MARY BUTLER (Booking Agent-West Coast and Midwest) comes to Off Broadway Touring with many years of experience as a music and theatre booking agent.  Throughout her tenure with Center Stage Artists, she documented countless conversations with artistic and executive directors regarding their desire to present small scale musicals and plays that fulfill both the creative spirit and sophistication of their audiences while remaining economically viable.   Year after year, presenters commented on their willing commitment to support theatrical productions, yet struggled to find shows composed of multiple characters, interesting and uncomplicated set designs, high-caliber singers, dancers and performers, as well as an overall experience of filling the four corners of the stage.  Mary is thrilled to be collaborating with experienced producers to introduce the country to a diverse lineup of prestigious and award-winning small-cast plays and musicals to “fit the bill.”
