New York’s Epic Theatre Ensemble announced yesterday that Zak Berkman will be departing the theatre company to become Associate Artistic Director at People’s Light & Theatre Company, one of Pennsylvania’s largest non-profit theatres. Berkman will shift to People’s Light in September 2011. In the interim he will work with Epic co-founders, Melissa Friedman, Ron Russell and James Wallert to oversee the transition. Berkman will also remain on Epic’s Board of Directors.
Under Berkman’s ten year tenure as Executive Director of Artistic Programming at Epic Theatre Ensemble, the company has developed and produced the Off-Broadway premieres of numerous award winning new plays including Sarah Ruhl’s Passion Play, Nilaja Sun’s No Child…, Judith Thompson’s Palace of the End and Hannah and Martin by Kate Fodor.
