Lincoln Center Theater has announced that Evan Cabnet will succeed Paige Evans as artistic director of LCT3 commencing July 1. Evans was recently named artistic director of the Signature Theatre Company.
“I’ve had the pleasure of calling Lincoln Center Theater an artistic home for many years and I’m thrilled and humbled to assume the position of Artistic Director at LCT3,” said Cabnet in a statement. “The championing of new playwrights has always been my passion, and I’m very excited to continue this work in this new capacity. Paige Evans has always been my mentor and advocate, and although she leaves big shoes to fill, I look forward as I turn from directing to producing to introducing audiences to new voices, new stories, and new artists."
Also effective July 1, LCT3 associate Natasha Sinha will take on the role of associate director at LCT3.
LCT3 was established by Lincoln Center Theater in 2008 to produce the work of new artists. Past productions include Ayad Akhtar’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Disgraced and The Who & The What; Amy Herzog’s 4000 Miles; David Adjmi’s Stunning; and Nick Jones’ The Coward and Verité, among many others.
