Esquire Jauchem: Producer, Writer, Director & Designer for Television, Film, Theatre, Opera & Live Events






For the past forty years, Esquire Jauchem has had an extremely varied career in the performing arts. At the age of twenty-four he founded the Boston Repertory Theatre that, over the next ten years, became the most successful local theater company in Boston, originating over 40 shows with such dramatic luminaries such as James Kirkwood, Tommy Tune, Viveca Lindfors, Dick Shawn, and kick starting the careers of new-comers like David Morse (an original founding member of the Company).

uninterrupted delight"  ̶  BOSTON GLOBE


Esquire was also the Associate Director and Production Administrator of the Opera Company of Boston with world renowned conductor and director, Sarah Caldwell. He helped her stage many American premieres including The Trojans by Berlioz, Russlan and Ludmilla by Glinka, The Icebreak by Sir Michael Tippett, and the six hour epic, War and Peace by Prokofiev (which featured his entire acting company in key, non-singing roles.) Opera luminaries with whom he worked include Beverly Sills, Regine Crespin, Placido Domingo, James McCracken, Donald Gramm, Victoria De Los Angeles, and Shirley Verrett among scores of others.

"Esquire Jauchem's set and lighting catch the stark power and subtle tones that are Lenya's Hallmark."


Moving to New York, he founded Jauchem & Meeh Special Effects which has, for three decades, been dazzling opera and theatre audiences with storms, explosions, magic, and illusions. His special effect with Gregory Meeh vividly destroyed Troy and Moscow and the Temple of Solomon and then burned Beverly Sills at the stake.


Moving to California, Esquire become involved in electronic media where he has produced and/or directed over one thousand episodes of televison for NBC, CBC, Spike, UPN, E! Entertainment, and Style. Most recently he was the Supervising Producer for the wildly successful comedy/makeover show, Clean House starring Niecy Nash. That show was number one for the network for several years and resulted in two Emmy nominations for Esquire, and generated a spin-off special achieving the highest ratings in the history of Style.
