Charlotte Repertory Theatre
Founder & Artistic Director
Founded as Actors Contemporary Ensemble, Charlotte Rep grew to become the leading professional theatre in its 2.5m metro region, and resident company at Blumenthal Performing Arts Center. One of the 70+ national members of The League of Resident Theatres and the area's only AEA/LORT company, the Rep produced an annual season of contemporary, classic, and new plays, as well as a play development program with many world premieres. The company developed a collective of resident and visiting artists including Tony Award©, Emmy Award©, Academy Award©, and Pulitzer Prize winning actors, writers and designers.

The non-profit Festival Stage (2009-2015) was created to help establish a new arts center with performance, development, and arts education opportunities. The six year project was a LORT-level series of new plays, contemporary classics, and collaborations, among them projects synthesizing arts, education, and medicine.
