Matt Blank is a multidisciplinary theatre professional who has most recently come off of a 10-year run as one of the Editors of Playbill.com and Editor-in-Chief of PlaybillArts.com. His work as an arts journalist, designer, educator and lecturer has taken him across the United States, as well as Madrid, Manila, Mumbai and Seoul. Matt handled social media for the Playbill brand for nearly two years, and published over 7,000 articles on their platform. He sits on the Advisory Board for Ripple Effect Artists, serves as a Theatre Bay Area Awards Adjudicator and provided live on-site media coverage at 5 Tony Awards ceremonies. After a 13-year retirement, Matt made his return to the stage in CMTSJ's Marquee production of SWEENEY TODD and South Bay Musical Theatre's concert staging CHESS. It was a huge mistake. He now resides in Manhattan with wife Alex Chester and a fucking cat.
