September 10, 2012
Boston magazine named ArtsEmerson the Best Theater in Boston, recognizing the organization’s artistic reach beyond Boston. The publication cited the successes of Executive Director Rob Orchard. Among the productions mentioned were: Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House, reimagined by Brooklyn theater company Mabou Mines; a musical about the Shakers called Angel Reapers; and The Speaker’s Progress, which used Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night as the basis for a satire about the Arab Spring. In addition, ArtsEmerson secured actor John Malkovich to star as a serial killer in The Infernal Comedy.
