But this leadership just took over a few years ago, so it's unlikely the board would be looking for change *unless* there was objectionable behavior from Wolpert and/or a feeling that his partnership with Evans wasn't working out.

I'd guess this is either related to ways that culture at Signature has changed in the past few years, pivoting from an artists' focused space to a revenue-generating space, which has included attempting to minimize James Houghton's role in the theater's history; or that Signature is responding to the need for more BIPOC leadership in the theater industry; or that Evans wanted him to go, but boards are not often inclined to prioritize artistic over management.
