Kristin Larsen moves to Stage 773
Remy Bumppo Theatre Company executive director Kristin Larsen will leave her position to take the same title at Stage 773, the two companies jointly announced today. Larsen has served as Remy Bumppo's executive director since 2002.
The executive director position is newly created at Stage 773, which took over operation of the former Theatre Building Chicago in 2010 and completed renovations on the Belmont Avenue building last year, converting the complex from three performing venues to four. In a statement, Larsen said she was "attracted to the excitement of being in a position to work with a variety of artists and genres, both those produced by Stage 773 and those of visiting companies." She'll begin work at Stage 773 in February; Remy Bumppo says it will take its time before deciding whether to search for a replacement.
