Meet Founder, Justin Okin, Actor & Producer

My name is Justin Okin. I am an actor and producer living in Los Angeles. It has been my lifelong goal to support bold, thought-provoking, and entertaining theatrical work while making it accessible to all. Sold Out Crowd is my newest approach to honoring that dedication.

In addition to being the proud owner/manager of Sold Out Crowd, I have an extensive theatre background. Having performed and presented stage productions since I was a teenager in the Bay Area theater scene, I then studied drama at Sarah Lawrence College in New York. I have produced and appeared in world premiere productions in New York, Edinburgh and Los Angeles.

I am a member of Rogue Machine Theatre, The Road Theatre, and a former member of Theatre of NOTE (where I sat on the Board for several years), Actors Equity Association and SAG/AFTRA.  My connections to hundreds of professional LA theatres as an actor and producer give me a unique ability to run an audience development company that serves its members and supports local theatres in ways that similar companies never have.
