26 Jun 2014
Women's Project Theater, the non-profit company dedicated to producing plays written and directed by women, has begun a national search for a new artistic director.
The artistic director will succeed former producing artistic director Julie Crosby. During her six-year tenure, Crosby produced more than 25 plays by women playwrights and directors.
Jessica R. Jenen, former executive director of Classic Stage Company, will serve as interim executive producer.
Founded in 1978 by Julia Miles to address the significant under-representation of women theatre artists, Women's Project Theater is the nation's oldest and largest company dedicated to producing and promoting plays written and directed by women.
Women's Project Theater has produced and/or developed over 600 main stage productions and developmental projects and published 11 anthologies of plays by women.
