New York’s famed Actors Studio is looking for a new artistic director after months of turmoil, the New York Times reported Tuesday. Actress Ellyn Burstyn, appointed artistic co-director with actor Al Pacino in September, 1982, is stepping aside because she is too busy to concentrate on revamping the school founded in 1947 by the late Lee Strasberg. Pacino resigned in 1984. “We were falling behind instead of being on the cutting edge,” said actor Paul Newman, president of the school.
