It is with great sadness that I share today news of my resignation from The Carnegie, effective immediately.
This may come as a shock to many of you. Although the timing of this decision has been regrettably sudden, it’s a move I’ve been considering for a long time.
My time at The Carnegie has seen both substantial challenge and deeply fulfilling moments. Any success we’ve enjoyed in developing the theatre program at The Carnegie is largely due to the efforts of my exceptional staff (Bleu, Brenda, Chickie, Greg, Eamon, and many others over the years) and all of the fabulously talented actors, musicians, directors, designers and technicians who have chosen (or been heavily coerced!) to take a chance on an up-and-coming operation for far less pay than they deserve. I am grateful for the opportunity given to me by The Carnegie’s leadership seven + years ago, and for all of the beautiful and rewarding relationships it has allowed me to create.
I don’t know what comes next for me, or The Carnegie’s plans for theatre programming. It is my earnest hope to stay in the area, and I’m actively looking for “the next big thing” and the best fit for my family.
I thank you for your support of The Carnegie over these many years, and I look forward to continuing our work together under new auspices in the future.
