PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Barrington Stage Company has announced that Michele Weathers will assume the role of managing director of Barrington Stage Company beginning March 13.
Current Managing Director Tristan Wilson departs the company in May after the completion of the renovation of the theatre's new home at the Wolfson Center, 122 North St.
Weathers comes to Barrington Stage Company from PlayMakers Repertory Company, having recently served as the theatre's interim managing director under the leadership of Joseph Haj and Vivienne Benesch. In New York, she was the assistant general manager for the Off-Broadway production of "In The Heights" and also served on the management teams at Barrow Street Theatre for its production of Austin Pendleton's "Orson's Shadow" and at Stuart Thompson Productions on Adam Rapp's "Red Light Winter."
For 13 years, Weathers served as the associate producer for North Carolina Theatre working closely with its founder, DeAnn S. Jones. She has held leadership positions at Theatre Raleigh and Carolina Ballet.
"I am honored and thrilled to join the Barrington Stage family and humbled to work alongside Julianne Boyd, the staff and Board of Directors for the continued success and growth of the theater," Weathers said. "Barrington Stage Company's rich history of artistic excellence, new work development, arts education and community engagement is inspirational. I look forward to contributing meaningfully as Barrington Stage enters into the next phase of its journey."
"I am looking forward to partnering with Michele as we continue our growth in serving the community and doing top-notch plays and musicals. I also want to thank Tristan for an amazing nine years of dedication to our theatre and to the community," said Julianne Boyd, artistic director.
