Craig Noel, Founding Director of The Old Globe, died at his home in San Diego of natural causes on April 3.  He was 94 years old.  Craig was a significant figure in the development of the American theater, having led the Globe from its earliest days as a community organization to an internationally renowned institution.  Over his more than 70-year career at the Globe, he directed more than 200 works, produced an additional 270 productions and created innovative and influential theater programs.  In 2007, Craig received the National Medal of Arts, the nation's highest honor for artistic excellence, by President George W. Bush in a ceremony at the White House.
