Lincoln Center Summer Festival is no more

The independent and often quirky event has been folded into the center’s general programming under artistic director Jane Moss (pictured).

    Funny how this person has no Wiki page given the high profile of her expanding duties. I wonder how old she is.

    • Gaffney Feskoe says:

      Don’t know how old Jane Moss is, but she has been at Lincoln Center for 25 years now. Profile of her appears in today’s N Y Times.

    • trolley80 says:

      I wonder what religion she was raised in, and where all of her nephews attended college

      • AnnaT says:

        I would like to know her favorite soups and what kinds of light bulbs she uses. (Olassus: she’s been around in high-profile arts programming for a very long time.)

    • MWnyc says:

      I believe the Times report said that Jane Moss is 65. (It also identified her “beau”, as she referred to him.)

    • Marnay says:

      Really wondering why her age is relevant….

      • Olassus says:

        It is wrong when people in these privileged, subsidized posts go on past retirement age, as if entitled, blocking opportunities for others to move up. (Worse when posts are merged, as here.) There are laws against doing so in many places for this reason.

        It is usual for public figures to have a public profile. The person we are discussing obviously should be listed on Wikipedia, with all the details that that normally entails. Being a public figure lessens your right to privacy.

    Yes, just who are her people??????? Amazing how everyone now seems entitled to personal information…and those willing to give it quite freely.
