Allyn Burrows: Artistic Director Shakespeare and Company

allynmagesBob and I were delighted to talk with Allyn Burrows about his new job as Artistic Director of Shakespeare and Company. We enjoyed interviewing him this past summer when he was acting in Or, a delightful play about the playwright Aphra Behn. We also have fond memories of seeing him in the early days of Shakespeare and Company in Edith Wharton plays at the Mount as well as in Shakespeare productions. We were impressed and engaged by his performance as King John when he returned to the company after having been away for a while.

During his time away from the company, Allyn  was busy. He  acted in film and television as well as on stage where he won an Eliot Norton Award for acting in 2006.   He was Artistic Director of  the Boston-area Actors’ Shakespeare Project for seven years. This is Shakespeare and Company’s 40th season, an important landmark. Allyn shared his vision for the company as it continues its unique contribution to theatre with its  outstanding productions of Shakespeare and contemporary plays and its creative educational  and training programs.
