Long Wharf Managing Director Quits

Michael Stotts is leaving as managing director of New Haven’s Long Wharf Theatre because of conflicts with the theatre’s board. Stotts declined to detail the conflicts other than to say there were “clashes between me and some board members. There is a culture of governance that made it very difficult for a managing director to do what that person was hired to do. I’ve been increasingly frustrated with these differences in the last few months and so it was time for us to part ways.”
