Editor’s NoteClarifying GoalsI was recently given theopportunity to be a screenerfor the National Endowment forthe Arts New Play DevelopmentProgram hosted by the ArenaStage. They’ve had a terrificresponse to their initiative,and were blown away by theamount of interest in the program,especially in terms of justhow many more applicants applied this time aroundversus the last time the NEA did a program similar tothis. But from a reader’s standpoint, what was evenmore impressive was the high percentage of proposalsfrom writers whose work has appeared at largeregional theatres, received buzzworthy showingsOff-Broadway and been featured at prestigious newworks fests. The quality of the proposals, and the artists,were uniformly high, uniformly ambitious — anduniformly wacky.As anyone who has tried to do it will tell you,writing a grant app is an art form unto itself, andoften has nothing to do with the completed work.Not out of malicious or deceitful intent, but simplybecause it comes so early (generally) in the artisticprocess and is meant to support that exploration,it can sound a little strange. The creation of a newwork is not a linear progression, and artists trying tostretch themselves and advance their work will trysome fairly out-there ideas in order to find the pathsthat work. They have to. The best apps were onesthat could: clearly state the methodology and goalsof this learning process; give some sense of the artist’shistory and aesthetic; show how the relationshipbetween the artist and the theatre was a good fit andwould support this exploration to produce the bestshow possible.It’s a good exercise for starting any artisticendeavor — from applying to school, to startingrehearsals, to auditioning, to sending out scripts.If you know how you work, what you want to learn,what your aesthetic is and why you think you’ll workwell with a particular faculty or troupe — well, it’llsave you a lot of time from auditioning for the wrongparts, sending Buckets of Blood, The Revengining toUtah Shakes, or trying to study musicals in a programdevoted to Chekhov. The middle will be weird, nomatter what you’re doing, but if you go in witha clear head you’ll have a much better chance ofgetting what you want.Dan HernandezJacob CoakleyEditorStage Directionsjcoakley@stage-directions.com6 October 2008 • www.stage-directions.com


LettersHey! What’s that Sound?While reading your recent audiopiece called "Listening vs.Hearing" in the September issue,I found myself A) hugely encouraged thata theatre publication would take on thisimportant subject and B) thinking thatyou can't train what you don't protect.High volume is no longer the bane ofonly the rock music world. Look at thetrend toward big, loud musicals. When I saw the touring versionof The Who's Tommy more than a decade ago, it was notas loud as the local version of High School Musical. I recentlywent to be fitted for a new pair of in-ear personal monitorsand had my hearing tested. Years of loud music has taken itstoll and my hearing falls off rapidly above about 10 kHz.Two points here. First: If you have been doing any kindof theatre audio for any amount of time you have very likelydamaged your hearing to some extent. Find out how much,at what frequencies and keep that in mind while mixing. Toomany sound pros mix for what they think sounds good, andif their high-end hearing is compromised then the audiencepays the price. (A friend of mine teaching an audio class inhigh school recently used a frequency generator to help withsome ear training in his class and thought it was broken whenit appeared to not output a certain frequency. Until, that is,his students started screaming in pain. It turns out he has anactual “hole” in his hearing at that particular frequency.)Second point is to do whatever you must to protect yourhearing. There is no shame in carrying and using earplugs if itextends your career by extending the life of your ears.Evan WilliamsTonopah, NVDespite advances in medical wizardry, hearing loss remainsirreversible — but eminently preventable. For some resourcesto learn how to protect your hearing, go online and check outthese institutes.H.E.A.R. (Hearing Education and Awareness for Rockers andRavers) is a non-profit dedicated to raising awareness of thedangers of repeated exposure to loud music — whether fromshows or repeated iPod abuse.The House Ear Institute (HEI) funds scientists researchinghearing loss as well as procedures meant to reverse it.Lastly, audio equipment manufacturers Shure andSensaphonics are also dedicated to preventing hearing loss, andhave valuable info on their Web sites about their initiatives andresources you can use to research your safety. — ed.CorrectionsIn the September article,“Social Work,” a picture of theartistic director of The Civilianswas mislabeled.

theatre buzzKnow Theatre Receives Grant to Reduce Ticket PricesThanks to a partnership from theCarol Ann and Ralph V. Haile/U.S.Bank Foundation, Know Theatre ofCincinnati was able to implement aninexpensive, flat ticket price for everyone of their shows this season. Themoney from the ticketing sponsorshipwill be used to supplement the costof regular season prices, reducing thecost of a ticket to all 2008-09 mainstageperformances to $12 each.Know Theatre’s Artistic DirectorJason Bruffy and Managing DirectorEric Vosmeier decided to look intoa ticketing initiative and discoveredthat similar models launched by theSignature Theatre Company in NewYork City and The National Theatre inLondon resulted in a dramatic impacton the audience composition of boththeatres. Signature Theatre Company,who partnered with Time Warner tohelp subsidize 70 percent of their currentticket prices, saw their audiencegrow in diversity of both age andincome, specifically among audiencemembers under 35, which grew to anunprecedented 30 percent.The number of theatregoers withan annual household income of lessthan $50,000 also grew by 25 percentwith many of these audiences attendingfor the first time. This was a significantjump according to the Leagueof American Theatres and Producers,who reports that the average audiencemember is 46 years old and makesapproximately $106,000 annually.Vosmeier says audience accessibilityhas always remained a priority forKnow Theatre, and the ticketing initiativereinforces this belief.DePaul University Launches Undergrad Sound Design ProgramThe Theatre School at DePaul University has begun offeringa BFA in Sound Design. New faculty member Toy DeIoriohas been appointed head of sound design.“This new program is unique in many ways, says DeanJohn Culbert. “There are very few undergraduate sounddesign programs in the country, and now we are able to offeryoung artists from around the country the opportunity toreceive specialized sound design training.”The incoming students will enter the program in thefall. According to Buchanan, “the program has been underdiscussion for almost 10 years,” and the development ofthe curriculum “involved discussions among the design andtechnical faculty, in conjunction with several local professionaltheatre sound designers and technicians… and theMusic School sound recording faculty.”In addition to DeIorio, the school also announced theappointment of Coya Paz, cofounder and co-artistic directorof Teatro Luna, as the visiting multicultural faculty position.12 October 2008 • www.stage-directions.com

Light on the Subject By Brent Stainer|Keeping Up AppearancesGet the Most out of Your DecrepitArchaic Old Fashioned ExperiencedLighting InstrumentsIn my world, all of my lighting instruments are less thanthree years old. They might be new Source Fours, orStrand SLs. Perhaps Altman Shakespeares. Unfortunately,this world exists only in my mind.I’m not alone. Approximately 98% of us face the realitythat new lighting instruments are still hoped-for goals.They are “in the planning phase,” or “awaiting funding,” orperhaps “as soon as we get the lobby remodeled.” Waitingfor these new lights may take years — or decades. In themeantime, lighting designers and master electricians haveto make their existing inventory work as best as possible.Looking back on my career, some of my best work has beenwith lighting instruments older than I am.My goal here is certainly to not dissuade you or yourtheatre administration from purchasing better quality lights— rather, I want you to recognize that the old lights we havehanging around our grids are often not as efficient as theycould be.With basic maintenance and a little TLC, these old lightscan perform very close to their original specs. We all canbenefit from a simple maintenance schedule and a littleeffort with stage lights.The first task would be to acquire manuals for the lights.Information and manuals can be found on the Internet for oldStrands, Altmans, Colortrans, Kliegels and a variety of others.Altman produces a shop manual for their entire line of lights.Although fairly expensive (in the $100 range) this manual haspaid for itself in my experience. At a minimum, get photometricdata. One excellent reference is Photometrics Handbook byRobert Mumm. It contains data on literally hundreds of oldlighting instruments that you may come across.Lenses / ReflectorsCertainly some of the most neglected parts of a stagelight, the lenses and reflectors are also the easiest tomaintain. It is a simple matter to use a little Windex and alint free cloth to keep them free from dust and debris. Themethod for removing the lenses depends on the brand ofinstrument.On Altman 360Qs, for example, you simply remove thefront retaining ring, and the first lens falls out. Removethe spacer, and the second lens (if there is one) can beremoved. Many brands are similar to the ubiquitousAltman 360Q. Opening the instrument grants access tothe reflector (an Altman 360 has a thumb screw that canbe loosened to allow the instrument to hinge in half).Remove the lamp assembly, spray a bit of Windex onto acloth, and clean the reflector. If the reflector is damaged,replacements can be purchased, or you can use a lessdamagedreflector from your scavenged parts. Usually, agood cleaning does wonders!Fresnels continue to be useful for a variety of soft-edged applications. These maintenance steps willensure they are running at peak efficiency.ShuttersSticky shutters are tiresome and frustrating. They arealso one of the most successful repairs you can do for yourself.First, open the light as you did to access the reflectorand observe how the shutters are held in place. Again,using an Altman 360 as an example, there are four sheetmetal screws from the outside of the housing into theshutter ring. Removing this ring (and subsequent rings)will open up each plane in which the shutters travel. If youneed to completely remove the shutters, drill out the rivetthat holds the fiber handle, save the fiber disks, and youcan pull the shutters out from the inside of the housing.Use OOO steel wool to polish all metal surfaces. Burnedshutters are candidates for replacement. Reassemble theshutters in the same order in which they were removed.Reattach the fiber disks, and give them a try. If they are stilltoo sticky, give a little squirt of liquid graphite into eachshutter’s plane. This will work wonders if the corrosion anddents have been removed.I am not going to pull any punches about this next point— adding WD40, 3-in-1 or any oil is a death sentence toyour shutters. Oil retains heat, warps metal and is a seriousfire hazard. Don’t do it. Invest the $1.98 for a can of spraygraphite and save your instruments! Look for spray graphitein a hardware or automotive store.Sockets/LampsAside from reflectors, sockets are the other part thatneeds semi-regular replacing. There are a few times intheatre where you can skimp by — this is not one ofthem. Sockets don’t have an indefinite lifespan. If you aregetting flickering lights — fix it. Remove the lamp andinspect the pins. Any arcing or burning is an indicatorof either a socket becoming bad, or the lamp not fullyseated. If you can rule out the lamp not fully seated,replace the socket (which usually entails replacing thetwo leads as well).All Photography By Brent Stainer16 October 2008 • www.stage-directions.com


