Masterson to Leave Actors Theatre

Artistic Director Marc Masterson is leaving Actors Theatre of Louisville in September. Masterson will become artistic director at South Coast Repertory, a regional theater in Costa Mesa, California. The companies made a joint announcement last night.

Masterson has been at Actors for 11 seasons, and he’ll stay in Louisville through the end of this year’s Humana Festival of New American Plays in April. The theatre company will begin a national search to replace him soon.
