Eliminate ego. Stimulate the soul. Foster the unexpected.
The most imposing roadblock keeping any of us from achieving greatness stands within ourselves.
A strong emphasis on thorough dramaturgical research, Asian physical and metaphysical techniques for the body and spirit of the stage artist, and Meisner acting methods are primary examples of how I strive as a theatre director, designer, actor, and educator to eliminate self-consciousness and hesitation, inspire creativity and a sense of power, and elicit the most organic, truthful moments possible on the stage... and off.
Nothing else then was real except this perfect moment of joy, shared and exchanged by the cast and crew, the searingly fine musicians, and the audience, imprinted on all our lives indelibly as a wondrous thing of greatness and beauty.
