New City has named Cathy Taylor as one of The Players 2013: The 50 People Who Really Perform in Chicago

Cathy Taylor
Founder and president, Cathy Taylor Public Relations

"While most six-year-olds are struggling to keep their lemonade stand afloat, the six-year-old Cathy Taylor Public Relations has impressively grown to handle publicity for many of the major theaters in the city, including the Tony Award-winning Lookingglass, Chicago Shakespeare and Victory Gardens. Whether the cast of Black Ensemble’s “The Other Cinderella” is performing live on WGN or recent Chicago Shakespeare actor (and Star Wars Emperor Palpatine) Ian McDiarmid is being interviewed by the Tribune, Cathy or vice president Schoenly Hixson can likely be found hovering nearby, in total control of the situation but always keeping the atmosphere pleasant and light. Despite her firm’s formidable roster of clients, each receives concentrated, individualized attention. From an outsider’s perspective, one would never realize that theaters as artistically divergent as A Red Orchid and Court don’t have their own in-house publicist. That’s where Cathy Taylor comes in. Pay no attention to the publicist behind the curtain!" –New City