Light on the SubjectAltman 360Qs were a staple for countless theatres. They are simpleto maintain and are still very useful lights.Keep stray fingers off the glass bulb!This is the leading cause of prematurefailure. When you replace a lamp, it isa wise idea to make note of the instrumentthat went dead and the date. Bykeeping track of how often a giveninstrument needs a replacement lampyou can identify a bad socket. If asocket is making poor contact, it canwear through lamps incredibly fast.This rapid destruction of lamps maybe the only indication you have of abad socket. Keeping accurate recordscould potentially save you hundredsof dollars.To replace the socket, you typicallyremove the connector (plug), removethe base unit and then remove a coupleof screws to withdraw the socket.Of course, each brand is a little different,but they are all fairly straightforward.Again, refer to your productinformation.ConnectorsConnectors have a few commonproblems. Stage pin connectors thathave signs of arcing or are intermittentmay need the pins to be split.This entails pressing a knife, or a pinsplitter,in the split of a pin to widenthe pin and thereby increase the contactarea. If corrosion is present, thepinsplitter has a wire brush orificethat quickly cleans the pin. All connectionsneed to be firm. Poor strainrelief will loosen electrical connectionsand cause arcing or intermittentcontact. Keep your strain relief! Anddon’t remove connectors by yankingon the cords! For safety sake, alsoensure that the ground wires are presentand intact. The need of a groundwire is simple: If there is a short in thelight, the electrical current will find anew path. It can either be the groundwire, or one of your volunteers. If theshort can’t find a ground and choosesone of your volunteers, you may havesome explaining to do.PaintI have to tell you, the aesthetics of alighting instrument aren’t usually tooimportant to me. I’m a bit pragmatic.As long as it performs well, I don’t care18 October 2008 • www.stage-directions.com


what it looks like. Anyone that hasseen my truck would agree. However,there are times when an instrument isvisible to the audience, and a clean,sharp instrument is needed.When you need to paint an instrumentthere are a few basic rules youmust follow. First, as with any qualitypaint job, do good prep work —remove the chips, the grease andthe gaff tape. Second, use high-temppaints such as those designed forwood stoves or gas grills. The cheappaint will look good until you actuallyturn the light on — then the blistering,flaking barrel and head just lookgoofy. Third, don’t paint over importantthings like inventory numbers orphotometric data.LastlyWhen an instrument is truly dead— meaning its repair costs more thanyou are willing to spend —recycle it.Break the light down for parts. Savethe lenses, reflectors, barrels, sockets,shutters, screws, knobs, connectors andanything else.If the lights are surplus and will notbe used any further, take the time andmake a few phone calls to the localcommunity theatres. Your old lightsheaded for the scrap bin could be agodsend to a smaller theatre group.Help them out. The lights you feel areobsolete and useless will be front linelights for some small group.One group I have worked withwas recently given 40-year-old, “burnbase-up” ellipses. Although outdatedby several decades, they put them touse in such a way that was very effective.Suddenly, they could illuminatethe show with sharp shadows, subtlemoods and graceful shades — previously,they simply turned the lightson or off. These antiquated lightschanged a non-lighting design intoone the community took pride in.Although old, obsolete lights arestill capable of performing. They mayneed a little more effort, but in manyinstances, they do well. When old lightsare all you have to work with — permitthem to do their best. You will be surprisedat what can be achieved.Older lights, with just a little bit of maintenance, can be restored tonearly new performance levels.www.stage-directions.com • October 2008 19


Sound Design|By Bryan ReesmanHomage To HitchcockJoan MarcusMic Pool discusses the work thatwent into winning the first Tony forBest Sound Design of a Play.Mic PoolSam Robards (right) with Cliff Saunders in pursuit, helped along with judicious sound effectsBritish sound designer Mic Pool has certainly workedon his share of serious theatre throughout his threedecadecareer. He’s tackled The Postman AlwaysRings Twice and late Shakespeare plays, not to mentionWagner’s Ring Cycle as a video designer, so he jumped atthe refreshing opportunity to help create an onstage parodyof Alfred Hitchcock’s classic black-and-white thrillerThe 39 Steps. Made to look like a low rent production witha cast of four and seriously minimal stage effects — thefamous plane chase sequence across the moors is donewith puppets and props in shadowplay — this version ofThe 39 Steps is self-referential and self-mocking. It gleefullyquotes other Hitchcock film titles in its dialogue andis driven by manic energy and over-the-top performancesfrom its talented cast, three of whom tackle multiple roles.Now the show has come to Broadway from London’s WestEnd, and the icing on the cake for Pool is that he won thefirst ever Tony Award for Sound Design of a Play thanksto his work on it. In reality, the show is far from strippeddown. Ironically, it requires highly sophisticated sound andvisual effects to create its low-budget aura.Stage Directions: What was it like to win the first Tonyfor Sound Design of a Play?Mic Pool: It was great. It was very different from the UKaward ceremonies. I was nominated for a Laurence OlivierAward the year before for the same show. The OlivierAwards are far more of an industry-only bash, whereas withthe Tonys, a good proportion of the 6,000 people that werethere are regular theatregoers that had bought tickets. I wasquite surprised at how genuinely pleased they were for thefew that won. At the after-party people were coming up andwere generally so thrilled about it, which is very differentto the people in England, who are very cool and reservedabout awards. When you get one you’re really pleased toget it, but you’re not meant to show it. [laughs] In America,jumping up and down seems to be par for the course.The sound effects for 39 Steps really play key roles invarious scenes.There’s a lot of music. There are a lot of sound effects,more than probably any other show I’ve done. The timingof the music and effects really contributes to the way thecomedy works or doesn’t work. If the timing is off on thesound then quite a few things can fall flat. The show ispretty well oiled now with eight productions around theworld. It’s quite a big franchise, although the Americanshow is quite different from a lot of the others. It’s slightlybigger and more tightly choreographed and polished.What was your approach in designing sound for theNew York production, and how did it vary from designingthe show in England?I think the sound is probably the thing that’s changedthe least and has been consistent in all of the productions.When I first got involved with the show in 2005, this was20 October 2008 • www.stage-directions.com


Joan MarcusJoan MarcusJennifer Ferrin and Sam Robards in The 39 Stepsthe version of the show that the Broadway and Londonversions were based on. It was with a different director,but it was the first time that the set and the sound designon the current production were used. That was in Leeds,and the starting premise was that a lot of the story wouldbe told through the sound and there would be a requirementfor a lot of music. We basically set the rule that allthe music had to either be from Hitchcock’s films or had tosound like it could have been.When we started rehearsing the show, we had a hugearmory of all the sounds that might possibly work in thatcontext, all loaded into samplers in the rehearsal room. Iwas working alongside the first cast, and we created mostof it as we went along.The sound effects are crucial to the show becauseyou’re satirizing both low-budget theatre and vintagefilmmaking. There are many sequences that make theshow look and sound like it’s a black-and-white filmplaying from that same era. You utilize many train andplane sound effects.We also had simple things like the telephone ring,which is an iconic recording probably used in British filmsfrom the ‘30s and ‘40s, and the pitch fluctuates slightly.There’s something about the inconsistency and the speedthat immediately says we’re in a 1930s movie. We did thatwith the other effects as well, although a lot of them wererecorded considerably later than the period. They all hadto sound like they could have been in the film.Sam Robards, Arnie Burton, Cliff Saunders and Jennifer Ferrin in The 39 Stepsbecause it gets so hot in the summer, and they’re not asquiet as we might like, some discreet miking is used. I thinkyou can hear every word in The 39 Steps, but you’re not reallyaware that the actors are being miked, and that was theintention. You turn it up, and then as soon as you can hear ityou just start backing it off until it’s as invisible as it can be.What kind of console are you running and how manyinputs are you using?As far as live channels, there are five channels for the fivefoot mics, and everything else, like the effects, is automatedusing Stage Research’s SFX system, which has 16 outputs.That’s pretty much it. Dann Wojnar, who is the operator,is very skillfully balancing the floor mics, but pretty muchall the routing and levels for the sound effects are all automated.So, it’s a one button push deal for most of it, which isIt’s funny how the phone ring gets louder and louder forfake tension during one sequence, and at another point,it purposefully rings out of sync with the dialogue.It rings out of cue, which is probably the first key indicatorto the audience that everything is slightly tongue-in-cheekand is likely to get more so as the evening progresses.Which mics and transmitters are you using on the actors?There are no transmitters and no radios in the show atall. It’s very simple: five very high-quality mics, DPA 4021s,hidden among the footlights that are basically fed into theunderbalcony delays and a little bit down in front. Apartfrom New York, everywhere else it plays the actors are completelyunamplified. I think there’s an expectation amongNew York audiences that they don’t have to listen quiteso carefully as they might in a theatre in London. And alsobecause you need much larger air-conditioning systems


