Lars Jan given Sherwood Award

Stage director receives grant for $10,000

The Richard E. Sherwood Award, given annually to early career Los Angeles theater artists by the Center Theater Group, has granted $10,000 to director Lars Jan, whose work focuses on integrating new technology with physical performance.

An artist-in-residence in 2005 at Kabul University in Afghanistan, Jan will be working with CTG's master directors during the upcoming theater season.

The award was created to honor Richard E. Sherwood, a CTG board member from 1980 until his death in 1993.
