Chris Jones to head NCI

Chris Jones, new NCI head

The O’Neill Theater Center’s search for a new director of the National Critics Institute has selected Chris Jones. For 15 years theater critic for the Chicago Tribune (and before that, Variety), Chris chairs ATCA’s committee on the regional theater Tony. He succeeds Dan Sullivan, previously critic at the Los Angeles Times, who in turn succeeded the late Ernie Schier, NCI founder and previously critic at the Philadelphia Bulletin; both were also founders of ATCA. To complete the circle, the O’Neill was the birthplace of ATCA, which underwrites an NCI scholarship each summer.
