Broadway World (01/16/24) Rabinowitz, Chloe
The Broadway League President Charlotte St. Martin is retiring on Feb. 16. Jason Laks, The League's executive vice president and general counsel, has agreed to serve as Acting President while a search for St. Martin's permanent successor is conducted. During her nearly 18-year tenure at the reins of The Broadway League, St. Martin has grown the organization and steered it through economic shifts, labor challenges and the COVID-19 pandemic. Kristin Caskey, current Chair of The Broadway League's Board of Governors, notes, "When Broadway shut down for two years during the pandemic, it was under Charlotte's steadfast leadership that the League helped create the Shuttered Venues Operations Grant and the New York City Musical and Theatrical Production Tax Credit, two vitally important initiatives that ensured the successful return of our industry." The Broadway League is the national trade association for the Broadway industry representing over 700 members from nearly 200 global markets. St. Martin will continue serving in an advisory capacity for special events through the 2024 Tony Awards.
