Theater director Nicholas Martin has left the William Morris Agency for Helen Merrill Ltd., where he is repped in all areas by Patrick Herold. Martin had been a client of WMA’s Gilbert Parker, who retired in December.
Martin is artistic director at Boston’s Huntington Theater Co. In New York, he helmed “Full Gallop,” “Fully Committed” and the Roundabout’s production of “The Rehearsal.”
His staging of “Hedda Gabler,” starring Kate Burton, will come in the fall to Broadway, where it will be produced by Randall L. Wreghitt, Harriet Leve and Gallin Prods. The much-acclaimed production originated with Sag Harbor’s Bay Street Theater, Williamstown Theater Festival and the Huntington Theater Co., which are also producing the Gotham venture.
