As founding artistic director of Red Bull Theater, a company that performs at the Lucille Lortel Theatre in the West Village and draws its name from a London playhouse that was created around 1600, JESSE BERGER has adapted and produced such Jacobean mainstays as Edward II, Pericles, The Revenger’s Tragedy, Volpone, The Witch of Edmonton, and Women Beware Women. His scripts for two of these classics have been published by Dramatists Play Service. Mr. Berger has worked with such actors as F. Murray Abraham, Elizabeth Ashley, Michael Learned, Kelly McGillis, and Patrick Stewart, and his efforts have taken him to such prestigious settings as the Denver Theatre Center, the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego, Shakespeare’s Globe in London, and the Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington. He has taught at the American Academy of Dramatic Art, the Juilliard School of Drama, NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, and the Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Academy for Classical Acting. During his time in the Nation’s Capital, he won a Helen Hayes Award for his direction of Marat/Sade
