Pakenham to Donmar exec producer

Producer to work with a.d. Josie Rourke

Kate Pakenham, producer at London’s Old Vic theater, has been appointed exec producer at the Donmar Warehouse.

Pakenham will join the 250-seat Covent Garden theater on Jan. 30, one month after Josie Rourke formally takes over as a.d. from exiting Michael Grandage.

As Old Vic producer for a.d. Kevin Spacey, Pakenham has produced for Sam Mendes’ trans-Atlantic company the Bridge Project and produced “The Norman Conquests,” which transferred to Broadway, winning the Tony for best revival.

She previously directed and produced factual TV for the BBC, ITV and Channel 4.

Pakenham replaces Nick Giles, who ankled the Donmar after six months on July 31. He was recently appointed chief exec of Shoreditch Town Hall, a mixed events venue in East London.
