Courtney O’Connor Named Associate Artistic Director

The Lyric Stage Company of Boston’s Producing Artistic Director, Spiro Veloudos, Managing Director, Matt Chapuran, and its Board of Directors today announced that they have named Courtney O’Connor as the company’s new Associate Artistic Director.  She assumed her full-time duties at the Lyric Stage on July 9, 2018

Spiro Veloudos commented on Courtney’s appointment:  “Courtney and I have been friends for some time (it’s been so long, I don’t event want to say).  She has directed a number of plays at the Lyric Stage and throughout Boston, and was my associate director for our production of Nicholas Nickleby, parts 1 & 2.  With 75 applications for this position, the choice was anything but easy. But Courtney’s background in theatre production, administration, and education made her the logical choice.”

Matt Chapuran added: “I fondly recall Courtney’s production of Sin at the Coyote Theatre, produced back when we were all much younger. She’s lost none of her vibrancy and wit, and shares our commitment to local talent.”

And Courtney O’Connor wrote: “The Lyric Stage has been an artistic home to me as a director here in Boston — a place that has challenged and supported me like no other. And as I have grown during that time, the Lyric Stage has also grown and expanded greatly. With their new programs and partnerships, the continuing deep commitment to supporting local artists, and the dedicated and vibrant staff, the Lyric Stage is an invigorating and thriving company. I am thrilled to be joining in this new role, and look forward to discovering what we can create as we grow together.”
