John Miller-Stephany has been named producing artistic director of Arkansas Repertory Theatre to succeed Bob Hupp, who's moved to a job in Syracuse.

He's expected to begin work in October.

A news release quotes Rep Board Chair Brian Bush: 

“John Miller-Stephany has worked at some of the most significant theatres in the country. He is without a doubt the right leader for our organization at this point in our history. His leadership ensures a bright future for The Rep.”
Miller-Stephany said he was pleased to be joining "one of the most vibrant cultural organizations in Arkansas."

His background: 

From 1996 to 2015, he was Artistic Administrator and Associate Artistic Director of The Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, Minn. From 1989 to 1996, he was Associate Producer of The Acting Company in New York City.

The Guthrie brought in a new artistic director in 2015. New director Joseph Haj brought a new artistic staff. Since that time, Miller-Stephany has been free-lancing, work that included a successful run of The Music Man at the Guthrie.
