A change in leadership at Nora as founder departs

CAMBRIDGE — The Nora Theatre Company has named Lee Mikeska Gardner its new artistic director after a quarter of a century under founder Mary C. “Mimi” Huntington.

“I was immediately grabbed by the part of the mission that says, we do theater with a feminine voice that jostles minds and hearts. It sort of spoke to me,” Gardner says. “I think I have the skills to take not just the Nora but the Central Square Theater in [the direction] they want to grow.”
