Jackie Nichols, the founder of Playhouse on the Square, has retired. The theater board has named Michael Detroit as the new executive producer of the 49-year-old organization that includes Circuit Playhouse and Evergreen Theatre.

Detroit has been interim executive producer since January when Nichols took a leave of absence while the board investigated allegations of sexual misconduct made in December.

Nichols denied any wrongdoing and the theater board hired the law firm Burch, Porter & Johnson PLLC to investigate.

Nichols makes no reference to that in his letter of resignation dated Monday, March 12, which was accepted later that same day by the board.

Nichols said in the letter that he intends to “devote my full energies and attention to consulting for the arts and nonprofit sectors.”
