A fierce and passionate champion for Black theatre with more than 30 years dedicated to theatre in the Bay Area and across the nation, Margo is our first female Artistic Director. 



I am thrilled to assume this position now, during this dynamic, pivotal moment in our cultural history, as the nation turns its focus to Black lives. This is an extraordinary opportunity to reach new levels of participation and offer meaningful and compelling works that speak to the Black community’s issues, challenges, dreams, and accomplishments.”


Bay Area theatre titan Margo Hall is our new Artistic Director!


An award-winning actor, director, playwright, and educator, Hall has been a leading presence in national and local theatre communities for more than 30 years. The first female Artistic Director of our theatre named for the trailblazing Black female playwright of A Raisin in the Sun, Hall takes the helm at a moment where artists of color demand representation and change in the American Theatre. With a career dedicated to bringing the stories of people of color to life, Hall is committed to creating a safe space for fostering Black artists, particularly Black female and nonbinary artists who continue to be deeply underrepresented, as well as increasing society’s exposure to diverse perspectives.

"Margo Hall is an extraordinary Bay Area artist and visionary.  Since first meeting her many moons ago through Bay Area Playwrights Festival, I felt a kindred spirit and a trust in her as a director that she would fully protect the integrity of my work.  I'm thrilled to know that so many more artists will have the pleasure of working with her and being nurtured by her vision."
