Leonard A. Mulhern

General Manager, Manager
( b. circa 1928 Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, USA - d. Feb 01, 2013 Manhattan, New York, USA ) Male
Also known as: Leonard Mulhern
Mr. Mulhern graduated from Temple University before serving two years in the Army during the Korean War. He began working in the theatre as a box-office treasurer in Philadelphia, and also served in that capacity for ten seasons at the Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope, PA. His final show on Broadway was Strange Interlude.

In 1975 Mr. Mulhern was general manager on a Jules Fieffer play called Knock Knock, about two Jewish men who are visited by Joan of Arc. The producer, a Spanish-born businesswoman named Adele Holtzer who was relatively new to producing, asked if the actress playing Joan could be backlit with rays of light. "If you have enough money," replied Mr. Mulhern, "you can do anything."

In 1983 he was general manager of a quirky Off-Broadway musical revue called A Bundle of Nerves, which offered half-price tickets to people who could prove they were seeing a psycho-therapist. "We had a strong response to the offer," he told the New York Times, "maybe 10 or 20 a night."

Mulhern signed on as general manager for Tony N' Tina's Wedding in 1988, which was the interactive piece of theatre in the city. It became a steady job, running in New York for 20 years.

Mr. Mulhern was also inducted into ATPAM’s Diamond Club for having served 50 years in the union.
