The Old Globe Resident Artists 2021

The Old Globe is pleased to announce the appointments of four Resident Artists to join the Globe’s artistic staff for a two-year residency. Patricia McGregor (Globe’s What You Are, Globe for All Tour of A Midsummer Night’s Dream), David Israel Reynoso (Globe’s The Tempest, Red Velvet, Barefoot in the Park), Delicia Turner Sonnenberg (Globe’s Skeleton Crew, coLAB production of Elizabeth Hobbs Keckley: From Slavery to Modiste), and James Vásquez (Globe’s American Mariachi, Tiny Beautiful Things, Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas!) will provide their artistic insights and counsel to Globe leadership. Each of these successful San Diego artists has a celebrated history of collaboration with The Old Globe. The artists will start at the Globe on April 1, 2021.

These four individuals will make a significant impact on the artistic life of The Old Globe as they contribute their voices, artistry, and perspectives to every area of the theatre’s artistic operations. They will be involved in the process of how plays are selected for production, helping to democratize the process of selecting plays and to center BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) works and artists in the life of The Old Globe. Resident Artists will attend Globe artistic staff meetings; read plays under consideration and share their opinions of them; weigh in on creative teams being assembled for productions that are under serious consideration; offer ideas for additional material to consider in the Globe’s programming; and introduce playwrights, directors, and designers to the Globe; and they are invited to submit projects on which they are primary creatives.

The Old Globe’s Resident Artist Program was made possible in part by Theatre Forward and the Bank of America ACTivate Awards.

Financial support for The Old Globe is provided by The City of San Diego.

The Theodor and Audrey Geisel Fund provides leadership support for The Old Globe’s year-round activities.
