Shakespeare Theater exec leaves

Goldsborough to launch consulting firm

WASHINGTON — Nicholas T. Goldsborough, managing director of the Shakespeare Theater Company since 2002, will ankle the post in December to launch his own consulting firm. The D.C.-based firm will provide services to arts orgs and other nonprofits located on the West Coast and the D.C. area.

The move follows the debut this month of the theater’s new $89 million Harman Hall, a campaign headed by Goldsborough. The theater spokesperson said he will retain an affiliation as a member of its national council, a group that seeks to broaden the company’s reach.

Michael Kahn, the theater’s artistic director, praised Goldsborough for his leadership during the stressful planning and fund-raising period. Goldsborough also led efforts to take the troupe on tour, including perfs in Greece in 2003 and at the Royal Shakespeare Festival’s Complete Works Festival last year.

Prior to his arrival in Washington, Goldsborough served as exec veepee and chief operating officer of the Music Center in Los Angeles, where he headed funding of the Walt Disney Concert Hall and development of Music Center Dance, a program to present dance and ballet at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and other Music Center venues.

Goldsborough is the D.C. area’s second managing director to announce departure plans following major new construction. Arlington, Va.’s Signature Theater recently announced it would bid adieu to general manager Sam Sweet next month. Sweet led Signature’s campaign to relocate to a new $16 million complex last year and to increase the org’s budget from $1.8 million to $6 million.
