George Street Playhouse


As chairman and chief executive officer of the Cabot Group, Steven M. Darien oversees the strategic solutions firm’s daily operations. In these roles, he utilizes his 30-plus years of experience to provide organizational design, succession planning, and employee communication to the Bridgewater, New Jersey, company. Active within his community, Steven M. Darien holds positions with several noteworthy organizations, including George Street Playhouse, where he is the chairman.

Established in 1974, George Street Playhouse is a nationally recognized theater that represents several on- and off-Broadway productions. This regional theater, located in New Brunswick, New Jersey, offers five main-stage productions during its season. In addition to productions performed on site, it features a touring theater that travels to more than 250 schools in the tri-state area.

To celebrate its 40th anniversary, George Street Playhouse aims to raise $500,000 divided among three separate funds. The artistic enhancement fund gives the theater an opportunity to mount larger-scale productions, such as musicals. Increasing the equipment replacement fund would allow the theater to replace a dimmer rack and purchase equipment that it currently rents. Contributions in the final category, the patron experience fund, would enable the theater to undergo upgrades to its facility, including handicap-accessible restrooms and cosmetic improvements.
