One would be hard-pressed to find a busier or more accomplished director working on Broadway today. A two-time Tony Award-winner, Mr. Mantello is currently represented on Broadway (and around the world) with Wicked, a show that will likely become the most successful musical in history. His first Tony Award was for directing Richard Greenberg's acclaimed Take Me Out and his second was for the revival of Stephen Sondheim's Assassins. Equally at home with musicals or plays, his other high-profile shows include Three Days of Rain (Julia Roberts), The Odd Couple, Glengarry Glen Ross, Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune, Laugh Whore (which was also filmed for Showtime), A Man of No Importance, Design for Living, Terrence McNally and Jake Heggie's Dead Man Walking for San Francisco Opera, The Vagina Monologues, bash, Another American: Asking and Telling, Love! Valour! Compassion! (stage and film), Proposals, The Mineola Twins, Corpus Christi, Mizlansky/Zilinsky or Schmucks, Blue Window, God's Heart, The Santaland Diaries, Lillian, Snakebit, Three Hotels, Imagining Brad and Fat Men in Skirts. For the 2007-2008 season he directed the revival of Terrence McNally's The Ritz and David Mamet's new play November. He is directing this season's much anticipated revival of Pal Joey. Mr. Mantello began his career as an actor and starred on Broadway (and at CTG/Mark Taper Forum) in Tony Kushner's Angels in America (Tony nomination) and Off-Broadway in The Baltimore Waltz. He is a member of Naked Angels and an associate artist at the Roundabout.