Sound Designgreat because it means that he can concentrate entirely ongetting the timing right and getting the really tight visualclues like the doors opening and the professor scene at theend of Act One and the slaps and things. There are a lot ofreally tight visual cues, and Dann works really hard at gettingthose spot on night after night.How many sound effects total do you have in the show?There are 160 numbered cues, but I think most ofthe cues are sequences that probably have anywherebetween 10 and 20 lines on them. So there are probablyabout 500 or 600 sound effects or music cues over thecourse of an hour-and-a-half. A lot of them just appearto the audience as scene sequences like the train stoppingwhen they pull the communication chord. To theaudience it just sounds like she pulls this communicationchord and the train stops. But we’ve actually left all of theelements of that sequence as individual sounds, so thaton cast changes and when we do the show elsewhere wecan adjust the timings of the whole of that sequence justby changing the wait times within the sequence. That waywe don’t have to go back and create the entire thing allover again. Each of the brake sounds, steam releases andthe final jolting of the thing are all on the computer asindividual sounds.Dann really enjoys doing the show and is quite keento do the tour in the fall of ‘09, and I think part of that isbecause even though it’s an automated show, the soundoperator’s contribution is really crucial because of howtightly cued the visual cues have to be and the fact that youcan do comic timing. How you execute the cues can have abig impact on the size of the laugh that a gag gets.What were the most fun sound effects to create forthe show?I quite like the train sequence and the chase acrossthe moors, which is the shadowplay sequence. That’s thesequence that we open up a bit because what the audienceis looking at is two-dimensional, and that’s probablythe only time we can go to into full surround sound andmove around the auditorium with the biplanes flyingaround. The musical scenes and the Palladium scenes arefun as well, with that audience applause sound that canbe switched off instantly.What were the biggest challenges for you on the show?Probably just the sheer quantity of sounds — it’s nota particularly long show, but there’s a lot of stuff in it— and doing effects that are integrally comic withoutsounding cartoonish. If you listened to the sound effectsout of context, you wouldn’t say, “That’s such an outrageouseffect. It would never be in a Hitchcock film.” Ithink all of them could have been, but it’s just the waythat they’re combined and exaggerated and executedthat makes them comic. It’s walking that tightropebetween creating stuff that’s ridiculous and cartoonish,which you don’t want to do, and creating things that aregenuinely funny but out of material that doesn’t soundout of place in the play that we’re doing.22 October 2008 • www.stage-directions.com


Theatre Spotlight|By Kevin M. MitchellEvent Producer Returns to His Roots and His LoveSam NanceNance’s work on the ICT production of NineSam Nance hits his second act in stride.A moment from Irving Community Theater’s DraculaSo much for the oft-quoted Scott Fitzgerald line, “There areno second acts in America.” Lighting Designer Sam Nanceis living a second act — or maybe it’s his third.Nance is currently doing a lot of work at the Irving CommunityTheater (ICT) in Irving, Texas, a theatre rich in history. Whileincorporated in 1971, it actually has roots back to 1949. It hasgrown to one of the largest volunteer-based theatres in Texaswhere typically 150 people contribute to each season, with onlydirectors, designers and a part-time administrator receivingcompensation.ICT is a busy place: They produce a season of five mainstage shows a year, plus offer three additional programs at itsStudio on Rochelle. It includes Reader's Theatre, ICT ShowcaseProductions and ICT Theatre On The Edge (TOTE) productions.Then there’s the ICT Clubhouse for children and teens interestedin theatre production. Through this program kids workdirectly in productions in lighting, sound, set construction, frontof house, and as performers. ICT also hosts several local andstage theatre festivals as part of the American Association ofCommunity Theatre Festival.The theatre features an ETC Impression console, and recentlyreceived funds to replace the older Strand dimmers. “They havetons of ETC Source 4s, plus all the gear the theatre was bornwith,” he laughs. “I’ll go back in the closets and sometimes justfind things I didn’t know it had!”The award-winning theatre has increasingly turned to Nanceto light their shows. Last year, he lit four of the five main shows,and it looks like he’ll be doing at least four this season.Stage Directions: What’s your background?Sam Nance: In eighth grade, an English teacher tapped meon the shoulder and asked me to read for a part in a play, andI absolutely fell in love with theatre. Then in high school I dida little tech, back when the first dimmers were resistance dimmers!I went to Bethel College in Bethel, Kansas, then to TrinityUniversity in San Antonio where I received my MFA.After that, I would use my technical ability in the wonderfulworld of special events. I started a company doing that for 28years, but after 25 of it, I realized I wasn’t having any fun, so I gotout of it and back into theatre.Today, in addition to being a lighting designer, I teach productionclasses at the Episcopal School of Dallas.What have been some of your recent designs at ICT?It was Nine and it was a wonderful experience. It was a goodshow, we had a tremendous cast, and the director was a joy towork with. We’ve also done Shakespeare for the Modern Man,Proof and Dracula.What draws you to lighting design?I was initially attracted to theatre because of its ability to tell astory, and I still love that even though for me it’s more narrowlydefined as “how can I tell the story with light?” Even when I wasdoing corporate work, I was telling a story.What makes a badly lit show for you?The badly lit show is one where the lights draw attention tothemselves and distract from the story. They can be too bright ortoo dark, or jarring in some fashion… though having said that, inthis particular production of Nine, there were some occasions forthe lights to be more obvious, but I think that was appropriatebecause of the nature of the show, as opposed to somethinglike Proof.What part of the process do you like the most?I like it when the phone rings, and I like it when I cash thecheck! [Laughs] The real answer though is the rehearsal processwhen you’re in that first “stumble-through” stage. You’ve read itseveral times, but now you’re reacting to what is on stage. You’rescribbling notes, making arrows and squares on paper… that’sexciting. That’s the first rush.What do you tell people who want to break into the business?First, if there’s anything else you can do in your life and behappy doing it, do that. If not, go to school, but don’t depend ongoing to school alone getting you work. Julliard sends out thebest-trained people in the world who then become waiters!Get your master’s if you’re inclined, but you have to becommitted to the learning process more than the teacher iscommitted to the teaching process. It’s all about what you takein. That gives you a vocabulary, but you need to be workingin theatres doing whatever shows you possibly can to take inmore. You can work for 30 years like that and then suddenly bean overnight wonder.24 October 2008 • www.stage-directions.com


Theatre Space|By Michael S. EddyEveryone Into the TheatreStagedoor Manor’s completed Oasis Theater. The sound and lighting booth is at the right.Konnie KittrellStagedoor Manor creates a new space with its Oasis Theater.Stagedoor Manor, a renowned performing arts camp inNew York State, has always been a place about “seeingthe potential.” In 1975, Carl and Elsie Samuelson saw thepotential of the Karmel Hotel, an old Catskill resort past itsstoried heyday, to become a first class performing arts campfor young people.Over the years, along with artistic director Jack Romano, theytrained and helped nurture the potential in a long list of kids,many who make up a who’s who of the entertainment industryincluding Natalie Portman, Zach Braff, Jon Cryer, MandyMoore, Robert Downey Jr. and Todd Graff, whose well-receivedfilm Camp was based on his memories of being at Stagedoor.So, it is no surprise that current owner Cindy Samuelson sawthe potential of the indoor pool, a remnant of the bygone daysof the Karmel Hotel, to become an intimate “in-the-round” performancespace. Eight months of construction later, Stagedoorbrought the curtain up on the Oasis Theater.The pool was seen as the ideal location because it wasunderused and yet a main focal point in the building. “A fullsizeindoor swimming pool took up a lot of room,” points outSamuelson. “We really don’t have swimmers. In fact, mostof our kids go down to the outdoor pool to study lines. Theindoor pool was centrally located; it was two stories of openspace with the upper studios looking into the area.” Thechoice to make the space in the round was so they could offerthe campers a different experience points out Samuelson.“This is our eighth theatre and we try to have a wide arrayof spaces because it is important for our kids to learn how towork within different stage arrangements. It needed to be atheatre that would be able to do musicals and drama; it wasvery important to us that we have that flexibility.”The space was designed by architect Aaron Dai, of DaiStudios and Helia Lee, principal at Helia Lee Design Studio, whoboth were excited by the challenge of converting the pool to aperformance space. Their solution involved creating a separatetheatre “building” within the already existing structure.“Once we saw the indoor pool area, it was so intriguing tous,” recalls Lee. “Choosing the pool area as the site did offer usa challenge. One thing that we grappled with was how to insertthis structure into a space that is meant to be wide open andviewed from 360° without completely closing it off. We tried toretain as much of that visibility across the space as we could.We put in two viewing windows looking down into the newspace. You can catch glimpses of people rehearsing or walkingby and it makes for an intriguing space. Also, in the design, wewanted the seating, aisles and exits to create all kinds of stagingpossibilities for the directors. Recently, Aaron and I saw aperformance at the Oasis, and we really felt encompassed bythe production just as we were hoping.”Dai felt that one of the challenges they met very wellwas the roof design of the theatre. “I think it’s both aestheticallyforward and appropriate for Stagedoor, and it addressedsome fairly complex physical requirements. It’s actually quiteunique in its construction.”Samuelson understood the problems that Dai and Lee faced.“I think the biggest challenge whenever you are reinventing aspace is that you are dealing with an existing space. The girlsdormitory was above the new theatre space, and there was agreat deal of plumbing so we had to make sure whatever webuilt would be insulted from the plumbing above it. The designdropped the ceiling down and put a second roof on, which usesexisting steel beams of the pool to support a drainage system. Ifthere are leaks above they are channeled down into the drainagesystem that was in there for the pool.”Samuelson particularly likes that they actually kept the poolitself, turning it into the engine area of the room. “The pool isstill there. There are actual concrete pillars that were put intothe base of the pool and on top of that is corrugated aluminum.But you can still go down into the pool — it’s like the Titanic.The bottom area is now used for the air conditioning and a lotof the electrical. We put in a suspended grid for the lighting andall the wiring goes along and then below into the pool.”Lighting and Audio In-the-RoundLighting in the Oasis Theater is supported from a 4-foot-by-4-foot pipe grid, which affords a wide range of hanging loca-26 October 2008 • www.stage-directions.com


