Seattle Public Theater’s new managing director

Zoë Alexis Scott has been hired to lead Seattle Public Theater. She comes to SPT from  The Grand, an historic theater and nonprofit in Maine, where she was executive director from 2008-13. She’s a co-founder of  the West Marin Music Festival and the West Marin Children’s Chorus, and was executive director for the Baroque Arts Ensemble of San Francisco.

“Culture runs through our lives from birth to death,” Scott said in a news release, “and those singular experiences of watching a provocative live performance, discovering the well of humor or sorrow that connects us to each other and to the world … this is what makes theater one of the best things on earth.”

Up next at SPT: the Seattle premiere of “Broke-ology,” by Nathan Louis Jackson, in association with the Hansberry Project. The show opens Sept. 27.
