With its three venues — the Cutler Majestic, the Paramount Mainstage, and the Jackie Liebergott Black Box — ArtsEmerson certainly dominates the Theater District, but its artistic reach goes far beyond the city. This year, executive director Rob Orchard landed the following: Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House, reimagined by Brooklyn company Mabou Mines; a musical about the Shakers called Angel Reapers, co-conceived by Pulitzer Prize and MacArthur grant winners; and The Speaker’s Progress, which used Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night as the basis for a satire about the Arab Spring. The organization’s biggest coup, though, was convincing Cambridge’s reclusive John Malkovich to star as a serial killer in The Infernal Comedy.