tions. The grid spans beyond the 20-foot-by-30-foot stage andis suspended from I-beams over the stage. They currently use aStrand CD80 96 dimmer rolling rack from which runs 1,000 feetof multicable up to the grid and along the I-beams to eitherend of the stage. All the lighting is controlled via a Leviton/NSIMelange Pro console. The Oasis sound system has four Electro-Voice System 200 speakers, one Mackie FRS 1700 amplifier andcontrol provided by a Mackie CFX 12 console.“The Oasis Theater is a diamond in the rough here atStagedoor,” says Jimmy Rodgers, head of tech. “We are experiencingand learning new things about the space every day.Never having worked in a theatre-in-the-round, I was lookingforward to the challenge and am really enjoying it. At first, youmight think that a space with minimal to no set, just a few furniturepieces here and there, would be easy; but once we gotinto the swing of things, it was quite the opposite.” Rodgerscontinues, “For the lighting designer, the Oasis offers a hugecreative entity to play and experiment with because thereare many options for different looks, placement and function.Angles play a big part since this is a space where while somefront light gives the look you want, you could be blinding theaudience members across the stage at the same time.”Tuning Up the SpaceBesides concerns about sightlines, Dai and Lee knew theywould need an acoustician to help with the complex acousticissues of building in the pool area, pointing out that it was anunusually live acoustical environment. This is where acousticianRich Riedel, principal of Brightwaters, N.Y.-based Riedel Audio &Acoustical Consulting came in. “We did the basic room acousticsas well as some of the finishes that are acoustical treatments andthe design of the sprung floor for the stage over the pool area.”Riedel discussed with us some of the challenges of turninga pool into a theatre. “For the most part we needed toThe pool still exists beneath the sprung-floor stage, and isshown here during an early stage of the construction process.isolate the area. I gave them some guidelines as far as actualwall construction to achieve the highest amount of isolationwithin the space and the budgetary restrictions. We had todesign a sprung floor for dance purposes over the pool, sothat was one of the most unique things from my standpoint.The acoustical treatments were chosen to look aestheticallypleasing and would achieve a good balance of acoustics fora multi-purpose use.”The dorms right above the Oasis Theater needed to bedealt with acoustically as well. “We used basic isolation techniques,”comments Riedel. “We increased the mass of thedemising walls and ceilings.”Riedel likes that “the space — in some respects — is veryunique because of the fact that you have on any given occasionany number of things happening in it. When I was up there lasttime, they had a dance class in the new Oasis Theater, they hada choir class in an adjoining space, they had a tap dancing classup above, and they had a dramatic presentation in the adjoiningtheatre. You have all of these things happening simultaneously;sometimes isolation can be an issue there.”The space is today what Samuelson saw when she lookedat the old pool two years ago. “Until you see something cometo life you don’t know how it is really going to be used, butwe tried to design it to have multiple purposes. It is wherewe present our Dramafest program; we have staged musicalsand dramas; plus because it has a sprung floor we hold masterdance classes there. It is wonderful to see how adaptivethe space is; it has become part of Stagedoor in an extraordinaryway. Because it functions so well it is never empty, itis constantly used from morning until night. The reception tothe space has been extraordinary.”Michael S. Eddy writes about design and technology.

Feature|By Mike LawlerGreenSupportGideon Banner and the Green Theatre InitiativeWhen talking to Gideon Banner, its easy to see howthis New York actor has entered the so-called greentheatre movement through sheer conviction. It’s alsoeasy to hear just how serious he is about his latest project, alabor of love called the Green Theatre Initiative (GTI). Whilegetting the organization and its informative Web site off theground is a new kind of challenge for Banner, it is one that heembraces with passion and clarity. In many ways, he is perfectlysuited for his newest role as the founder of GTI, an organizationthat aims to make it easier for performing arts companies torun their operations in a more sustainable manner.From Blue to GreenThe idea for GTI came to Banner while acting in the New Yorkproduction of the Blue Man Group — a gig he’s had on and off forthe past nine years. About two years ago, Banner sat down withthe stage manager and created an environmental committee thatenacted simple changes like switching to compact fluorescentlight bulbs, increasing recycling efforts and using green cleaningproducts. It seemed like such a simple — and important — ideathat they brought it to the founders of Blue Man, proposing theadoption of a similar plan companywide. To Banner’s delight, thefounders had similar leanings and were already in the process offormulating an environmental policy for the company.But what if the idea of implementing green policies hadn’toccurred to the thousands of performing companies acrossthe country — or worse — what if they simply didn’t knowhow to green their operations? As Banner moved about hisacting life, working for various companies, he began to thinkabout how to expand the idea of sustainable theatre production,and realized that the problem was large.“I saw the waste that was being generated, the energy thatwas being wasted, and felt that something could — and should— be done,” he says. His growing concern led him to the initialconclusion that nothing short of immediate and sweepingaction would do. But he soon discovered a common obstacle:“Generally, theatres don’t have money to throw at this,” he says.His belief in the move toward greener production held firm,though, and he soon came to the conclusion that the solutionsrequired could also be a boon to the organizations enactingthem. “This is something that I not only believe that theatresshould do, but I think it’s something that will benefit them,” hesays. “Making a commitment to reducing a theatre’s impact onthe environment can only benefit its relationship to the community,create new sources of funding, and — this I think isvery important — invigorate the theatre’s staff.”Getting ConnectedGTI is currently focused on helping to bring togetherpeople and organizations that are already moving in a greendirection through the recently introduced GTI e-newsletter.Banner admits that he is routinely amazed by the sheernumber of people across the country taking steps toward aneco-friendly theatre. “All of these people are working independently,”Banner told me recently from New York, “and theGreen Theatre Initiative aims to connect them. To say ‘here iswhat your colleagues are doing, if you want encouragementor advice on an issue, we will connect you.’”From a practical point of view, Banner sees the work ofGTI as twofold: First, GTI aims to convince theatres that theyshould do all they can to promote sustainability within theirorganizations. It does this by highlighting the work of theatresand theatre professionals that are already taking greenaction. Second, GTI acts as a bridge between the desire to gogreen and the resources necessary to do so, whether practicalinformation via its Web site or cultivating the technical andfunding sources necessary.It’s easy for people, and perhaps organizations, of all kindsto disassociate themselves from the environment or the longtermhealth and well-being of future generations. Things likeglobal climate change, biodiversity and even pollution arebig picture ideas that are often difficult to connect to the hereand now. But, according to Banner, there are two direct, pragmaticbenefits for theatres going green. The first is money.“This is going to be the next big funding source of the next20 years, if not more, as the level of urgency grows,” Bannersays of the sustainability movement in the arts. Just as theatresfound that developing educational programs increasedtheir ability to attract funding and improve community rela-30 October 2008 • www.stage-directions.com


Featuretions, so too will green innovation andoutreach. Funding based on the adoptionof environmentally minded policiesis already on the rise, Banner notes, andGTI hopes to help keep that trend movingin an upward direction.Also, Banner asserts that many of thedecisions theatres make on this frontwill not only appeal to donors, but maysave them outgoing dollars as well.“Often times,” he says, “we’ll end upsaving theatres money” through energyand water conservation and efficiency.Of course, not all green initiatives willhave this effect, and Banner admits thatcan be a hard pill to swallow for manyorganizations already struggling to runin the black.Greening the Next GenerationCultivating the next generation oftheatergoers is also a key incentive fortheatres to embrace the idea of reducingtheir footprint on the planet. “Asyounger audiences become more concernedabout this, and theatres want toremain connected and vital, they needto take action on this front,” Bannersays. While younger generations are notthe only ones deeply concerned aboutecological issues, it seems clear thatthey tend to be more in tune with thecause and accepting of the core issues,including global climate change. Theyare also, as Banner indicates, the audienceof the future.This doesn’t mean that theatresneed to begin aggressively integratingenvironmental issues into theirwork. “Nobody wants shows that area rallying cry for the environment,”Banner says. “Nobody wants to hitaudiences over the head with it.” But,it is the inner workings of a theatre’soperations where real change can bemade — creating opportunities forthemselves and their communitiesin the process. “Theatres should bemaking a commitment in their operationsand their planning to reducingtheir impact on the environment, andtherefore, leading by example,” hesays.And for those of you who may thinkit’s too little too late, Banner has thisto say: “I’m a firm believer in optimismwhen it comes to this. If you present itas a creative challenge, as an opportunityto rethink, as an artistic challenge,then I think people will happily step upand come up with solutions.”

