About Nick Keenan
Nick Keenan is a Chicago-based theater artist, and his trades include sound design, web and graphics design, production management, and playwriting. He has designed over 75 productions in the Chicago area, is a sound operator at the Goodman Theatre, and redesigned the premiere free theater jobs search site, backstagejobs.com, which has helped theater designers, administrators and technicians find work in a difficult industry for over a decade. He has worked with dozens of theater companies ranging in size from 50-seat storefronts to LORT A Regional Theaters, and learned much from the management systems and styles of those theaters. (His ongoing relationships with those theaters also depend on a certain level of trust and confidentiality, so don’t expect any dirt.) Nick is passionate about theater infrastructure and its possibilities for the storefront theater community – and theater’s unique possibilities for the health and growth of individuals, communities, and the world. Thus, this blog.
