Randy Weiner - Creative Producer

Hailed as “the leading impresario of nontraditional theater in New York” by the New York Times, and “a mad genius of nightlife” by The Wall Street Journal, Randy Weiner is a producer and playwright specializing in maximalist theatrical experiences.With partners Simon Hammerstein and Murtaza Akbar, Weiner is the driving force behind theater-nightclub concepts The Box (in New York and London), The Act (Dubai), and The Diamond Horseshoe at the Paramount Hotel in Times Square.

With partners Jonathan Hochwald and Arthur Karpati, Weiner produced the Drama Desk Award-winning theater experience “Sleep No More” at the formerly abandoned McKittrick Hotel. Weiner and his partners have gone on to restore the McKittrick Hotel to include a jazz club, Manderley Bar; a club theater, The Heath; and a roof garden restaurant, Gallow Green.
