Joseph Haj named Guthrie's new artistic director


Joseph Haj — the producing artistic director at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s theater company in residence — has been named the Guthrie Theater’s new artistic director.

Haj, one of a few Arab-American artistic directors in the country, will succeed Joe Dowling in the position and start the job in July. Guthrie Board Chair Lee Skold and search committee chair Patricia Simmons announced the news Tuesday after a year-long search.
