Asolo Rep Producing Artistic Director and Managing Director Jointly Announce Retirement
Asolo Repertory Theatre’s producing artistic director Michael Donald Edwards and managing director Linda DiGabriele have announced their retirement at the conclusion of their current contracts, which end in June of 2023. Both Edwards and DiGabriele were extended opportunities to renew their contracts but together determined it was the right time to step down and allow new leadership to take the helm.
Their joint departure was planned to allow a new executive team to enter together and form a fresh partnership that will continue building on Asolo Rep’s 63-year history. When they retire, Edwards will have served the organization for 18 years and DiGabriele for 50 years.
Asolo Rep’s board of directors is assembling a search committee and will begin a national search for both positions in the coming months.
