Shakespeare and Company in Lenox, Massachusetts has named a new artistic director after a period of leadership change.The theater company on Thursday announced that Allyn Burrows will take on the role full-time in January. Burrows was with the company from 1989 to 2006 as an actor and board member. Since 2010 he’s been Artistic Director of Actors’ Shakespeare Project in Boston.

“I’d like us to think about taking some of our work down to New York,” Burrows said. “Think about generating work in New York where we bring it up to Shakespeare & Company. And the same is true - forming partnerships in Boston.”

Burrows takes over for interim directors Ariel Bock and Jonathan Croy, who will be staying with the company. In September 2014, Rick Dildine started as executive director; two months later, a founding member left the company. Dildine abruptly left in March 2015 and days later three board members resigned.
