Octopus Theatricals

Founded by Tony and Grammy-winning producer Mara Isaacs, Octopus Theatricals collaborates with artists and organizations to foster an expansive range of compelling theatrical works for local and global audiences. We eschew boundaries—aesthetic, geopolitical, institutional—and thrive on a nimble and rigorous practice. Current projects include Hadestown by Anaïs Mitchell (Broadway, eight Tony Awards including Best Musical; Grammy Award, Best Musical Theater Album); Dreaming Zenzile by Somi Kakoma; SOCIAL! Dance Club created by Steven Hoggett, Christine Jones and David Byrne;  An Iliad by Lisa Peterson and Denis O’Hare (Obie Award); Dianne McIntyre’s  Speaking In The Same Tongue; And So We Walked by DeLanna Studi; Bill Irwin’s On Beckett; and Theatre for One and many more. In 2020, Octopus launched the Producer Hub, an online resource supporting independent producers in the experimental and performing arts sectors. www.octopustheatricals.com.
