New Repertory Theatre names Petosa as artistic director

Eight months after Kate Warner abruptly resigned as artistic director, Watertown’s New Repertory Theatre has settled on a successor: Jim Petosa, the longtime director of the School of Theatre at Boston University’s College of Fine Arts.

In an interview yesterday, Petosa said he will accept a three-year contract with New Rep, beginning Aug. 1. He plans to retain his BU post, which he has held since 2002 while directing roughly 60 productions, including three at New Rep in the past three years. (He helmed the theater’s final production of 2011, Jeffrey Hatcher’s “Three Viewings.’’)
