Playbill News: Alabama Shakespeare Theatre Names Sherman New Artistic Director

The Alabama Shakespeare Festival announced June 9 that Geoffrey Sherman will join the Montgomery-based company as producing artistic director.

Over the past decade, British-born Sherman has made Michigan his home, serving as artistic director of Meadow Brook Theatre in Rochester and then free-lancing before becoming artistic director of BoarsHead Theatre in Lansing.

ASF board chairman Young Boozer said in a statement, "After a thorough search process which brought in over 40 applicants from all over the nation, we are happy to say that in Geoffrey Sherman we have found the best choice for ASF. We look forward to a fresh new era under his leadership, built upon the legacy of Kent Thompson."
