Rebecca Taichman was the director of Familiar, Danai Gurira's comic drama at Playwrights Horizons about the generational and cultural clashes within a Zimbabwean-American family.
Taichman has also helmed Ruhl's plays at Classic Stage off-Broadway (Orlando) and the Woolly Mammoth in Washington, D.C. (The Clean House and Dead Man's Cell Phone), and she's directed multiple works by Theresa Rebeck (The Scene at New York's Second Stage and the umana Festival, Mauritius at Huntington Theatre in Boston) and David Adjmi (Marie Antoinette at Soho Rep, Evildoers at Yale Rep). Taichman has done a fair share of classics too, most notably four plays at the Shakespeare Theatre in D.C., where she is an affiliated artist: Taming of the Shrew, Twelfth Night, The Winter's Tale and Cymbeline* (the latter two were also produced at the McCarter Theatre in Princeton, N.J.).
Her portfolio additionally encompasses opera and musicals. In 2003, just three years out of Yale, she received a Barrymore Award--Philadelphia's top theater prize--for Outstanding Direction of a Musical, for the Prince Music Theater's world premiere (starring Raúl Esparza) of Green Violin, a klezmer-scored period piece about the Moscow State Jewish Theater for which Taichman co-wrote the book. In 2011 she directed another musical world premiere, coproduced by McCarter and La Jolla: Sleeping Beauty Wakes, penned by Rachel Sheinkin and GrooveLily. Taichman has directed She Loves Me at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and for Gotham Chamber Opera staged Rappaccini's Daughter in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and Dark Sisters, a new opera with a libretto by Stephen Karam and music by Nico Muhly (who would also score her Winter's Tale).
In 2017 she received a Tony Award for Best Director of a Play for her work on Indecent.
