Stotts to leave when contract expires at year's end
Business New Haven08/08/2005
BNH
Michael Stotts, managing director of Long Wharf Theatre since January, 2003, announced August 3 that that he would leave the theater at the conclusion of his contract, which expires December 31.
Theater officials portrayed the decision as a 'mutual' one between Stotts, 44, and LWT's board of trustees.
Stotts did not return phone calls seeking comment as this edition of BNH went to press.However, in an interview with Hartford Courant entertainment reporter Frank Rizzo, Stotts cited 'clashes' with some board members, and said, 'There is a culture of governance that made it very difficult for a managing director to do what that person was hired to do.'
...
During Stotts' 32-month (to date) tenure in New Haven he has presided over what LWT acknowledges has been a 'challenging transition period' characterized by an administrative reorganization, significant staff turnover and financial travails.
The most significant development since Stotts arrived has been the decision to relocate from the rental space LWT has occupied since the 1960s to a new, $60 million purpose-built theater downtown - a move not all trustees initially supported.
With LWT Artistic Director Gordon Edelstein, Stotts produced a number of world premiere productions, among them Eliam Kraiem's Sixteen Wounded, which moved to Broadway last season, Julia Cho's BFE, which had a limited run at Playwrights Horizons this past spring, and new plays by Paula Vogel (The Long Christmas Ride Home) and Craig Lucas (Singing Forest).
...
Stotts will continue to oversee LWT's day-to-day operations including overseeing an audience research project, and continue to help develop the strategy for building the new downtown facility.
