Skylight Theatre Company has announced Armando Huipe as its new executive director, effective immediately. Huipe moves into the position most recently occupied by Sandee Grossman, who now serves as managing director.
Prior to joining the Skylight team, Huipe worked as an independent arts management consultant in Los Angeles, supporting companies such as Center Theatre Group, Yale Repertory Theatre, REDCAT, the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Latino Theater Company.
He formerly served as producer for the national Latinx Theatre Commons, a flagship program of HowlRound Theatre Commons at Emerson College.
Huipe earned his master of fine arts in theater management at the Yale School of Drama, where he served as managing director of Yale Cabaret and was on the executive committee of the Graduate and Professional Student Senate.
He consulted on the university-wide equity, diversity and inclusion initiative, Belonging at Yale, and was given a semester-long fellowship at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts working with Jon Moscone and Marc Bamuthi Joseph on the 2018 YBCA 100 Summit.
Huipe is a founder of the Latinx Theater Alliance/Los Angeles.
“We are thrilled to have Armando Huipe join us in this new chapter of our growth and development,” Skylight producing artistic director Gary Grossman said. “Armando’s expertise in arts management is a wonderful asset to our already strong and diverse team.”
Skylight’s collaborative 2021/22 season with Playwrights’ Arena continues with several new plays being offered.
“Apartment Living” by Boni B. Alvarez opens March 12 and delves into behavioral changes in forced captivity during the pandemic in Los Angeles.
The third show of the season will soon be announced. The new play will open in May, followed by the final show of the season, which is slated to be “Lavender Men,” an emancipation play by Roger Q. Mason, opening in August 2022.
All guests and staff are required to wear a mask and provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination, along with a government or educational institution issued photo identification. Health and safety measures, based on evolving conditions and applicable protocols, are subject to change at the companies’ discretion.
