Our director line-up for next season is complete!
We’re so excited to announce that Juliette Carrillo will direct The Brothers Size by Tarell McCraney. Juliette was last here in 2007 for Eduardo Machado’s The Cook. She has directed all over the U.S., including the West Coast premiere of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize winner Anna in the Tropics by Nilo Cruz at South Coast Repertory, the world premiere of References to Salvador Dali Make Me Hot by Jose Rivera, also at South Coast Repertory, and the West Coast premiere of Sam Shepard’s Eyes For Consuela at the Magic in San Francisco.
She has directed for the Alliance Theatre, TheatreWorks, Laguna Playhouse, New Jersey Shakespeare Festival, Actor’s Theatre of Louisville and for the Mark Taper Forum’s New Work Festival, as well workshops in NY theatres such as New York Theatre Workshop, The Public, INTAR and The Women’s Project.
And in case you missed it, the first time, here are the rest of the directors, announced earlier…
Wilson Milam directs God of Carnage. The master of sharp, dark comedies, Wilson directed Glengarry Glen Ross this last season and The Seafarer the season before (he was also nominated for a Tony for Best Director for The Lietenant of Inishmore, which he helmed from London to Off-Broadway to Broadway).
Allison Narver directs Three Tall Women. Allison’s beautiful work was last seen here for Memory House in 2006, and around town with Seven Brides for Seven Brothers at the 5th Avenue, Eurydice and The Clean House at ACT, and Orange Flower Water at New Century Theatre.
Sheila Daniels takes the reigns for Dancing at Lughnasa. This is Sheila’s first time at the Rep, but we’ve been wanting to get her here, especially after seeing the masterful Electra at Seattle Shakes and A Streetcar Named Desire at Intiman.
Braden Abraham directs The K of D, an urban legend and This. Braden is the Rep’s own Associate Artistic Director, and he last directed Opus and Betrayal. He’s been working on The K of D through a couple of development incarnations, including taking it to the New York Fringe Festival last year.
Our own Artistic Director Jerry Manning re-imagines the contemporary classic Of Mice and Men. Jerry loves this piece, and is excited to work with some great local actors on it. You might have seen Jerry’s most recent work at the Rep, boom, in 2008.
Mike Daisey’s regular collaborator Jean-Michelle Gregory directs Mike’s new workThe Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs. If anyone knows how to make Mike’s amazingly funny, insightful works shine even more, it’s her.
