All About Cody
A live entertainment consultant and Tony-nominated theatre producer, Cody was most recently represented on Broadway by Indecent and Significant Other, and last season by the Deaf West Theatre revival of Spring Awakening, which transferred from a 99 seat production in Los Angeles to Broadway in just 366 days. Recent co-producing and investing credits include Kinky Boots, It’s Only a Play, Mothers and Sons and Macbeth starring Alan Cumming. Upcoming projects that Cody is producing include The Band's Visit, direct from its sold-out and critically-acclaimed run at ATC, the revival of Sondheim's Merrily We Roll Along, which premiered last season in Los Angeles, and a world premiere musical by Steven Sater and Burt Bacharach.
In addition to producing his own projects, Cody consults for major studios, producers, theaters, and agencies to help them discover how they should market their shows for the best chance of financial and critical success. Previously, he oversaw marketing efforts for Los Angeles' Center Theatre Group and its three theaters: the Ahmanson Theatre, Mark Taper Forum and Kirk Douglas Theatre, attracting an audience of more than 500,000 and revenues of more than $30 million annually.
Prior roles included live entertainment management positions with Nielsen and NBCUniversal. Cody serves on the board of New York's Vineyard Theatre, one of the country's preeminent theaters for the creation and development of new plays and musicals, and also serves as Vice-chair of the board of GLAAD, the world's leading LGBT advocacy organization. He is an active member of the Broadway League, the National Association of Musical Theatre and the Travel and Tourism Research Association. He earned his MBA from the University of Notre Dame and is a graduate of DePaul University.
