Episode Details

Original tape date: October 28, 2003.

Choreographer Jonathan Butterell ("The Light In The Piazza", "Nine"), director Moises Kaufman ("The Laramie Project", "Gross Indecency"), playwright Arthur Kopit ("Nine", "Oh Dad, Poor Dad..."), choreographer Joey McKneely ("The Boy From Oz", "Wild Party"), playwright Theresa Rebeck ("Ominum Gatherum", "Bad Dates") and director Susan H. Schulman ("Little Women", "Secret Garden") explore how playwrights, directors and choreographers place themselves in the body of the character so that the character's voices and actions can emerge, what happens in the theatre to make the experience different from film and television, what it means to be an artist - and how an artist's success is measured.
