Hanauer, a long-time resident who develops commercial real estate and real-estate Internet sites, has served on the Playhouse’s board for two years. He also serves on the boards of Laguna Beach Live! and the Mission Hospital Foundation.
He understands how critical it is to integrate the Playhouse into the community, said Executive Director Karen Wood.
Going forward, Hanauer expresses enthusiasm working with the board as the Playhouse “expands its impact on the cultural and intellectual life of South Orange County.”
