Sybil Trubin

( b. circa 1925 - d. Nov 03, 2013 Santa Monica, California, USA ) Female

Sybil Trubin's first job in 1947 as a go-fer on the Broadway production of Brigadoon resulted in her being hired by its star, Marion Bell, and Marion's composer husband, Alan Jay Lerner. She later worked as a talent agent, at the production office of the City Center of Music and Drama, and at the production office of renowned Shakespearean actor and producer Maurice Evans. When in 1954 Sybil went on to produce her first season at the Cherry Lane Theater in New York City, the New York Times referred to her as "a young lady from Rye." That "young lady," with her partners Robert Merriman and Warren Enters with whom she shared life long friendships, produced 5 shows at the Cherry Lane and won the first Tony ever awarded to an off-Broadway organization for its presentations of among others, The Way of the World and Thieves Carnival. In the mid 50's Sybil began her long association with stage and television director/producer George Schaefer, and in 1959 when George formed his own production company, Compass Productions, Sybil became its Vice President of Business Affairs--for over a decade, first as a talent consultant or in charge of casting and then supervising all business matters for Compass. Sybil was instrumental in the production of over 30 award-winning Hallmark Hall of Fame and other television productions.
