The North Carolina theatre’s first season under its new artistic director will include a mix of classics and new plays.
As the new artistic director of PlayMakers Repertory Company, she is focusing on new plays, diversity, community, and the future.
From a Thanksgiving comedy, to exciting new hires, to ‘Scrooge in Love!’, five theatre artists preview what they’re working on, and what they’re looking forward to.
She’ll leave the helm of Chautauqua Theatre Company to take the reigns of the North Carolina repertory company in 2016.
The final season from outgoing a.d. Joseph Haj will include solo shows by Trieu Tran and KJ Sanchez, plus a new take on ‘Three Sisters’ by Libby Appel.
To replace its longtime a.d., the venerable Minneapolis company taps an actor/director with a wide-ranging—you might even say ‘diverse’—history in U.S. resident theatres.
From little black dresses to jeans, bicycles to balloons, six memorable reinventions of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s “Into the Woods” from 2014 (not counting the movie).
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.
