National Journal American Theatre Names New Chief

American Theatre, the national journal chronicling nonprofit theater, has named Rob Weinert-Kendt its new editor in anticipation of the imminent departure of Jim O’Quinn, who’s served as editor-in-chief of the publication since it was founded in 1984.

Published by Theatre Communications Group, American Theatre comes out 10 times a year, with a focus on professional not-for-profit theaters and educational institutions. Weiner-Kendt will take over the top post July 1.

The new editor has been on staff at American Theatre for six years. He’s previously done stints at Back Stage West (of which he was founding editor-in-chief) and Theater Development Fund, and co-founded the review round-up site StageGrade. In addition to American Theatre, he also writes about the stage for the New York Times, among other publications.

Weiner-Kendt and O’Quinn will appear onstage together at the upcoming 2015 edition of TCG’s National Conference, this year held in Cleveland June 18-20. They’ll talk about the history of the magazine in one of the panels there.

O’Quinn plans to continue contributing to American Theatre after a planned relocation to New Orleans.