for the art behind all those zeroes.Feature| By Bryan Reesman No, I think it’sBehind the SetIt may be all about the money, but David Korins still searchesCarol RoseggStew and his band rock out in front of Korins’ light wall in the recently closed Passing Strange.It’s not always easy to get insightful talk from Broadwayinsiders, but veteran Off-Broadway set designer DavidKorins, who has been making a smooth and steady transitionto the Great White Way, gave us the straight dope. A manwith a passion for creation and collaboration — check out thecolorful, multi-tiered light wall used to set the different moodsin the Amsterdam and Berlin sequences of Passing Strange —he has been active for eight years and worked on shows likethis summer’s Hamlet in Central Park and The Marriage ofBette and Boo at the Roundabout Theatre Company; delvedinto film and industrial design; and has been designing forthe new John Patrick Shanley play and helping bring Rentto Tokyo. Enthusiastic and engaging, Korins waxed eloquentabout the art of the stage designer, the state of the Broadwaymusical and the future of his chosen profession.Stage Directions: You keep quite busy, don’t you?David Korins: I’ve been pretty solidly doing three or fourshows a month. But you have to. You can’t afford to not doit. It’s not a financially ruminative situation. It’s just not. Youreally do have to keep many, many irons in the fire.I saw Passing Strange before it closed, which was great.Spike Lee filmed it, and someone suggested to me thatthe show was closing because many people anticipatedthe DVD release.because it waslimping alongfinancially. Thetruth is Off-Off-Broadway becameOff-Broadway, Off-Broadway becameBroadway, Broadwaybecame Vegas, andDavid KorinsVegas became circus. Something happened 10 years ago,and you’re not going to be a hit on Broadway unless youcan appeal to tourists — period. If you can’t bring your kidsto the show, and you don’t have a huge spectacle, you’regoing to have a hard time. Passing Strange is basically writtenfor people who read The New Yorker, and it’s a verydifficult sell. It’s a very literate play with references to JeanLuc Godard and Pier Paolo Pasolini, and it’s a really headything, even though at the root of it, it’s truly the Americanmusical. It’s a story about a boy and his mom, and a guygoing off to find his life and his dream through art. It hascommon themes that are couched in German performanceart pieces and Amsterdam drug trips. I feel like if you live inTopeka, Kan., and you’re coming here to see a show, you’regoing to see Phantom, Hairspray and Wicked.34 October 2008 • www.stage-directions.com


FeatureCarol RoseggDaniel Breaker and the cast of Passing StrangeHollywood and Broadway are similarin that they’re all about the openingnumbers now. It’s harder for independentartists to get attention for theirwork these days. In Hollywood, rightnow, you have really huge hits orsurprise independent breakthroughslike Juno.When I moved to New York Cityand started doing work in theatreand film, there really was such a thingas a $500 show. You could really havea set built for very cheap and putthe thing up. The cost of materials,and for the larger shows the cost oflabor, have become so high that therisk is so high that there’s no longer asingle producer on a show. There arenow teams of producers. You read aPlaybill and see 30 names above thetitle. The risk is so high that I thinkthe product that they have to backalmost always winds up appealingto the lowest common denominatorbecause you have to be so broad withthe things that you’re presenting.Given the rising cost of shows thesedays, do you think that Broadwayproducers will start seeking younger,cheaper talent in scenic design?Our business is regulated by a union.Broadway shows are regulated by unionfee minimums, so there are very fewhigher-echelon designers who are ableto negotiate above and beyond whatthe union agreement is. It’s actually notsomething that happens on Broadway.Only in rare instances can people notcome to agreement for monetary reasons,for fee reasons. Then they’ll go tosomeone else, but more often than not,because of the labor agreements, it is aunionized standard.How about Off-Broadway?Off-Broadway it happens, althoughI feel like it’s much more driven by thematerials budget and the budgets forthe scenery for the show and not somuch what the fees are. The fees inthe theatre are honestly just so pooranyway that you’re saving $1,000 or$5,000 or something like that. It’s reallyabout how much money they’re lookingto spend on the show, and thenif someone takes on the project theyknow what they’re getting into. Anyonethat has experience working Broadwayor Off-Broadway in these kinds of situationswill ask what the budget is andknow what they’re getting into.Is it more challenging for youto design a Broadway or an Off-Broadway show?I think both have their challenges. AsI said before, the question is more whichtypes of plays get produced. I feel likewhile Broadway tends to have more traditionaltheatre arrangements, meaninga proscenium with a fly rail, there seemto be more physical challenges oftenwith an Off-Broadway production. Inother words, if you want something tofly in from the ceiling, but there is noway inherently in the physical structureof the building to do that, how do youmake something fly in? It’s more likesolving a puzzle. It’s really about whatthe play needs and how you need tosupport that visually. I think that bothhave extreme challenges.What advice would you give to aspiringor young scenic designers?I would tell a young scenic designerto see as much theatre as they possiblycan, and to try their best to support the

I feel like life is a marathon, not asprint, and the way that you do the bestwork is by supporting the text.Do you think that perhaps your job ischanging and that you’re required tointerface more with different departmentsin new ways, such as whenyou collaborated on the colorful lightwall for Passing Strange?I think that that has probably alwaysbeen the case. I think now there are ideasand methods that maybe toe the line orjump over the line in a different way. ButI think that it was always the case for setdesigners, costume designers and lightingdesigners to be great collaboratorsand cross-pollinate. What I’m finding isthat at different points in the process,I’m being asked to weigh in in differentcapacities. When I’m just draftingand building a model and conceivinga design, I’m just being a set designer,but I like to think of myself as a personthat is in deep collaboration with thelighting designer because I’m essentiallymaking sculpture and they’re basicallylighting it. I like to think of myself as aco-director because I’m making a sculpturethat people have to move throughand on and climb and be around. Howdoes that work, and how does that affectthe action and the dramaturgy and themental situation that these performersare in?

Special Section: TrainingThe Art of EducationHow theatrical study guides can help teachers teach.Joe BorisAt the Young Audiences of Atlanta Share the World residency, Atlanta public school students use theperforming arts to explore and interpret themes of diversity and co-existence.By Bret LoveThere’s a snobbish theory that suggests that TV, videogames, the Internet and sensationalized tabloid mediahave dumbed down modern culture to the point thatour collective brains are incapable of understanding anythingthat requires our undivided attention.Regardless of where you stand on this pop culture debate,hardly anyone would argue that the job of those responsiblefor educating our kids has become increasingly difficult, requiringnovel approaches to reach minds accustomed to a multimediaonslaught of information. As a result, more and moreschools are turning to the theatre as a means of enhancingtheir curriculum, and more and more theatres are offering educationaloutreach programs to enhance both their relationshipwith the community and their bottom line.But how can theatres work with teachers to augment a traditionalclassroom education? We recently spoke with four educationspecialists to get their opinions: Alan Louis, the director ofmuseum and education programs at the Center for PuppetryArts in Atlanta; Myrna B. Lubin, associate director for YoungAudiences of Atlanta; Torrie McDonald, the literary and publicationsmanager at Seattle Children's Theatre; and John Stephens,artistic director for Atlanta’s Theatre Gael/WorldSong.Louis, whose theatre has mounted recent productionssuch as Duke Ellington’s Cat (which introduced students to thelegendary jazz composer/pianist/bandleader), suggests thattheatrical productions can enrich content students might otherwisefind boring. “Dramatizing history, science or literaturemakes the subject matter more real — and therefore morememorable — for kids,” he says.Reinforce ThemesIn order to academically reinforce the themes covered intheir productions, many theatres choose to provide studyStudents participate in Atlanta’s Center for Puppetry Arts Create-A-Puppet Workshopguides — packets of educational materials that may includeeverything from background information about the story toa detailed bibliography and/or Web sites related to the topicor author. But what separates a really great study guide froma mediocre one?“A good resource guide will first and foremost not causeany extra work for the teacher hoping to utilize it,” emphasizesMcDonald. “Ideally, education materials would supplyinformation to help prepare a class for coming to theshow and give some post-show exploration work as well. Ifyou've already given curriculum ties or your state's academicrequirements that will be met by seeing the show and workingon the guide, then supplying information on those topicsis key. Our guides always include informational bits as well asactivities and/or discussion questions.”Stephens, whose theatre’s recent productions includeGone For A Soldier (which tells the story of two friends whofind themselves on opposite sides in the American Civil War)and The Boy Who Would Be King (which follows the boyhoodhopes and dreams of Martin Luther King Jr.) emphasizes theneed for clear and creative curriculum connections, advocacyfor the arts as a tool for learning and, perhaps mostimportantly, a practical understanding of a busy classroomteacher’s needs and support through the discussion of specificeducational goals.“I see way too many study guides prepared by theatrecompanies that do little more than offer suggestions for38 October 2008 • www.stage-directions.com


Special Section: Trainingclassroom activities,” concurs Louis. “Teachers don't havethe time to sit down and create a lesson plan based on yoursuggestions and then correlate the lesson to state-mandatedperformance standards. Do the work for them and they’remuch more likely to use your study guide in their classrooms.A study guide from your theatre can be a valuableresource for teachers if it is easy to use.”Follow Published GuidelinesLubin, associate director of one of 32 chapters of thenation’s largest arts-in-education company, lists the followingessential components for Young Audiences’ four-pagestudy guides: a brief program description, short bio of theartist/ensemble, background information about the art form,a list of pre-performance questions, post-performance questionsand discussion topics, suggestions for in-class follow-upactivities, a list of vocabulary words and a list of resources.She also references the Kennedy Center’s 1998 book,Giving Cues: Recommended Guidelines for Writing and DesigningPerformance Materials for Young People by John C. Carr andLynne B. Silverstein, which lists the following criteria for creatinggood study guides:• Performance materials should be written to be understoodby students and teachers who have little or no backgroundin the arts. Materials should not assume prior knowledgeof concepts, background information or specialized artsvocabulary.• Teachers operate within time constraints, and as a result,prefer materials that can be used in the classroom withminimal preparation… Since teachers select among items,materials should be written and organized in a modularway, rather than sequentially.• Teachers are accountable for teaching specific curriculum;they expect performance materials to have curriculumconnections.• Performance materials should be written from a problemfocusedperspective. In addition, materials should be student-centeredand activity-oriented. Materials should leadstudent to discover information, to explore processes, andto respond in critical and creative ways.• Performance materials should be written directly for studentsin grades 4 and above. Teachers report that students’preparation for performances is enhanced when materialsare written for and given to students... teachers report thatChris BennionMichael Place as Atreyu with Morla, the giant turtle, in Seattle Children’s Theatre’s production ofThe Neverending StoryJennifer Sue Johnson as Sophie and Charles Leggett as The BFG in The Big Friendly Giant at theSeattle Children’s Theatrestudents value receiving performance materials they canuse in class, keep and share with family members.• Performance materials should invite and hold readers’attention through their clarity and liveliness. Both teachersand students like materials that are lively and imaginative.Using different formats increases the number of ways contentcan be presented.• Teachers give greatest attention to performance materialsbefore students attend performances. Although teachersrecognize that follow-up is necessary, they report that thegreatest impact is achieved when students are preparedahead of time. While materials should include informationand activities for both before and after performances, morepreparation activities should be provided.• Teachers appreciate materials that demonstrate respect fortheir professionalism. Teachers reject materials that giveany hint of condescension.Why It WorksIn the end, all of our experts agreed that the combinationof well-done theatrical productions and well-made studyguides help to augment traditional classroom education andmake teachers’ jobs easier in the process.“A single performance, when supplemented by well-producedstudy guides, can enrich classroom content by making itmore interesting and relevant,” says Lubin. “A study guide canprovide a focus for a particular curriculum standard teachersmust teach, lead students to consider how art reflects society,and foster certain habits of mind such as applying past knowledge,thinking interdependently, creativity and innovation.Seeing a great play performed by talented actors is a multisensoryexperience that engages the audience member emotionallyas well as cognitively. A study guide can help studentsthink critically about why a play — or any other performanceor art exhibition — has touched them emotionally; understandthe playwright’s motivation and technical skills; and can inspirethem to explore their own creativity.”“Exposure to the arts is a valuable educational experiencein and of itself,” insists McDonald. “But resource material thatconnects basic curricula to whatever play teachers bringtheir students to deepens the understanding of both the artand the curriculum. The immediacy and relatability that livetheatre can bring to classroom work gives both teacher andstudents a vibrant avenue for critical thinking that is impossibleto find in traditional educational structures.”Chris Bennion40 October 2008 • www.stage-directions.com


