Leta Popescu (b. Nicoleta Oana Popescu, 1989) is a Romanian theater director. In her work, she approaches relevant issues of the present, without being explicitly militant or dictating a certain fixed thesis. She started working within the Romanian theater circuit in 2013. Along 7 years of activity, she has been making theater pieces in the national theaters of Cluj, Craiova, Târgu Mureș, Timișoara. Simultaneously she worked with private companies/ngos of the Romanian independent theater sector: Reactor Cluj, Paintbrush Factory, Replika-Bucharest etc.
Leta is interested in Romanian contemporary dramaturgy, but also dramatizes contemporary prose herself. In 2017 she becomes a PhD student at the Babeş-Bolyai University with the doctoral thesis Functions and Dysfunctions in the Repertory Theaters. A Directorial Perspective on the Constructions of Repertoire in Romania Between 2010-2020 . Currently, as a PhD student, Leta Popescu has published articles in Scena.ro magazine.
