Ever wondered what became of Cliff Redd?

The former, longtime director of the Shakespeare Festival of Dallas, the former executive director of the 500, Inc., the former executive director of the ArtCentre of Plano and the founder of Theatre Arlington left the area in 2004 — to become the executive director of the Long Center for the Performing Arts in Austin. 

Now he’s being lauded in Texas Monthly for completing the  rebuild of the old Palmer Auditorium, transforming it into a multi-venue culture center– an ambitious campaign that had nearly died: “Luckily for Austin, Fleming’s successor, executive director Cliff Redd, has helmed an impressive “the show must go on” campaign, and the beleaguered venue is finally making its public debut. The finished product may be a scaled-back version of the original vision-there are two theaters, not four, and the total construction costs were “only” $67 million-but what the Long Center lacks in size it more than makes up for in resourceful charm.”