Special Section: TrainingScott GrollerEscape VelocityA few things to consider whenexamining grad schoolsBy Breanne GeorgeA scene from the 2008 CalArts production of PlateeIt behooves any artist making the leap to grad school toseriously consider what, exactly, they want to get out ofthe experience. They’ll need to judge between manydifferent programs to find the one that best suits theiraesthetic, style of learning and career goals. For some basicquestions that anyone considering grad school shouldexamine, check out Dave McGinnis’ article on page 48.(That goes for actors and directors, too.) Meanwhile, SDspoke with individuals at four prestigious grad programsin different areas of theatrical skills. They told us how theirprograms help students to launch into the real world, andwhat to look for when researching grad schools.Design and ProductionWhen choosing a graduate program in technical theatre,Seth Stewart, recruitment counselor at the Schoolof Theater at the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts),advises prospected students to consider how many productionsthe school puts on each year and if graduatestudents actually design the productions as opposed toassisting another designer or faculty member. “In our program,we only take in three designers in each discipline,”he says. “The School of Theater produces 20 to 30 showseach year, which gives students a lot of hands-on experience.”This hands-on experience gives students the ability tobuild their portfolios within the three-year program topresent their work at National Portfolio Day. The end-ofthe-yearevent is geared more toward the professionalcommunity and gives students the opportunity to exhibittheir work at the main gallery at CalArts in front of industryprofessionals. “We invite a host of industry professionalsin theatre, film, television and other arts arenas to lookat their work,” Stewart says. “This is the major organizedevent we have for students to network.”While company recruiters are commonplace at the event,heads of companies and higher ups also attend, usuallyfrom organizations with CalArts alumni or affiliations. Forexample, with the school’s strong affiliation with Disney(Walt Disney founded CalArts in 1961), Pixar Chief CreativeOfficer John Lasseter has come to past showcases.Students are required to attend the annual StudentTheatre Festival, where select productions have the opportunityto be mounted at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. “It’sgreat because students work on the productions from theground up here at CalArts and have the opportunity toattend the Edinburgh Fringe Festival,” Stewart says. “Wetook 16 students in two different productions this year.”Internships, although not required, are highly encouragedwith the university’s strong ties to various artscompanies. CalArts has a partnership with the SundanceTheatre Lab, which many students take advantage of duringthe summer to work alongside stage managers, directorsand playwrights. The school also offers an internshipsponsored by the Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts andSciences, which will subsidize a student’s unpaid internshipwith a production company.“At CalArts, we really stress less of a structuredprogram and more of a professional environment. Weencourage students to be seeking work outside of theuniversity,” Stewart says.42 October 2008 • www.stage-directions.com


DirectingAt the University of Washington’sSchool of Drama, faculty work withDirecting MFA students throughout thethree-year program to help them identifywhere they have maintained connectionsand tailor their professionalnetworks based on their desired locationand market.“We work with them to figure outwhether they need an introduction tosomeone high-profile in the area whomay find them a job in the next year,”says Valerie Curtis-Newton, head of thedirecting program at UW. “The goal isthat we help students make connectionsover their three years, and theydo their own work to develop thoserelationships. In the third year, we givethem the support to help those relationshipspay off.”If a student has a connection at a particulartheatre, faculty will work to bringin someone from that theatre to thestudent’s final thesis production heldat the School of Drama’s main stage.The productions can vary from avantgardeto classical text depending on thestudent’s artistic style, and is the majorevent to invite industry professionals.“Because we’re located so far away, wemake sure there are professional peopleboth locally and nationally who seetheir thesis shows,” Curtis-Newton says.Only two students are admitted eachyear; as a result, there is a lot of one-ononeinteraction with faculty, who arealso working professionals at local theatresas well as across the country. “Allthree of us work nationally, so wheneverwe work, our students have theopportunity to assist,” Curtis-Newtonnotes. “We try to introduce them to ourpersonal professional networks.”ActingThe Acting MFA program at RutgersUniversity’s Mason School of the Artsis an intensely structured three-yearprogram that focuses on prepping studentsfor the “real world.”After two years of solid training inacting, voice and movement, studentsbegin to focus on preparation for theiracting careers. A stream of agents andcasting directors come to the universityto hold practice auditions for students.As a result, students receive feedback ontheir performance from actually industryprofessionals to help improve theirauditioning and interviewing skills.Students spend their third yeardeveloping their showcase presentations,which are three to four minutescenes performed with their fellowstudents in front of a room fullof agents and casting directors. Theshowcases, called “agency nights,”are held both at the university andat a theatre in Manhattan’s LowerEast Side, which gives students aunique setting to perform.The agency nights require enormousprep work on behalf of students, andwith good reason. Deborah Headwall,acting instructor at Rutgers, reports thatas many as 150 agents can come tothe showcases, which take place duringseveral evenings in May.“We introduce them to all the agentsand casting people — that’s very successful,”she says. “They usually endup signing with agencies or gettinglots of meetings to become workingactors.” Check with acting programs towww.stage-directions.com • October 2008 43

Prospective studentsshould know what their careergoals are upon graduation, he says,and what kind of theatrical aestheticthey want to be exposed to throughoutthe program. Playwriting MFA studentsare a “diverse and eclectic mix,”he says. “Many have run small theatrecompanies or worked as actors/directors/performersbefore deciding toget their MFA in playwriting.”Students create networks within theindustry through the playwriting faculty,who all work regularly in theatre.“Every opportunity is made to enablestudents to be in residence at professionaltheatres to watch their professorsat work,” Dietz says.To get their unpublished worknoticed, playwriting students have regularopportunities to present their playsto outside “professional respondents,”Dietz says, including directors, dramaturgesand playwrights who come tothe university to offer critiques andevaluations of students’ work. Studentscan also showcase their work at thebi-annual New Works Festival, which“brings national and professional artistsin contact with our grad playwrights,”Dietz reports.In addition, students have the abilityto see their work turned into UTstudent productions for the Mainstageseason, Lab Theatre season and a programcalled UT New Theater. LocalAustin theatres and annual festivals areother outlets in the region that solicitstudent work. “We expect students toplay a major role in the process of seeingtheir work presented on campus,and strongly encourage them to selfproduce— even on a small scale — ona regular basis,” Dietz says.44 October 2008 • www.stage-directions.com


Special Section: TrainingWhat It Takes To Bea Theatre TeacherThree of the country’s most esteemed instructors share their approaches.By Lisa MulcahyIt goes without saying: To be a teacher, of any kind, is to be generous. An exceptional instructor imparts solidpractice, but the true greats are also eager to share their personal philosophies and life insights with theirstudents. Being a theatre teacher requires these attributes, plus another very important contribution — theirpersonal artistic experiences.What makes the following three teachers extraordinary isn't simply the fact that they each helm highly prestigioustraining programs, have forged lasting bonds with the graduates they mentor, or have honed cutting-edgeteaching methodology. It’s how each of them, as actors, directors and writers themselves, communicate and infusetheir love of live theatre in their students. Here, each of these great teachers talk about how they work.Dennis Krausnick, director of training atShakespeare and CompanySpeaking the SpeechDennis Krausnick's loveof Shakespeare has ledhim to become one of theBard's finest interpreters.A co-founder of the worldrenownedShakespeare& Company training programin Lenox, Mass.,Krausnick and his wife,the company's artisticdirector Tina Packer, andtheir master teachershave developed a uniquemethod that is focused on developing the actor's voice,as well as his/her intellect and imagination. Here he discusseshis training and technique.In NYU's MFA program, I was really blessed with brilliantteachers — Olympia Dukakis and Omar Shapley.I had enormous respect for these people and the factthat they were working actors and directors as well.Because of their example, I never had the idea that ifyou were teaching you were not doing.When I met Tina, she infused me with the excitementand vitality of actor training. In Shakespeare, there isno fourth wall — you must be attendant to the energyof the audience. Having the actor hold both realities —that of his craft and the audience's energy — gives him asense of intimacy with the audience. That's the sensibilitythat's truly developed itself in our program over thecourse of 30 years. In our laptop culture, we've diminishedthe power of our voices. A student in our programspends time working vocally and physically to unifybody, mind and soul. When you speak with the intelligenceof your body, you are speaking more fully andsharply than when you speak solely from the intellect,and the audience receives your spoken word differently,feeling the resonance of their own life experience.The greatest victories as a teacher are the onesyou don't know about. Really, I can't teach anybodyanything — it's not me who teaches a student, it's thestudent who learns, for whom a light bulb goes off ata future time and something they are doing correlateswith something I've told them. That's when learningtakes place.Never teach anything you haven't experienced inyour own body as an actor. Working with my students,I always have questions to ask as I watch them, and ifI think, “This question is too personal,” then that's thequestion I need to ask. This is another step in helpingan actor bring his individual voice to the text.Dennis Krausnick works with a student at Shakespeare & Company’s annual Month-Long Intensive.www.stage-directions.com • October 2008 45


