Official exits at Juilliard

Kahn takes leave of post

Michael Kahn, the director of the Juilliard School Drama Division, will step down from his post at the end of the academic year.

Also artistic director of the Shakespeare Theater Company in Washington, D.C., he ankles the post to focus on the construction of that company’s new 800-seat theater.

During Kahn’s tenure in the position, which he assumed in 1992, the division created a program for playwrights (in 1993) and another for directors (in 1995). A Juilliard faculty member since the school opened in 1968, he will continue to teach his third-year acting class.

Juilliard prexy Joseph W. Polisi chairs the search for Kahn’s replacement.
