"July marks the 30th year of my time here in Cambridge as well as my 40th with the organization going back to the Yale years. Thanks to the quality of the Board, staff, Diane's vision, and Harvard's increased commitment and interest in all the arts, the A.R.T.'s future is in excellent hands," Orchard said in a letter to the A.R.T. board.
In a statement, Paulus commented, "Rob has been an esteemed and extremely valued colleague of mine since my arrival. He and I have been in close contact about his decision to retire early, and I am very grateful that he has agreed to stay on as a Special Advisor to me in launching my first season."
