Subject: Tygres Heart Shakespeare Company
Tygres Heart Shakespeare Company, in Portland, Oregon, hired Nancy
Doherty as its new Artistic Director. She was the Producing Artistic
Director of "Shakespeare in Delaware Park" in Buffalo, N.Y., and had
been with that company for 19 years.
Tygres Heart did a national search for an artistic director, which
included a posting on this list. That was the announcement she saw.
Thank you, Hardy! Many members of this list applied, and we hope we had
a chance to respond to each personally.
Tygres Heart Shakespeare Company, founded ten years ago by Jan Powell,
is the Pacific Northwest's only full-time theater dedicated exclusively
to producing the works of William Shakespeare. Our mission is to
produce ferociously good Shakespeare in an intimate setting; we are
resident in Portland's Winningstad Theater in the Portland Center for
the Performing Arts.
Our production of Romeo and Juliet (directed by Jon Kretzu) opens
January 13 and runs to February 20. On February 14 and 15 we will
present "The Mystery of the Sonnets," devised and performed by Keith
Scales. Nancy Doherty will be directing Macbeth starting April 13 and
running to May 21. Be consoled, Buffalo: a generous donor will buy a
ticket for any member of "Shakespeare in Delaware Park" who shows up in
Portland to see the show!
Next season will open in the fall of 2000 with Measure for Measure,
directed by Charles Marowitz. Mr. Marowitz is currently the Artistic
Director of the Malibu Stage. His career has spanned two continents.
He was a major collaborator with Peter Brook at the Royal Shakespeare
Company and ran the acclaimed The Open Space in London. He was also a
founding member of the LA Theater Center, and has written numerous books
The 2000-01 season continues with a production of Twelth Night, directed
by Jim Cox, and then Nancy Doherty will direct King Lear.
