The Woman in Charge

PlayMakers Repertory Company has made a brilliant choice for its new Producing Artistic Director: Vivienne Benesch. Regular PRC attendees will remember her for her delicate direction of last year’s beautiful Love Alone. She has also directed Red, and In the Next Room (the vibrator play) for the company. Benesch has led the Chautauqua Theatre Company for 12 years, and has taught at Juillard and her alma mater, NYU. She will begin at PlayMakers in January, 2016, in time to work up the 16-17 season. We can quit crying over Joseph Haj’s departure now.
