Dear Friends and Patrons of CFI’s Steve Allen Theater,

I am pleased to report that 2012 brings with it some exciting changes at our theater. For the past eight years, Amit Itelman, our founding artistic director, has brought a consistent stream of thought-provoking, imaginative, and adventurous productions to our stage. Now, with the new year, Itelman will be leaving CFI to direct his own new independent production company called Trepany House, a multidisciplinary arts organization dedicated to the cultivation of original creative endeavors.

The good news is that Itelman’s unique productions will still light up the stage at CFI’s Steve Allen Theater. Though not a part of CFI, Trepany House will present its shows at the Steve Allen Theater, allowing you to continue to attend quality theater shows as well as our featured CFI lectures and social activities.

This special arrangement is the best of both worlds for theatergoers and CFI members alike, and we are all very excited about the new possibilities it presents. We thank Itelman for his dedication over the years, and we look forward to working with him in his new endeavor. We trust that you’ll enjoy the new Trepany House shows as much as you have enjoyed Itelman’s previous productions.

If you would like to learn more about Trepany House productions at the Steve Allen Theater, sign up for their mailing list, or purchase tickets online, please visit their new website:

Thank you for your support of the Steve Allen Theater! We wish you the best in the new year.


Jim Underdown
