Joel Bassin has been named the new artistic director for Firehouse Theatre. He’s currently the chairman of theater at Hunter College and has been managing director of The Wooster Group, producing director of Tribeca Performing Arts Center and company manager for Mabou Mines (all New York City-based theater companies devoted to experimental, diverse and globally oriented drama). He was in town recently and we sat down for a chat.

NOTE: This is different from the typical SIFTER video. Instead of one brief produced video, there are 6 excerpts from our interview (click on each one for the video).

  1. What nice introduction to Joel Bassin. Thanks, Jerry.

  2. Nice interview, Jerry. Joel shows all signs of being a great addition to Richmond theatre, and an excellent choice for Firehouse. I’m looking forward to meeting him and being among the many who will welcome him to town.

  3. Sounds like a nice guy and all but will continue to pass on this place as long as its the same board led by the same poisonous person/people. Good luck.

  4. Thanks for this interview, Jerry. He seems to be a great addition to this town. Best of luck to Mr. Bassin! Hopefully the Board will do the right thing and step aside. Let growth happen. For everyone’s sake.