Special Section: TrainingAvant-Garde Meets AcademicsAs director of Brown University’s graduate theatre programin Providence, R.I., Rebecca Schneider has demonstrateda commitment to fusing performance freedom withpractical study. Schneider's philosophy springs directlyfrom her time as an accomplished, highly innovative actor/dancer. Here she explains how she encourages her studentsto stay true to their individuality.I never was an anti-intellectual theatremaker. I'venever made the division between practice and theory.We don't do that in the Brown department — we focusinstead on the well-rounded education.I trained as an actress and as a dancer at NYU. I wascareful to find a college program that served as a crossfertilizationof art forms — one which would split evenlybetween physical training and theatre study. I realizedthat I could both think and do — in the moment, youcan, as an actor, perform as an artist, while at the sametime, use your intellectual skills within that performancework. I learned not to censor — to use anything, anythought or event, within my work. After college, I wasperforming in New York, and it was kind of amazingthat I was successful because some of my performanceart then became pretty out there. But to me, my experimentalexperiences were completely valuable. A failedexperiment is not a failed experience if you learn whatdoesn't work! I believe it's always important to push theboundary of what you know and what you can do.The step between the avant-garde and academia canbe an easy one to take. At Brown, we, as faculty, work hardso that there's no divide between theory and practice.Every single one of our faculty members makes work aswell as teaches, because we don't want our professors tobecome sedentary. It's a safe environment for risk-taking,and I am completely amazed by our great students —they are always eager to challenge themselves!Brown Theatre’s production of Hot ‘N’ Throbbing by Paula Vogel46 October 2008 • www.stage-directions.com


Ellen Kaplan in rehearsal as Stump in A Larum forLondon, an anonymous play from the early 1600s.Teaching In the MomentEllen Kaplan hasalways reveled in hercreative talent — she’sbeen an acclaimedMethod actress as wellas a successful writer. Anoffer to teach then ledher to become the chairof Smith College's theatredepartment. Hereshe discusses the uniqueway she blends scholarlystructure with sheer exuberanceand passes onher enthusiasm to herstudents.As a teacher, obviously,my teachingphilosophy is built first on practical methodology.Spontaneity, though, is a very important element. Ilove to use those moments in class that come fromnowhere to teach — but if I say something or go in anunplanned direction, that spontaneity still grows outof my preparation, out of the fact that I've read everythingI can get my hands on and have planned out myteaching very carefully. It's like learning your lines ina play so well you can throw away the script and havefun improvising!To me, teaching is really allowing my students thespace to learn. I try not to get away from that philosophy,and started thinking I'm the expert — I teach withmy students, giving them all the tools they need, butthen they give back to me. Theatre is a way we canconnect to others. In a prison education program Irecently participated in, a prisoner I was working withsaid to me, “I am you and you are me.” I think that'sthe spark of life, and it's joyous — it's what theatrecan create.I recently acted in a Shakespearean piece in whichI played the clown, who arrives right before Cleopatrakills herself. I told a lot of jokes, but there was also thesurprise element that I was the messenger of deathas well. After this fact was revealed, I was walking offstageand heard someone in the audience gasp — itwas an audible response, showing that what I'd doneonstage was effective. When I teach, I look for thesame kind of visceral responses — a gasp, a laugh, awide-eyed look — and that shows me I have made animpact on my students. And in turn, teaching makesme a better artist!www.stage-directions.com • October 2008 47


TD Talk By Dave McGinnis|Grad School GrindThinking about grad school? Should you be?Ifield a lot of questions from currentundergraduate theatre studentsregarding where they should go forgraduate school. In fact, right aroundthe October mark every year thesequestions seem to thicken around meuntil either I must address them or suffocateand be found under a blanketin my shop. The sad truth, however, isthat there is no easy “here’s-the-bestschool-to-go-to”answer, but there arequite a few questions potential graduatestudents need to ask themselves.1. Why do I want to go to grad schoolin the first place?If you can’t answer this question yet,then you probably shouldn’t go at thistime. Take it from someone who’s beenthere and done it. I started graduateschool at a place that didn’t work forme in a field that didn’t work for me —acting — at a time that I simply wasn’tready. In response, I did the responsiblething and left until the day camethat I was ready.It seems that students today struggleunder the weight of the urge tofinish early at all costs in all things, butgraduate school is not that kind of adecision. To this day, if I have a studentwhom I want to see in my ranks andwho wants to join them, but simplyis not ready, then I tell him/her, “Takesome time and work. We’ll still be herewhen the time comes.”Don’t forget that grad school’s notlike undergrad. Once you finish an MFAin Design, that’s it. You are now adesigner. You might direct, but you’rea designer who directs, not a directorwith an MFA in Design. Undergradhelps us learn our skills; grad schoolhelps us hone our craft.2. What do you want to get out ofyour graduate education?Potential graduate students in theatrecan be broken down into threebasic groups: those who need furthercredentials for work, those who don’tneed anything but want to improveand those who really shouldn’t bethere in the first place.We can obviously move forwardwithout too large of a nod to the lastgroup, as they have no idea what theywant and went to grad school because“it’s what you do.” The other two, however,merit a look.If you are a skilled, possibly evengifted, theatre artist already, thenwhat you may want to focus on islocation. Grad school can be an excellentway to place yourself close towhere the work you want to do is, atleast to start. It kills two birds, essentially— you get to further hone yourcraft and you get to skip that whole“moved to the city with nothing butfloss and a bus pass” phase.For those who know that they wantto hone their craft and do not carein the least about proximity to largemarkets, the task of choosing a gradprogram gets tricky. Without the giveawayof geography to protect one, thepotential student finds himself/herselfhaving to research grad programs oneby one. Some — but not all — of theelements to which I would pay closeattention are faculty backgrounds, seasons,facilities and current students.Check out the faculty. Do their interestsintersect with yours? Remember,undergrad is gone; you should be ableto make this kind of assessment now.I, for one, prefer to work on moreabstract projects, so I likely would notfocus on faculty who knew only classicsand considered all else a waste.They may be great, but we’ll neverlearn from one another.What kinds of seasons do they produce?Do their seasons lend themselvesto expansion of a student’s technicalrepertoire? My lighting designsalways focused on steep angles, harshshadows and bold movements. Thiswould cause a problem in a place thatfocused solely on modern realism. Goahead and feel around among currentstudents of a potential program.Ask them the unofficial questions. Findsome out on your own. Most importantly,trust your gut.All that said, grad school is a time tolearn, just like anything else. As you cantell, I always preferred more abstractprojects, but I should add a disclaimerto the statements above — be willing towork outside your comfort zone. I haveto admit that I learned more about howto execute abstract theatre after I finallymastered those good old classics.48 October 2008 • www.stage-directions.com


Show Biz|By Tim CusackPerfect AttendanceBest practices for small theatres starting up an educational outreach programWhen I was in high school, I wasfortunate to have had a singularlygifted drama teacher whoinstilled in all of her students a love andappreciation for the great writers. Herinfluence on my life was so profound thatwhen I started my own company, it wasparamount that an educational componentbe included as part of its mission.Of course, this was also good businesssense — Theatre Askew’s youthprogram has attracted more financialsupport to date than our artistic endeavors.Ultimately, we do this work becausewe want to give today’s generation ofteens and young adults exposure to theunique combination of teamwork, imaginationand overcoming of emotionalobstacles that only theatre can provide.It’s a big responsibility working with kidswhile making your program also workfor your company.To get some, ahem, perspective froma person who’s had years of experienceworking in educational theatre, I satdown with Melody Brooks, the founderand artistic director of New PerspectivesTheatre in New York City, which started itseducation program before the companywas even incorporated. In 1991, Brookscreated what has remained the theatre’sintroductory series, Shakespeare’s Fools,Leading Ladies and Villains, three individualhour-long performances each focusing onone of those titular archetypal characters.Interspersed with the original textsis a prologue for each scene where theactors, using direct address, talk the audiencethrough what is about to happenbecause, Brooks says, “We don’t changethe language. Ninety percent of what kidsget in school is an updated, modernizedversion, and they don’t ever really get toexperience the language of Shakespeare.”For Brooks, the ideal presentationdoesn’t simplify the material for students,but it does provide lots of guidepostsalong the way and a lot of interaction. “It’sall about giving the kids a personal experience,so it’s not like the audience is outthere and we’re up here,” he says.Coming up with innovative, engagingtheatre programs for young audiencesis only part of the challenge,however. You also have to market, manageand effectively run them. Some ofBrook’s best practices include:Volunteering to go into a schoolyou’re interested in working at andoffering a free workshop for itsteachers. “If you can get the teachersengaged, then they become youradvocates within the school,” Brookssays. She also recommends seekingout PTA contacts and presentingthem with a proposal. They often haveaccess to discretionary funds and cansponsor performances.Diversifying your programming. Inaddition to performances, educators arehungry for other types of experientialarts events, such as acting, playwritingor design workshops. New Perspectiveseven offers a Shakespeare Bootcamp forteachers. Participants can earn credits forthe recertification process that all teachersare required to undergo every fewyears. Be sure to include as part of yourarts educational portfolio a range of programmingthat is suitable for differentage groups. The more options and areasof expertise you can offer administrators,the more likely youwill be to piquetheir interest.P a r t n e r i n gwith higher-profiletheatres. “Ifyou have somethingthat fitswithin the missionof one of the largercompanies, theymight incorporateyou under theirumbrella and sendyour work into thepublic schools,”counsels Brooks.Involving educationprofessionalswhen craftingyour proposals tomeet curriculumr e q u i r e m e n t s .Reach out to yourtheatre’s supportersand find peoplewho are willingto help you writeto the core competenciesyourprogram will needto address.Brooks strongly recommendsscouting out a school before performingand/or teaching at it.Familiarize yourself with its racial andethnic makeup. Make an effort toinclude actors in your program whoreflect the student population — “Wenever send artists into a school who arenot a diverse team because it makes ahuge difference,” she says.Learning when to say no. “If you gointo a school and the teacher is not in theclassroom with you, don’t do it. Insist thatthe school take that responsibility.”Having a financial backup. Brookscautions, “You need to have somewherewithal to survive until you getthe check because sometimes it’s takenus months and months to be paid.”Check with your local theatre servicesorganization, such as ART/NY, to see ifthey offer low-interest or interest-freeloans to cover any short fall, providedyou have a signed contract proving themoney’s on its way.


