Nagle Jackson
NAGLE JACKSON has directed at major theaters throughout the U.S. and on Broadway, (The Utter Glory Of Morrissey Hall, starring Celeste Holm, Mark Hellinger Theater, 1979) in Europe and was the first American ever invited to direct in the Soviet Union. He served as Artistic Director of both the Milwaukee Repertory Theatre (1970-76) and the Tony Award winning McCarter Theatre, Princeton (1979-90). He stepped down from the McCarter to pursue his dual career as playwright and director. His play, Opera Comique, debuted at A.C.T., San Francisco and then played the Kennedy Center with a cast including Eli Wallach, Ann Jackson and Brian Beford under Mr. Jackson's direction. His play, The Elevation of Thieves was awarded the $150,000 Onassis Foundation International Playwright's award, presented to Jackson by the president of Greece. Seven of his plays have been published by Dramatists Play Service and are regularly presented both here and, in translation, abroad. Mr. Jackson resides in Princeton Junction, NJ with his wife, Sandy. He was a Fulbright Fellow for theatrical studies in Paris, and holds an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from Whitman College.
