Paul Libin has been a staple of Broadway and Off-Broadway for more than a quarter century. When he served as the Producing Director of Circle in the Square from 1963 to 1990, Paul brought the work of O’Neill, Williams and Ibsen to the Broadway stage. His undying love of the classics is mixed with a deep passion for new and innovative theater. Currently, Circle in the Square houses the 12 time Tony nominee and critically acclaimed Fun Home. Paul is also the President of Broadway Cares/ Equity Fights AIDS and Producing Director of Jujamcyn Theatres. We are thrilled and honored to have this great man On the Couch!
