David Binder

Advisory Panel

David Binder has spent the last decade bringing new artists and audiences to the theater. He produced the first Broadway revival of Lorraine Hansberry's classic A Raisin in the Sun, starring Sean Combs, Audra McDonald, Phylicia Rashad and Sanaa Lathan. The production won two Tony Awards and was widely recognized for bringing in the most diverse audience Broadway had seen in decades. He is an Executive Producer of the television movie based on the Broadway production. David is the original producer of John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask's rowdy, loud, and ultimately sweet rock n' roll musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Off-Broadway, at De La Guarda, a group of flying Argentines literally lifted a young international crowd off its feet for more than six years. David has brought the show everywhere from London to Las Vegas, Tokyo to Tel Aviv. With Lisa Kron's 2.5 Minute Ride (New York and San Francisco), and Kenny Lonergan's Lobby Hero (with the Donmar in the West End), David showed his support for new writing that is polemical, political, and hilarious. Other credits include The Public Sings: A 50th Anniversary Celebration for the Public Theater with Meryl Streep, Natalie Portman, Ben Stiller and Mike Nichols, among many others, the Donmar productions of Guys and Dolls and Frost/Nixon. He is currently producing Fuerzabruta the new show from the creators of De La Guarda.
