Keith Marston has over 36 years of experience in theatre property management with a passion for the theatrical entertainment industry, a love of theatre history and theatre architecture and design with a working knowledge of commercial theatre in America today.

Keith is the Vice President of Facilities with The Shubert Organization, Inc. in New York, NY. He is involved in all matters of the department's business including working with city agencies and professional architects and engineers. He oversees all aspects of day-to-day maintenance and operations including the custodial and engineering departments and painting and maintenance crews. He is the chief liaison for incoming production requirements into 17 Broadway theatres and half a dozen Off-Broadway theatres, and coordinates restoration schedules for the same theatres post-production.

His project management experience includes completion of a new Tele-Charge call center space after 30 years in a previous location. He works with adjacent construction and development teams in the Times Square area, as well as with Shubert's real estate and legal departments to secure optimum conditions and protections for productions either loading-in, loading-out, or running, and he works closely with house mangers to address each theatre's needs.

Keith served as a project manager prior to serving as the Facilities Director, with The Shubert Organization starting in March 1987, where he was responsible for completion of a wide variety of projects from start to finish, including full theatre renovations, seating and carpet replacements in theatres with productions in place, and multiple exterior facade restorations. He worked in cooperation with NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission on projects affecting the landmark status of Shubert Theatres. He led complete departmental renovations at Shubert's corporate offices as well as high-end buildouts for several Broadway producers. He was Building Manager of the Sardi Building, which houses Shubert's corporate headquarters, The Dramatists Guild, and the renowned eatery to the stars, Sardi's Restaurant.

Prior to joining Shubert, from 1986-87 Keith was a Media Resource Service Associate for Scientists Institute for Public Information (SIPI), where he aligned academic experts with electronic and print media sources (news outlets). In 1986, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, he was an apprenticed master plasterer in the creation of The Gothic Revival Room of the American Wing.

Keith has a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from SUNY Purchase and an Associate's degree from Westchester Community College.
