Jeremy Shamos



Born in NY in 1935.  BA from Yale, 1956, LLB Columbia Law School 1960.  Associated with Mark Goodson, of Goodson Todman Productions for over 30 years.  Never had a title, but functioned as Mark’s consiglieri until his death in December 1992, at which point I became acting CEO of his various companies until their sale in 1995.

While working for Mark, sometimes full time, sometimes part time, I also worked as a lawyer, two years on Wall Street with Hughes Hubbard Blair & Reed, two years in Paris, France with Coudert Freres, three years with The Center for Law & Research (a public interest law firm which I founded in Denver, CO) and three years as Counsel to the Governor of Colorado, Richard Lamm.

I have also served on various not for profit Boards, notably 16 years St. John’s College (Annapolis and Santa Fe); four years co-chair (with my wife Susan) of Opera Colorado; five years as Chair of Curious Theater Company (Denver); more years than I can count on The Acting Company Board (NY) and currently for TCG as a member of the National Council for the American Theatre (Theatre Communications Group, the umbrella organization for the American non-profit theatre).  Have left all other Boards, the better to enjoy my four children (including my NY actor son, Jeremy) and my eight grandchildren, but couldn’t say no to Jim.
