Jane Mandel Net Worth
Jane Madel sits on a net worth above $700 thousand.
She loved performing as an actor but became the artistic director.
As a child, Jane flew into the stage as a flying monkey in a Virginia version of “The Wizard of Oz.” Because her father was in the Navy, she spent her childhood moving around the country — in the South, the West, even in a trailer for a few years — but she was always on stage. “You couldn’t stop me,” she says. “It was an obsession.”
Jane went on to study English and theater at the University at Albany, SUNY and went on to NYU, where she had an assistantship to teach theater games and then taught after graduating.
She had recently completed her M.F.A. in theater at New York University, where she had studied acting and directing. Jane remained on the line for an open call all day, as she had done for months until her name was eventually called. A director slapped her headshot facedown on the table, unconcerned.
Jane ripped it up, tossed it in the trash, and walked away. It was her last chance to perform. “It dawned on me that you have the power to create your own work,” she told NJ.com. “You don’t have to fit somebody else’s mold.” And she hasn’t.
In 1992, Jane founded Luna Stage which became a professional theatre in 1995. For its first 18 years, the company made its home in Montclair, New Jersey, first in a small space on Walnut Street and then in a larger facility on Bloomfield Avenue.
The mission of Luna Stage is to produce thought-provoking theatre that gives voice to emerging American playwrights and re-examines contemporary and classic plays that speak to our times.
Originally based in Montclair and now housed in West Orange, the company is integral to the state theater scene.
Jane has taught at NYU School of the Arts, The New School for Social Research, The Whole Theatre, and Montclair State University. She developed and directed Luna’s first production In the Name of the Woman and the critically acclaimed “We don’t have enough sugar for the public” and was the director of the new comedy Rosa Loses her Face in 1997 Reckless in 1996.
