“I am excited to be joining the passionate team of theater-makers at ACT. ACT has a rich history, and I am honored to be a part of its ongoing story. I look forward to working with my dedicated colleagues as we rethink what it means to make theatre, as we challenge ourselves and our audiences, and find new ways to deepen connections to our community.”
