This edition: Directors on Directing

Episode Details

Original tape date: February 8, 2008.

Our distinguished panel of theatre directors - Anne Bogart, Scott Ellis and Daniel Sullivan-- discuss their early influences in theatre and how that impacted their work as directors, why they have such a strong and emotional reaction to the idea of “concept” in the directing process, their opposing opinions on the role of assistants, what plays interest them and which works they wouldn't direct, whether they each approach the process differently when directing a new work or a revival, and whether they feel directing is something that can be taught.
