Above The Title Entertainment was established in 2006 as a theatrical production company and marketing consultancy. Its founder, Jed Bernstein, had competed a 15+ year career as a successful advertising executive, and immediately prior, he served as President of the Broadway League, the theatre industry’s trade association.
Above The Title projects have included the acclaimed off-Broadway musical revue, “Don’t Quit Your Night Job;” the 7-time Tony Award nominated "Passing Strange;" the smash London import "Equus," starring Daniel Radcliffe; the Broadway debut of David Mamet’s "Oleanna" with Julia Styles and Bill Pullman; the Tony Award winning revival of “Hair;” and the revival of “Driving Miss Daisy” on three continents with James Earl Jones and Vanessa Redgrave in New York and London and Angela Lansbury joining Mr. Jones in Australia.
Successful entertainment consulting projects have been completed for such distinguished organizations as Bloomberg Philanthropies, Manhattan Theatre Club, The New York YMCA, and NYC and Co.
Above The Title served as the backdrop to Jed Bernstein’s leadership of the Commercial Theatre Institute from 2006-2013.
In partnership with the BridgeStreet Foundation, Above The Title was the motivating force in the revitalization and management of the historic Bucks County Playhouse beginning in 2011.
Current projects include “Roe” by Lisa Loomer slated for Broadway next season, in partnership with Daryl Roth and Lauren Mitchell as well as “Bull Durham - A New Musical” in partnership with Jack Viertel and Laura Stanczyk.
Above The Title serves as the New York headquarters of Theatre Aspen, of which Mr. Bernstein is Producing Director.
