleveland’s public broadcasting stations, the Cleveland International Film Festival and over 30 other regional cultural organizations. He produced touring productions of 4 original plays and adapted/directed/designed 2 original oral history-based productions which were selected as models of excellence in humanities programming by the Ohio Humanities Council.
Artistically, Todd was twice honored with the Ohio Arts Council’s Individual Excellence Award in 3D Design & Illustration for his body of scenic design work and received the Cleveland Critics Circle Award for Best Scenic Design of 2013. He has collaborated with arts organizations that include Great Lakes Theater, Beck Center for the Arts, Cleveland Play House, Cleveland Public Theatre, Dobama Theater, Ensemble Theater, Playhouse Square and Stages Repertory Theater (among others).
Todd is also the Director of Marketing for Great Lakes Theater's cross-country strategic partner company, Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival. www.ToddKrispinsky.com
