The Old Globe and CEO and Executive Producer, Lou Spisto, is stepping down after nine years to work independently as a producer.
“We are saddened by Lou's decision to leave after nine years of tremendous leadership and service,” said Board Chair Harold W. Fuson, Jr.
Spisto produced nearly 150 plays and musicals.
“During Lou’s nine years The Old Globe grew to new heights, both financially and artistically,” said Fuson.
Spisto says he’s proud of The Old Globe’s accomplishments.
“Now is the time to work on my other passions. Over the past three years there have been significant projects that were offered, apart from the Globe, that I would now like to pursue. I remain a part of the Globe family and offer to be of service throughout all my days,” said Spisto.
The Old Globe has appointed Michael G. Murphy as Interim Managing Director.
