/// Tim Smith, Artistic Director, TOTEM Cirque Du Soleil
He has been a collaborative part of six original Broadway companies. These include several Tony Award winning productions – two of which were Grammy Award winning. These productions include Grease (with Rosie O’Donnell), Annie Get Your Gun (starring Bernadette Peters), Dream (a Johnny Mercer Musical), Disney’s AIDA (the Elton John Musical), Sweet Charity (Starring Christina Applegate) and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.
Tim then expanded his experience by developing television and film for Sony Pictures Television. Tim holds a B.S. in Telecommunications – Television & Radio Broadcasting – from James Madison University in Virginia.
He has now brought his passion for live performance art and his experience in the commercial entertainment industry to Cirque du Soleil. Tim was ultimately drawn to their constant dedication to crafting original, one of kind and innovative live events. Cirque du Soleil’s twenty original productions continue to stimulate and thrill the minds of their audiences around the world.
