Oskar Eustis has served as artistic director of The Public Theater in New York City since 2005. In the past four years, Eustis has produced two Tony Award-winning productions in the category of best musical (Fun Home and Hamilton), as well as two productions that won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama (Hamilton and Sweat). Prior to his role at The Public, Eustis enjoyed a storied career that began at the Eureka Theatre Company in San Francisco (1986–1989), where he commissioned Tony Kushner’s Angels in America, and directed its world premiere at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles. At The Public, Eustis directed the New York premieres of Rinne Groff’s Compulsion and The Ruby Sunrise; Larry Wright’s The Human Scale; Julius Caesar; Public Works Twelfth Night at Shakespeare in the Park; and Suzan-Lori Parks’ White Noise. Additionally, he has founded numerous groundbreaking programs at The Public, including Public Works, Public Forum, the Emerging Writers Group, and the Mobile Unit. Over the course of his career, Eustis has directed the world premieres of plays by Philip Kan Gotanda, David Henry Hwang, Emily Mann, Parks, Ellen McLaughlin, and Eduardo Machado, among many others.
