Scott Elliott, one of the hottest directors in New York, adds another feather to his cap with the announcement that he has joined Roundabout Theatre Company as an associate artist.
Elliott, not to be confused with another Roundabout Associate, Scott Ellis (She Loves Me, Company), will direct Roundabout's spring 1997 Broadway revival of Anton Chekhov's The Three Sisters. It will be his second Broadway production of the year; he will direct Frank Langella in Present Laughter on Broadway this fall.
As founding artistic director of The New Group, he directed the 1995 Obie-winning Ecstasy. This past summer, he directed Arthur Miller's new play, Ride Down Mt. Morgan at the Williamstown Theatre Festival in Massachusetts.
