Erika Levy is the new Audience Services Manager at MJTC.
In addition to being the first voice you hear when you call MJTC, she processes ticket and subscription orders, manages the lobby at our venue in the Highland Park Community Center, and helps plan event and Doorways programming.
What brought you to the Minnesota Jewish Theatre Company?
I’d been working at the Guthrie as a season ticket specialist and tour guide for a couple of years and fell in love with the Twin Cities theater community. I decided I want to pursue arts management as a career. I researched jobs and graduate programs and once I came across the Audience Service Manager position at MJTC, I knew I had found something special. Having the chance to run the ticket office has been both challenging and fulfilling. Coupling that with my box office and tour guide duties at the Guthrie, my life is all theater all the time, and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
Which MJTC show are you most excited for this season? Which other Twin Cities show are you looking forward to?
I am most looking forward to The Whipping Man. I think it’s important to explore the identities of Jews of color, and to feature stories that don’t often get told in the mainstream. The other play outside of MJTC that I am looking forward to is The Bluest Eye at the Guthrie next spring.
Why should MJTC audience members subscribe or renew this season?
I think we have really put together a compelling mix of plays that explore a range of issues, and we have a top-notch group of directors lined up to help tell these stories. You can call me to subscribe or use our form online!
What do you like to do in the
I love to bike. I bike to work every day and take leisurely bike rides all around the Cities’ wonderful bike trails. Before I moved here, I did not bike at all and now it is one of my favorite activities. I also love checking out new restaurants and of course going to all the theater I possibly can.
