Clifton Guterman Named NNPN Producer in Residence

Posted on June 17, 2015

AE is thrilled to announce that Clifton Guterman has been awarded a National New Play Network (NNPN) Producer Residency for the 2015-2016 season. The announcement was made at at NNPN's 2015 Annual Conference last weekend along with over $125,000 in other NNPN grants.

NNPN is the country's alliance of nonprofit theaters that champions the development, production, and continued life, of new plays of which Actor’s Express is a founding core member. The Producer in Residence program aims to revolutionize the way theaters support new plays by educating new leaders about collaboration, training early-career producers about successful models, and providing connections to alternative networks.

Says Artistic Director Freddie Ashley, “Clifton is the perfect person to join AE in this capacity. He has a long history with the theatre and is deeply invested, but is increasingly interested in producing and creating theatre in different ways. Given that AE played an influential role in Clifton’s early acting career, we are delighted to do so again with his more recent interest in producing and administration.”
