LONDON (AP) — Shakespeare's Globe — London's open-air, Elizabethan-style playhouse — has appointed Olivier Award-winning actress Michelle Terry as its new artistic director.

The London theater says Terry will take up the post in April 2018. She replaces Emma Rice, who is leaving early after claiming a lack of support from the company's board.

Terry's roles at the Globe include Rosalind in "As You Like It" and Titania in "A Midsummer Night's Dream." She has also performed for Britain's National Theatre and the Royal Shakespeare Company, and played the lead in "Henry V" at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre.

Terry said Monday she was looking forward to helping artists and audiences "reclaim and rediscover" the work of Shakespeare and his contemporaries, as well as new writers.
