Mark Bly is a Distinguished Professor of Theater at the University of Houston, where he teaches Playwriting and Dramaturgy. He has dramaturged over 70 productions at major regional theatres and on Broadway, including the premiere of Suzan-Lori Parks’s The America Play at the Yale Rep and Public Theater, the premiere of Moises Kaufman’s 33 Variations at the Arena Stage and La Jolla Playhouse, and (as the first production dramaturg to be credited on a Broadway production) Execution of Justice, written and directed by Emily Mann. In early 2009, Professor Bly again served as production dramaturg for Kaufman, who directed the highly acclaimed 33 Variations starring Jane Fonda, which opened at the Eugene O’Neill Theater on Broadway. Before joining the Alley, Professor Bly worked as Senior Dramaturg and Director of the New Play Development Series at the Arena Stage in Washington, D.C., after serving 12 years as Chair of the Playwriting Program at the Yale School of Drama and as Associate Artistic Director of the Yale Repertory Theatre.
