MullinoAlmost exactly two years ago, we did a story on local music director and pianist Mark Mullino, calling him the “Renaissance man” of North Texas musicians. Well, Mullino is now extending his reach to include producing. He has teamed with Stephanie Riggs (a staple on local stages, including Uptown Players’ annual Broadway Our Way fundraiser) and Brad Baker (whose leadership of the Collin County Community College’s theater department has develops talents including Michael Urie and Brian J. Smith) to serve as co-artistic director of a new company, Our Productions Dallas. The goal is to produce “small works with big hearts,” according to a release, in Dallas. The season announcement will take place at a party at Mullino’s house on Jan. 15, which will also serve as a fundraiser for the new company.
