The new Artistic Director for Virginia Rep is Nathaniel Shaw. (Click here for more about his background). Although his tenure doesn’t start til 7/1, he was recently in town and spent a few minutes talking about his new position, Virginia Rep, Richmond and his family.

 

There’s also some bonus Bruce! When I chatted with Bruce Miller before the opening of “Summer and Smoke” (here’s that interview), we also talked about his leaving the post of AD. His comments are below.

 

NOTE: This is different from the typical SIFTER video. Instead of one brief produced video, there are 13 excerpts from my interview with Nathaniel and 4 excerpts from my interview with Bruce. Click on each question for the video. There’s also a full-length version of each you’d prefer.

Is it Nathaniel or Nate? (:17)
