Amber White: Broadway Stage Manager

This is the story of Amber White and her work as a Stage Manager on Broadway.

She’s served as Stage Manager for multiple Tony-winning shows including:

  • “Hamilton: An American Musical”
  • “Avenue Q”
  • “In The Heights”

Currently, Amber is the Stage Manager for “Hamilton: An American Musical” at the Richard Rodgers Theater on Broadway in New York.

“Working on a high-profile production like Hamilton is similar to working on a low-profile production,” she says, “once you’re within these four walls.” Her job is to be “the glue that holds everything together.”

This isn’t the career path Amber thought that she’d follow originally.

“When I first started [college], I thought that I would be an accountant,” she says. “I was doing theater as a hobby, then found out I could do this as a job and get paid for it.”

Amber started with small shows on campus. She was the only stage manager on crew. She set the props. Ran the lights. Managed the sound board.

In short, she did it all. And running the crew helped Amber to understand the hard work that goes in to making a successful theater production.
