New AD for Oregon Shakes

Bill Rauch has been named as the new Artistic Director of the mighty Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, OR.

Considering Rauch is one of the co-founders of the innovative community-based company Cornerstone Theater, this is quite an interesting move, and an encouraging (we hope) example of the cross-pollination of mainstream and edgier theatre. Ashland is a pretty "traditional" scene, so it will be interesting to see what Rauch brings.
