African-American Shakespeare Company’s New A.D. Is…

…L. Peter Callender, who you may know from everything. Over 25 plays at CalShakes. Off-Broadway. Broadway. Theaters around the country.

And, starting May of 2010, artistic director of African-American Shakes. Very exciting to have one of the best Shakespearean actors on the West Coast leading an entire company!

Meanwhile, before he officially takes over, their 15th anniversary season offers two shows: a “dazzling, soulful holiday production” of Cinderella from Dec 10-27 and Othello from March 12-28. They’re doing a special season preview event of the two shows soonish, too.
