The 2014 season of Summer Lyric Theatre at Tulane University will long be remembered, not only for the outstanding performances of Les Misérables, A Chorus Line and Cabaret, but as the final year that Summer Lyric Theatre was led by artistic director B. Michael Howard. Recently, Howard announced his decision to step down as artistic director of the musical theater company, although he will retain his role as a tenured member of the Newcomb Music Department.

C. Leonard Raybon, chair of the Newcomb Department of Music, will serve as interim artistic director, overseeing the 2015 season. The School of Liberal Arts will begin a national search for a new artistic director, who will join Tulane in summer 2015
