Larry O’Connor is the Editor-in-Chief of Breitbart.tv. After a long day of watching, evaluating and publishing news and political videos he hosts “The Stage Right Show” every weeknight at Midnight, ET. He is also a featured contributor to Big Government, Big Journalism and Big Hollywood (where he began writing as an anonymous conservative from the theatre industry under the pseudonym “Stage Right”).
Prior to becoming a conservative agitator, O’Connor worked for over two decades in the theatre industry. A motivated self-learner, he arrived in New York City at the age of nineteen with only a high school diploma and the burning desire to learn about and work in the professional theatre world. He took the first job he could get, a mail runner for the Shubert Organization, Broadway’s oldest and largest theatre owner/producer. After five promotions in four years, O’Connor was transferred to Los Angeles to manage the company’s largest theatre, Century City’s Shubert Theatre.
While at the Shubert LA, O’Connor oversaw the operations of the 2,000 seat theatre as it played host to such high-profile and groundbreaking productions as Sunset Blvd. (American Premiere), Ragtime (American Premiere) and Beauty and the Beast (longest running show at the Shubert, LA). Additional productions included Cats, Chicago, Rent, A Chorus Line, The Secret Garden, City of Angels and many more.
O’Connor was also very involved in the Los Angeles theatre community serving on the Executive Board of the League of Los Angeles Theatres including a year as the Board President. During his time with the League, he was instrumental in creating Los Angeles’ same-day discount ticket program, as well as the creation of Los Angeles’ peer-judged theatre awards, The Ovation Awards. He also served as Executive Producer of the Ovations in 1994 (Alex Theatre), 1995 (Cerritos Center for the Arts) and 2001 (Kodak Theatre).
In 1999 O’Connor began his own independent production and management company specializing in live theatrical events. He worked as General Manager or Producer for such shows as Sweeney Todd (Kelsey Grammer, Neil Patrick Harris), A Knight Out (Sir Ian McKellen), My One Last Nerve (Ruby Dee), and Ten Commandments, the Musical (Val Kilmer, Adam Lambert).
O’Connor is married to Sabrina Lu who’s claim to fame is playing “Scorpina” in the children’s action show Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. They have four, home-schooled children and live in Southern California.
