Chicago's About Face Theatre has hired Andrew Volkoff, who spend five years as associate artistic director of the Barrington Stage Company in Massachusetts, as its new artistic director.

Volkoff also has worked at the Genesius Theatre Group in New York and at the Hangar Theatre Lab.

At About Face, an itinerent Chicago company that focuses on plays dealing with gender and sexual identity, Volkoff succeeds Bonnie Metzgar, who announced her departure last fall.
