Note:
The chronology observes the Theatre seasons, which by definition start in autumn each year and continue until the summer of next year.
We have marked with Bold the names of managers, in the order of appearance in the list, only at the first occurrence (many repeat themselves over time, holding the manager position several times). Thus, at the final count, Ion Caramitru is the 46th NTB manager.
