Meet the Icarus team

Max Lewendel

CEO - Artistic Director

My ideal job is directing Shakespeare in a unique way: kinetic and through a “contemporary lens” . I also am thrilled about all sorts of tragedy; the darker and deeper the better.Taking the audience on an emotional journey that weaves together with the best dialogue I can find.
