"Becoming the managing director of The Actors' Gang fulfills a dream for me," said Doran in a statement. "The Gang's powerful, internationally renowned ensemble offers unlimited possibilities. With a committed board of trustees, the focused artistic leadership of Tim Robbins, the incredible skills of the ensemble, and the energy of Culver City and the greater Los Angeles community, The Actors' Gang is ready to tackle the challenge of moving to the next level of its organizational and creative growth. It is a great joy for me to join Tim at this critical time and help lead this gathering of visionaries to even higher levels of success."
