Classic Stage Company announced that Tony Award-winning director John Doyle will join the company for its 2013-14 season as an associate director. Doyle, who directed CSC's production of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's musical Passion, will develop his own projects for the off-Broadway theater company. Doyle will also work with artistic director Brian Kulick on season planning and other artistic programming.
"I am thrilled to have been invited by Classic Stage Company to become an Associate Director with the company. Directing Passion at this wonderful venue was a true pleasure and it is so exciting to have the opportunity to make an on-going input into the work of CSC," Doyle said in a statement. "I look forward to spending some time each season with Brian Kulick and his terrific staff."
Doyle won the 2006 Direction of a Musical Tony Award for his production of Sondheim's Sweeney Todd. He also received a nod in 2007 for Company. Now in its 45th anniversary season, CSC is an award-winning off-Broadway theater organization committed to re-imaging the classical repertory for a contemporary American audience.
