Warner leaves New Rep
The New Rep's Artistic Director, Kate Warner, has suddenly resigned, according to the Globe's blog "Culture Desk." The New Rep has "declined to discuss" the departure, and Warner has not replied to requests for an interview. I have to say I'm not entirely surprised by this development (rumors had swirled around the New Rep for months), but it's sad to contemplate such an abrupt and strange ending to a directorship that began with such high hopes. It sounds from the article as if the New Rep intends to carry on with the season that Warner had planned for next year; a Board member is quoted as saying a search for her replacement will probably take "a number of months." Stay tuned . . .
