Live Arts announces new Artistic Director

Live Arts announced today that its Board of Directors has completed its search for a new Artistic Director, settling on Julie Hamberg as the theater’s artistic leader.

Hamberg is a theater veteran, having served in a variety of capacities at arts organizations in Ann Arbor, New York City. She was most recently as Interim Producing Director at Southern Rep in New Orleans. She has brought 75 new plays to the stage, according to a release. She will relocate with her husband, a playwright, from Louisville, Kentucky, to begin in September.

Hamberg fills a seven-month personnel void left by Satch Huizenga, the quiet circumstances of whose resignation upset some members of the theater’s large community of volunteers.

Julie Hamberg begins in September.
