The Old Globe's Board of Directors has announced a dual leadership structure and has appointed Michael G. Murphy as Managing Director. Murphy was named Interim Managing Director in October 2011 after the resignation of CEO/Executive Producer Louis G. Spisto, who oversaw both the artistic and administrative operations of the theatre. Murphy has been the General Manager at The Old Globe since 2003, overseeing the Production, Education, Human Resources, Information Technology and Facilities Departments, as well as Front of House operations.
In accepting the appointment Michael G. Murphy commented, "I'm honored to continue to work with the extraordinarily talented staff of The Old Globe. I look forward to joining with a new Artistic Director to build upon the legacy of great theatre developed by Craig Noel, Jack O'Brien, Tom Hall and Lou Spisto. I am fortunate to live and work in a community that understands the value of the arts and I am grateful for the continued support of our amazing audiences, board of directors, volunteers and generous donors."
A nationwide search is being held to identify an Artistic Director for the company. A successful candidate is expected to be announced by late Summer/Fall of 2012 with residency at the theatre to commence as soon thereafter as practical.
