Yale Hires A.D. From Center Stage

Stan Wojewodski Jr., artistic director of Baltimore’s Center Stage for the past 13 years, will succeed Lloyd Richards July 1 as dean of the Yale School of Drama and artistic director of the Yale Repertory Theater. His appointment is for an initial term of five years, as was Richards’.

Under Wojewodski, 42, Center Stage built a reputation as one of the country’s outstanding resident professional theaters. He’s directed numerous world premieres there and is about to go into rehearsal for the world preem of Eric Overmyer’s “The Heliotrope Bouquet by Scott Joplin & Louis Chauvin.”

Wojewodski has staged shows at the Seattle Repertory Theater, Guthrie Theater, Williamstown Theater Festival, San Diego’s Old Globe Theater, New York’s Hudson Guild Theater and Manhattan Theater Club, Berkshire Theater Festival, Santa Fe Festival Theater, Kenyon Festival Theater and American Stage Festival. He is a member of the theater panel of the National Endowment for the Arts.

Richards, who succeeded Yale Rep founder Robert Brustein in 1979, staged many productions at Yale that transferred to Broadway after being developed at other resident theaters. Most important among them were the works of August Wilson.
