New audience taps Rosenblum

Company to look for new theater, expand prods.

M. Edgar Rosenblum, a longtime executive director of the Long Wharf Theater, has been named executive director of the Theater for a New Audience.

For many years, the not-for-profit Theater for a New Audience has rented performance space, most recently from the American Place Theater. Under Rosenblum in his newly created position, company will look for a permanent theater and expand the number of its annual productions. TFANA enjoyed a particularly successful 1999-2000 season, with much-acclaimed productions of Shakespeare’s “King John,” directed by Karin Coonrod, and Harley Granville Barker’s “Waste,” directed by Bartlett Sher.

In its upcoming season, Robert Woodruff directs a production of Edward Bond’s “Saved,” and Peter Hall makes his Off Broadway directorial debut with Shakespeare’s “Troilus and Cressida.”

Both plays will be staged at the American Place Theater, which will become the Laura Pels Theater when the Roundabout Theater Co. takes control of the space in 2002.
