Andy Donald Appointed New Associate Artistic Director at ACT
June 10, 2016
Theatre Management & Producing alumnus Andy Donald ’10 was appointed the new associate artistic director at American Conservatory Theater (ACT), where he will commission and develop new work and assume producing and presenting responsibilities within the artistic department.
Donald “is an experienced teacher, and has incredible knowledge of the field,” Artistic Director Carey Perloff said, according to BroadwayWorld.com. “His deep connection to artists of many disciplines and his appetite to work on multiple stages as well as to teach and engage with our Conservatory made him a natural fit for A.C.T.”
Donald had previously served as artistic director of Naked Angels in New York City, where he was responsible for the company’s merger with the New School for Drama. Before Naked Angels, he worked as a freelance director and served as producing associate at the Public Theater and Second Stage Theatre, in pilot development at ABC and HBO, and as the founding artistic director of the Los Angeles–based Charlie B. Theater Company.
