Jenny Gersten To Leave Williamstown Theatre Festival

Jenny Gersten, artistic director of Williamstown Theatre Festival -- the venerable summer theater program in the Massachusetts Berkshires -- will step down at the end of the year to become executive director of Friends of the Highline, the non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and re-use of an elevated railway that has become a renowned public space in New York City.  

While the search is under way for a new artistic director, WTF's 2014 summer season will remain under Gersten's artistic direction.

Gersten succeeded Nicholas Martin, who took over the institution following Roger Rees' three year tenure. Prior to that Michael Ritchie was its long-time producing director.
