Seven years into his transformative tenure as American Theater Company's artistic director, during which he pissed off many longstanding ensemble members (who left to re-form under their original name, American Blues Theater) but expanded a commitment to diversity and new work onstage, PJ Paparelli was killed in an automobile accident in May 2015. Interim artistic director Bonnie Metzgar is guiding ATC into its 31st season as the search goes on for a permanent appointee. We can only hope the new AD continues the trajectory of vital work Paparelli led.
