Eileen Wiseman: “I’m here to help build support and excitement.” Contributed photo
New Haven’s Long Wharf Theatre has named Eileen Wiseman, a longtime leader at the Westport Arts Center, its new development director, effective immediately.

Wiseman, a Weston resident who joined the Long Wharf Theatre development staff in April, had spent the past eight years as the executive/artistic director of the Westport Arts Center, overseeing 60 programs a year including exhibitions, concerts, lectures, and literature and film programs.

“All my life I’ve been coming to this theater—-it is the place I learned to love live performance, the place that shaped my sense of what theater should be,” Wiseman said.

“Long Wharf Theatre has a strong sense of mission and the artistic and organizational confidence to use this crazy time we’re in to plot an even more interesting, vital path into the future.

Flying at the Levitt Image
Westport’s The Levitt Pavilion for the Performing Arts opened its 36th season tonight with a performance by The Flying Karamazov Brothers, a juggling and comedy troupe who have been performing since 1973. They learned their trade while performing as street artists in Santa Cruz, Calif., and take their name from the Fyodor Dostoevsky novel “The Brothers Karamazov” because they see similarities between themselves and the characters of the novel. None of them, however, is actually blood relatives. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for
