Longtime managing director of Yale Rep to step down

Victoria Nolan, deputy dean of Yale School of Drama, managing director of Yale Repertory Theatre, and professor in the practice of theater management, will step down from those duties on June 30, 2020, in order to work on other projects and spend more time with her family. Nolan arrived at Yale in 1993. When she steps down at the end of June, she will have been managing director of Yale Rep through more than 150 productions and for exactly half of the theater’s 54-year history. 

“The greatest joy of my time at Yale has been mentoring the extraordinarily talented students from whom I have learned every single day. To count them among the most cherished and trusted colleagues I have had the privilege to work alongside in the field is icing on a very rich cake,” Nolan said. 

James Bundy ’95MFA, dean of Yale School of Drama and artistic director of Yale Repertory Theatre, added, “Victoria Nolan will always make herself available to meet with students in all disciplines to discuss their concerns and questions about the profession. But she has understandably focused with particular intensity on the training of theater managers, promoting the habits of mind that have enabled so many of them to fulfill their potential in pivotal leadership roles across the country: in this arena, her legacy and influence will last for generations to come.”
