Jonathan fox
Executive Director of Ensemble Theatre Company, Santa Barbara's resident professional company.

Since Jonathan Fox took over directorship of Ensemble Theater after the late Robert Grand Weiss' retirement in 2006, he's injected a lot of daring and controversy into Santa Barbara's theater scene. Two years ago he oversaw the company's grand move from the cozy but aging Alhecama Theatre to the lovely remodeled New Vic. That in turn has allowed him to think bigger and bolder, mixing in musicals and huge sets alongside the personal and intimate productions that people associate with the company.

In this hour-long chat we talk about his beginnings, his time working in software development, and whether he's figured out what Santa Barbara audiences really want. There's even an anecdote about meeting Bruce Springsteen.

If you have not seen a show at The New Vic, you can check out Ensemble's current and upcoming seasons here. Or follow them on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram
