Susan E. Lee

Theater marketing maven Lee has worked to build the brand of Broadway. She’s proudest of two achievements: founding Camp Broadway, the summer program that has been engaging young theater fans for 20 years, and, more recently, launching Audience Rewards, the initiative that aims to reward Broadway fans the same way airlines stoke loyalty in their frequent fliers.
