Oregon Shakespeare Fest exec exits

The Oregon Shakespeare Festival has announced that executive director Paul Nicholson is stepping down. Here’s a story about his departure from the Ashland Daily Tidings.

Nicholson has been the guy behind the business side of the operation for the past 17 years. Bill Rauch — the artistic head — remains in place.

Seattle Times theater critic Misha Berson recently reported that the festival is in fine shape, despite the fact that it’s indoor venue (the Angus Bowmer Theater) had to be suddenly closed for repairs earlier this year. Several productions were moved to a tent and, in true show biz fashion, the shows have gone on.
