Peter DuBois, associate director and producer at New York’s Public Theater, is expected to be named a.d. of Beantown’s Huntington Theater Company this week.
Dubois’ Gotham credits include “Richard II” with Peter Dinklage, David Grimm’s “Measure for Pleasure” and Bob Glaudini’s “Jack Goes Boating” for LAByrinth Theater company with Philip Seymour Hoffman.
He was previously a.d. of Perseverance Theater in Juneau, Alaska, where he took over from Molly Smith in 1998. Prior to Perseverance, he lived and worked in the Czech Republic where he directed and co-founded Asylum, a multi-national squat theater.
Also on the Huntington short list were helmers Mark Brokaw and Ethan McSweeney.
DuBois, 37, won the 2006 Stage Directors and Choreographers Foundation Callaway Award. Last summer he helmed Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa’s new play “Good Boys and True” at the O’Neill Theater Center in Waterford, Conn.
DuBois succeeds Nicholas Martin, whose tenure ends this spring. Martin will then take over the Williamstown Theatre Festival in the Massachusetts Berkshires.
