Yale Rep taps Bundy.

SOUTHBURY, Conn. James Bundy has been named dean of the Yale School of Drama and artistic director of the Yale Repertory Theater in New Haven, Conn.

A 1995 MFA directing graduate of the Drama School who has been artistic director of Cleveland's Great Lakes Theater Festival since '98 and is adjunct professor of theater at Case Western Reserve U., Bundy begins his five-year term July 1.

His selection comes after a far-ranging two-year search that necessitated extending the reign of current dean and Rep a.d. Stan Wojewodski Jr.

"Mr. Bundy is, in the view of all who have worked with him in various settings, an extraordinary leader," said Yale prexy Richard C. Levin. "His keen intelligence, his willingness to listen and his quiet self-confidence mark him as capable of taking the Drama School and the Yale Repertory Theater to new heights of excellence."
