Janice L Blixt
The Artistic Director of the Michigan Shakespeare Festival since 2010, Janice L Blixt has become the state’s most award-winning director/producer. In addition to bold stagings of Shakespeare from Hamlet to Measure For Measure, Blixt has challenged herself to produce new versions of classic stories, including adaptations of Chekhov's The Seagull and Aphra Behn's The Rover, Karen Tarjan's adaptation of Michael Shaara's novel The Killer Angels, and award-winning productions of Wilde and Shaw.
A graduate of the Hilberry Theater's MFA program, Blixt is married to long-time MSF Artistic Associate, Author, and Fight Director David Blixt, whom she met at the Festival in 1997 when they played Kate and Petruchio in The Taming of the Shrew. They are the parents of Dashiell and Evelyn.
