On Mon., Sept. 28 from 4–5:30 p.m., Jonathan Fox of Ensemble Theatre Company will be at Antioch University for an interactive conversation. The upcoming lecture is part of the Antioch in Conversation series, designed to foster public engagement about the issues and inspirations that shape our community, society, and world.
Fox, the Executive Director of the Ensemble Theatre Company and the director of its upcoming production of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, will speak and answer questions at AUSB’s downtown campus, 602 Anacapa St.
“The Ensemble is all about bringing adventuresome, thought-provoking, professional theater to Santa Barbara,” Fox said. “The more we get the message out, the better we’ll be able to fulfill our mission. Antioch University Santa Barbara presents a perfect downtown venue to discuss our own regional theater and others around the country.”
Fox has directed almost 20 productions for Ensemble, Opera Santa Barbara’s 2014 production of The Consul at the Granada Theatre, and several European productions. Before joining Ensemble Theatre Company, he spent 12 years with Two River Theater Company in New Jersey, where he served as managing director for 5 years before becoming its artistic director. He has received critical acclaim in The New York Times, Variety, The Los Angeles Times and other publications, and is the recipient of the prestigious Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Fellowship.
