ARI ROTH

A producer, playwright, director and educator, Ari Roth founded Mosaic Theater Company of DC in December 2014 to create powerful, transformational, uncensored and socially relevant art. As artistic director of Theater J from 1997 to 2014, Roth built the fledgling theater into the largest and most respected Jewish theater in North America, while expanding its mission to incorporate the exploration of universal themes as well as the celebration of cultural heritage. Over the course of 18 seasons he produced more than 129 productions, including 44 world premieres, and created festivals such as Locally Grown: Community Supported Art and Voices From a Changing Middle East. In 2005, The New York Times called Theater J “the premiere theater for premieres” for Roth’s production of plays by Wendy Wasserstein, Richard Greenberg, Ariel Dorfman, Joyce Carole Oates and Robert Brustein. In 2008, Theater J was honored with the DC Mayor’s Arts Award for Excellence in an Artistic Discipline, and two years later Roth was named one of “The Forward 50” nationally prominent “men and women leading the American Jewish community into the 21st century.” Roth's plays have been nominated for five Helen Hayes Awards, including two for subsequent productions of his Born Guilty, originally commissioned and produced by Arena Stage in 1991 under the direction of Zelda Fichandler, and then produced at Theater J in repertory with its sequel, The Wolf In Peter, eleven years later. Roth is a two-time recipient of National Endowment for the Arts playwriting grants, four-time recipient of commissions from the Foundation for Jewish Culture and two-time recipient of the Avery Hopwood Award. He has taught at the University of Michigan since 1988, currently for their Michigan in Washington program.
