Seattle, WA – Seattle Repertory Theatre announced today that they have extended Artistic Director Jerry Manning’s current contract to June 30, 2017—a two-year extension.

“We are thrilled to offer this extension to Jerry; he has clearly earned it,” said Hal Strong, current Chairman of the Seattle Rep Board of Trustees.

This news is significant to Manning, of course, and to his board. For the rest of us, it's just more of the same—which is fine. The Rep hasn't taken a spectacular direction nor a terrible one under the reign of Jerry the Gentle. But they want you to know that his contract has been extended, so I'm posting about it.

As you were.
