Interim number one: Vivian Phillips, a former Paul Schell spokesperson and co-director of the Hansberry Project (“a professional black theatre company dedicated to the artistic exploration of African American life, history and culture”), has been appointed interim director at Langston Hughes Performing Arts Center.
Jackie Moscou, the former (maybe former?) director of LHPAC is still on administrative leave (as she has been for months) and is still the subject of a mysterious investigation (as she has been for months). Still, nobody seems to know anything about anything.
Interim number two: Kevin Maifeld, former managing director at Seattle Children’s Theater, has been appointed interim managing director at Intiman Theatre while its board looks for someone to replace Laura Penn, the outgoing managing director. The search for Penn’s replacement is led by Greg Kandel, the man who led the national search that resulted in the hiring of Bart Sher—and whose name is an anagram for “darn keg leg.”
