BENJAMIN LOWY

 
Benjamin Lowy is a theatre producer with experience working with top theatrical producers, writers, directors, and not for profit theatres. In 2016 Benjamin co-founded The Lowy Salpeter Company with Adrian Salpeter and serves as its artistic director. Benjamin curates a diverse body of work for theatre, opera and dance. In 2016 (its inaugural year), LSC was represented on Broadway by its involvement in Stephen Karam’s THE HUMANS which received the 2016 Tony Award for Best Play as well as the hit revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber's CATS.

Benjamin also co-produced the 60th Anniversary production of MY FAIR LADY in Australia, directed by Julie Andrews, which was the highest grossing show in Sydney Opera House history.

In 2017, LSC is developing and commissioning a number of new properties in New York and London in addition to investments in the Broadway production of INDECENT and a handful of other Broadway and West End shows.

Earlier in 2016 saw FULLY COMMITTED starring Jesse Tyler Ferguson and HADESTOWN Rachel Chavkin and Anaïs Mitchell's off-Broadway smash (New York Times critics' pick).

Benjamin is co-producing the new documentary RABBI from award winning director Sandi DuBowski. The film, 11 years in the making, follows the spiritual journey of Amichai Lau-Lavie as he embraces the ancient role of rabbi on his own terms - weaving together his explorations in a wide range of worlds – activist, gay, and counterculture. We see him grow up in the aftermath of the horrors of the Holocaust and navigate delicate political and ideological differences within his family. RABBI shows how religion, when reinvented for the modern world, can be a powerful force for global human rights and social justice.

In addition to his work in production, Benjamin is also both an advisor and backer of the ticketing app TodayTix, which offers heavily discounted tickets to Broadway musicals and plays. 70% of TodayTix users are millennials, and the app is helping to create a new generation of theatregoers by easing financial access to theatre tickets worldwide.

Benjamin Lowy is a graduate of the New School’s drama program with a major in theatre and history. He previously worked at the Old Vic Theatre (London) and The Geffen Playhouse (Los Angeles) and as an assistant company manager on the Broadway show A TIME TO KILL.

Benjamin is a member of the young patrons program at Lincoln Center, a young partner of the Public Theatre and a leader of the Tectonic Theatre Project’s artistic director’s circle.
