Theatrical producer, talent manager, and press agent, Alan Eichler, has represented or produced numerous stage productions, including: The Dirtiest Show in Town, Women Behind Bars, The Neon Woman, Timbuktu, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, and Dreamgirls.

He’s worked with numerous luminaries of theatre and music like: Tom Eyen, Charles Ludlam, Geraldine Fitzgerald, Eartha Kitt, Melba Moore, the Rolling Stones, Paul Anka, Bobby Vinton, Edie Adams, Peggy Lee, Anita O’Day, Johnnie Ray, Lavern Baker, and Yma Sumac, among many others. Alan represented Jerry Rubin’s book, Growing Up at Thirty-Seven, and also worked closely with the late, great playwright, Terrence McNally on such plays as The Ritz, Where Has Tommy Flowers Gone?, Next, and Bad Habits.

Alan currently promotes legendary jazz harpist-pianist, Corky Hale.

In 1994, Alan produced an original musical, Swanson on Sunset, about the attempts of Gloria Swanson to create a stage musical out of Sunset Boulevard as a vehicle for herself.  Alan nurtured that project for many years, and now the film, Boulevard! A Hollywood Story, has finally reached fruition. Jeffrey Schwarz’s brilliant documentary traces Gloria Swanson’s ill-fated efforts as she joined forces with two gay writers who assisted her. The show was nearly produced before it all fell apart, which is the story at the heart of the documentary.
