Morgan Green is a theater director and co-founder of New Saloon (newsaloon.org), a Brooklyn-based experimental theater company. She makes theater primarily to hear people laugh and occasionally to stir and distress them. Most recently she caused an upset by updating The Music Man, a beloved old-school musical with sweet tunes and tone-deaf politics. This was part of her “director-driven” season at The Sharon Playhouse where she also directed Caryl Churchill’s spooky one-act, Far Away, as well as the latest and greatest version of New Saloon’s MINOR CHARACTER, an experimental multi-translation adaptation of Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya. Morgan frequently collaborates with playwrights Sarah DeLappe (The Wolves), Sarah Einspanier (I LOVE SEAN), Milo Cramer (Cute Activist), and choreographer Ani Taj (The Dance Cartel).  Morgan was the Associate Director for Amelie, A New Musical on Broadway directed by Pam MacKinnon. She is a New Georges Affiliated Artist, an alumni of the Lincoln Center Director’s Lab and Williamstown Theater Festival Directing Core, and a 2014-2015 Bob Moss Directing Resident at Playwrights Horizons.
