(Producer) Yuvika Tolani is a producer drawn to the interaction of form, content, and process. As Assistant Line Producer at The Public Theater, she executes the Readings and Workshops program, collaborating with artists to structure processes that best serve the work they are creating. Prior to The Public she was part of the fundraising team at the American Repertory Theater at Harvard. Yuvika began her exploration of the role of a producer in developing new work while pursuing Theater Studies at Yale University. That work later fed into developing an original musical, Scorched, alongside writer/director Molly Houlahan and composer Benji Goldsmith. Scorched will have its premiere production this October as part of the Araca Project’s 2016 season. Yuvika comes to New York with an already-split allegiance to her original hometowns: Mumbai and Singapore. A product of disparate cultures, she is a big believer in the universal impact of a powerful story.
