About Arthur Storch

Stage’s founding artistic director Arthur Storch (1925 - 2013), will be celebrated at the event with the premiere of a tribute video created by Syracuse University’s Office of Electronic Media Communications. The video will include interviews with those familiar with Storch and his legacy, including Alan Alda, Timothy Bond, Jim Clark, John Cullum, Taye Diggs, Jay Harrington, Virginia Kiser, Margaret Ladd, Tom Walsh, Vanessa Williams, and Ralph Zito.

Arthur Storch is remembered as a passionate, colorful and insightful pioneer of the regional theatre movement of the 1960s and 70s, putting Syracuse Stage on the map artistically and leading the 1980 renovation of Syracuse Stage’s 500-seat Archbold Theatre. As a professional artist and educator, he was integral in creating the unique relationship between Syracuse Stage and SU Drama, which through his efforts blossomed into a national model for sharing resources and talent between an undergraduate training program and a professional theatre. As the Producing Artistic Director for Syracuse Stage (1974 - 1992), Storch directed 30 plays ranging from Shakespeare to Beckett and supervised the production of more than 100 others.
