executive director, lucas willett

Lucas Willett is an Australian somewhat lost in Chicago. Despite having absolutely no background in theatre, Lucas is happiest when he’s funding, organizing, planning, and scheduling to get the best artists together and watching the resulting theatre happen. He has been a software engineer and engineering manager in some of Chicago’s most- and least-loved tech companies, and enjoys putting all of that hard-won experience to use, driving forward the state of Chicago storefront theatre production.
