"It has been an honor to be a part of Abingdon Theatre Company from its beginnings in a Manhattan brownstone to our current home on West 36th Street," Buttram said a press statement. "I am delighted to have worked with so many amazing playwrights, actors, directors, designers, and others during my tenure as Artistic Director. I look forward to welcoming my successor and guiding Abingdon towards a bright future." Buttram was among the group of theatre artists who founded the company in 1993, previously meeting bi-weekly in a brownstone near New York City's Abingdon Square Park for a series of new play readings. After several months, the group to established themselves as the Abingdon Theatre Company, dedicated to developing new plays. Buttram became artistic director in 2007, following a tenure as co-artistic director.
Buttram's career began as an actress at the New Orleans Repertory Theatre and has performance credits Off-Broadway and in regional theatre. She is also an award-winning playwright and director.
