New boss at the National

Nick Starr has been appointed as executive director of the South Bank's National Theatre, taking over from Genista McIntosh.

Starr will join the NT in the spring, working first alongside current director Trevor Nunn and then his successor, Nicholas Hytner.

Starr is currently press officer at the National and has his own production company, Us Productions. He has also worked at the Almeida Theatre.

Starr says: "I'm truly thrilled. In Trevor Nunn I get to work with one of the world's greatest directors. With Nick Hytner, I am yoked with the best possible choice as Trevor's successor and I am taking over from someone I admire boundlessly."
