Joan Stein

Producer
( b. Jun 07, 1953 New York, New York, USA - d. Aug 03, 2012 Los Angeles, California, USA ) Female
Stein and her producing partner, Susan Dietz, ran the Canon Theatre in Beverly Hills for 10 years. Their first success was A.R. Gurney's Love Letters, which opened in 1990, and featured a rotating cast of celebrities. While at the Canon, Stein also produced Stuart Ross' Forever Plaid and Marvin Laird and Joel Paley's musical spoof Ruthless!

Stein also was a producer of Picasso at the Lapin Agile that opened in 1994 at the Westwood Playhouse, now the Geffen Playhouse. Martin's play, which envisioned a connection between the artist and Albert Einstein at a Paris bar, became a hit and ran for more than 300 performances.

Stein left the Canon in 2000 to pursue a career in television, and the theater closed in 2004.

After leaving the Canon Theatre, Stein formed a TV production company with Martin and collaborated on several projects.

Her stage career also included a stint as the managing director of the Berkshire Theatre Festival in Massachusetts. Stein's recent stage projects included Motherhood Out Loud, which ran at Primary Stages in New York and at the Geffen Playhouse in 2011 under the title In Mother Words. She also produced Standing on Ceremony, a series of plays about gay marriage, that ran at the Largo at the Coronet Theatre in Los Angeles.
