Gene David Kirk, who recently stepped down as Artistic Director of the Jermyn Street Theatre after the succcesful revival of Boy Meets Boy, has released the following statement:
"Because of my other directing and producing commitments in 2013, I have decided not to take on the role of Executive Director at Jermyn Street Theatre, as previously announced. I will oversee the future life of productions that I originated there, either as producer or director (these include All That Fall, The Two-Character Play, Mother Adam and Boy Meets Boy). Though no longer officially involved, I will always have the theatre's best interests at heart and I look forward to spreading the good news as it builds on the reputation for artistic excellence and daring that it has acquired during the last four years."
Gene's period at the Jermyn Street Theatre saw it develop an enviable reputation for exciting revivals, new works and UK stage premieres.
