Leadership transitions at Mu Performing Arts, Penumbra Theatre, and the Guthrie Theater raise questions as well as expectations for the future.
The season, partly selected by incoming artistic director Joseph Haj, is big on revivals, as well as area premieres of David Greig’s ‘The Events’ and Ayad Akhtar’s ‘Disgraced.’

Joseph Haj wins the 2014 Zelda Fichandler Award, in recognition of his commitment to the arts in North Carolina and to the national resident theatre scene.
