Diane Paulus 84Artistic Director of the American Repertory Theater

Diane Paulus ’84 is the artistic director of the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, MA. She is the 2013 recipient of the Tony Award for Best Director of a Musical (Pippin) and was named to Time’s annual list of the 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2014. 

Her advice to budding Brearley artists today is quite simple. “The more you learn, the more you stretch yourself, the more you grow as a person, the more you see, the more you study, all of these things are going to make you a deeper and better artist,” she says. “Follow your heart; start to develop what interests you. A life in art is about plugging into your own personal passions. Find your obsessions. Develop your own personal inquiry and if you develop that, it doesn’t matter if you have bumps in the road or ups and downs because it’s all part of the journey.”
