Playwrights’ Center names new director


The Playwrights’ Center’s new Producing Artistic Director Jeremy Cohen

After an extensive search that required starting over from ground zero, the Playwrights’ Center has found itself a new Producing Artistic Director in Jeremy B. Cohen.

Cohen comes to Minneapolis from Hartford, where he’s served as the Director of New Play Development at Hartford Stage. Previous to that he started Chicago’s Naked Eye Theatre Company, where he developed and directed 20 new works.

Cohen replaces former Producing Artistic Director Polly Carl, who left the Playwrights’ Center to become the Director of Artistic Development at Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago.

The Playwrights’ Center, based in Minneapolis, supports playwrights and the development of new plays across the country.
