Ken Stein, executive director Austin Theatre Alliance, the organization that manages the Paramount and State theaters, has announced that he will depart the organization in June of this year.
Stein said he would be relocating to Dallas with his family for personal reasons. He said he will stay on through the end of the current subscription season and help ease the transition for a new director.
