The Next High-End Import

The Milwaukee Rep has announced its new Artistic Director Mark Clements. Here’s video of him talking in a big leather chair:



A British citizen, Clements has worked extensively both in the U.K. and the US. He comes to Milwaukee having served as Artistic Director of the Derby Playhouse in England. He’d also served as Associate Director for the Royal Theatre in Northampton. He’s filling a role that’s been served by Joseph Hanreddy since the early ‘90’s. Though his arrival probably won’t be announced larger-than-life on billboards everywhere the way Edo DeWaart’s was with the Milwaukee Symphony earlier this season, Clements is the next new face in high-end performing arts in Milwaukee. All eyes will be on Clements when the Milwaukee Rep announces the 2010-2011 season on the other side of winter.