Off the Shelf|By Stephen PeithmanName DroppersNew books focus on theatre’s great creators — and charactersThis month’s roundup of newly published books focuseson well-known authors and playwrights.For its second edition, Arthur Miller, by Neil Carson, hasbeen revised, expanded and updated in the wake of the playwright’sdeath in 2005. Early plays, such as The Golden Years (1939)and The Man Who Had All the Luck (1944), are discussed, as well asthe more familiar All My Sons, Death of a Salesman, The Crucible, AView from the Bridge, After the Fall and The Price. Carson includesnon-theatrical writings and the later works, including Incident atVichy, The Creation of the World and Other Business and Playing forTime. He makes clear that the playwright spent most of his adult lifetrying to make sense of the events through which he and his friendsand family had passed. That struggle made for some of the greatplays of modern American theatre. [Palgrave Macmillan, $32.95]Edward Albee’s career began in 1958 with what was thena shocking play — The Zoo Story — and has continued to playa major role in American drama ever since. At the age of 80,Albee is still creating works for the theatre — most recentlya prequel to The Zoo Story — and his plays continue to drawaudiences in theatres across the country. In his new book,Edward Albee, Toby Zinman provides straightforward analysesof Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, A Delicate Balance, ThreeTall Women and The Goat, as well as lesser known works. As aresult, the book is comprehensive, yet concise, shedding lighton the playwright’s recurring themes of sex, death, lonelinessand time. [$18.95, University of Michigan Press]OK, let’s face it — not every theatre person is fully conversantwith Shakespeare’s plays, even though most of us are well awareof their importance. To the rescue comes The Complete Idiot’sGuide to Shakespeare’s Plays by Cynthia Greenwood. Wellthought-out, informative and fun to read, it covers the essentialcomedies, histories, tragedies and romances in sufficient detail togive a basic understanding of their plots, characters and themes.In addition, Greenwood discusses Shakespeare’s England, hiswork in the theatre and how the plays came to be published.There’s also insight into Shakespearean performance, a rundownon the lesser-known plays and a glossary of ElizabethanEnglish. It’s an impressive package. [$18.95, Alpha Books]As with Shakespeare, most of us have only a scattering ofknowledge about opera, even though it continues to be a goingconcern on stages around the world. First published in 1961,the newly revised Opera Companion continues to be the mostuseful and enjoyable introduction for beginners and a usefulreference book for opera lovers, devoted or casual. AuthorGeorge Martin focuses first on the mechanics of the art form —overture, melody, aria and recitative; the operatic voice as bothan artistic and mechanical instrument; the orchestra and how itpartners with the singers; and the contributions of Verdi, Pucciniand other great composers. He then provides synopses of 47 keyoperas, a catalog of major works (including lists of composersand librettists) and a helpful glossary. [$19.95, Amadeus Press]Books on great playwrights, actors and directors aren’tunusual, but the role of the producer is often ignored — ortreated dismissively as merely financial rather than creative.However, as former SD Editor Iris Dorbian makes clear in GreatProducers: Visionaries of the American Theater, the truly greatproducers have wielded considerable power, and brought adistinctive style to their productions. She profiles such largerthan-lifepersonages as David Belasco, Florenz Ziegfeld, DavidMerrick, Joseph Papp, Fran Weissler and Cameron Mackintosh,among others — all of whom were (or are) actively involved inevery aspect of their shows. Expertly blending research and personalinterviews, Dorbian isn’t interested in dishing the dirt onthese people, but rather in how they “learned from their errorsand… leveraged their hard-won wisdom into bigger and bettershows.” It’s that ability, she explains, that holds the secret of theirgreatness. The author’s affection for these figures is obvious, asis her interest in the current and next generation of producers.Ignore the lackluster cover — this is an enjoyable and informativeread. [$24.95, Allworth Press]Weary of Webber? Satiated with Sondheim? Hung up onHerman? Perhaps it’s time for Neil Gould’s Victor Herbert: ATheatrical Life, the first comprehensive portrait of an importantbut misunderstood early genius of American musical theatre.Born in Dublin and educated in Austria, Herbert came to the U.S.as a cellist and conductor. He wrote the music for his first operettain 1894, and by his death in 1924, was the acknowledged masterof the form, with such enduring classics as Naughty Mariettaand The Red Mill. In later years, the word “operetta” itself becamesuspect — even though such great Broadway musicals as ShowBoat and Carousel clearly reflect Herbert’s influence. Instead of achronological discussion of the composer’s life and work, Gouldprovides the biography first, then discusses Herbert’s musicaloutput. This has the advantage of first setting the context forthe composer’s accomplishments, but it also means that readersmay find themselves flipping back and forth to clarify certainpoints. That said, Gould’s book is both thorough and enjoyable,and we come away with an appreciation for Herbert’s talent,and his innovation of more closely integrating music and book.[$44.95, Fordham University Press]50 October 2008 • www.stage-directions.com


The Play’s the Thing|By Stephen PeithmanAct Your AgePlays for kids and overgrown kidsThere’s a bit of child in all of us, no matter what our age. So,this month’s collection of recently released plays focuseson plays for and about young people, plus several aboutadult characters who have yet to grow up.Classroom theatre helps young people make importantconnections between acting and reading, writing, social studies,art, music and history as they explore ideas from differenttimes and different worlds. And if you want the best for yourkids, what better source than the master playwright himself?In Shakespeare with Children: Six Scripts for Young Players,Elizabeth Weinstein has adapted and abridged a half-dozenplays for actors aged 8-13. Each piece can be performed in about40 minutes and, despite major cuts, all retain the heart of theirstories as well as Shakespeare’s poetic language. Weinstein’sselection is surprisingly eclectic: A Midsummer Night’s Dream,Macbeth, Henry IV Part I, Twelfth Night, Romeo and Juliet andThe Tempest. She provides a critical overview for each play, aswell as suggestions for backdrops, costumes, props and music.Appendices include a brief biography of Shakespeare, a bibliographyand a sample letter for the students’ parents or guardians.[$19.95, Smith and Kraus]Music Theatre International now offers a young person editionof the musical A Year with Frog and Toad, adapted as asmall-cast, one-act version to be performed by adults for children.MTI has also begun licensing school editions of SweeneyTodd and Rent with lyric and key changes to facilitate highschool productions. (And for overgrown kids, MTI is now offeringMel Brooks’ The Producers.)Pat Jordan’s Every Teacher’s Friend: Classroom Plays, Vol.2, is a collection of 11 short plays based on Greek and Romanmythological characters, such as Pandora, Pegasus, Icarus,Hercules and King Midas. Jordan’s scripts are highly flexible andcan be configured for small or large casts, with a variety of rolesfor lead characters, ensemble or smaller parts, plus optionalcharacters that can be added or subtracted with no complicatedchanges. In addition, there is guidance concerning characters,time and place, props, sets and costumes — as well as a samplelesson plan and help with content area standards conformance.[Players Press]Christopher Durang’s Miss Witherspoon is a contemplativefarce about regaining the faith and optimism of childhood.Veronica, scarred by too many failed relationships andan increasingly frightening world, commits suicide. She findsherself in the netherworld of Tibetan Buddhism where forceskeep trying to make her reincarnate. Chief among these is astrong-willed Indian spirit guide named Maryamma, who dubsVeronica “Miss Witherspoon,” because her negativism is reminiscentof an Agatha Christie–style “bothersome Englishwoman.”Miss W resists returning to the scary world she left behind, butMaryamma calls in reinforcements — Gandalf and Jesus (whoappears in the form of an African American woman in a big“going to church” hat). As a result, Miss W returns to earth severaltimes — including reincarnation as a cranky baby and a ballfetchingdog. In the end, she finds her own way to make senseof life, and finally agrees to return to earth to save herself — andthe planet. It’s over the top, yet remarkably engaging and ultimatelymeaningful in its take on life and death. Cast requires fourwomen, one man, with doubling. [Broadway Play Publishing]Youngsters figure prominently in New Playwrights: The BestPlays of 2007, a collection of work by some of America’s mostpromising new playwrights. BFF, by Anna Ziegler, focuses ontwo teenaged girls — one who comes to a tragic end, and theother who keeps her memory alive by becoming her. The centralcharacter of Dark Play or Stories for Boys, by Carlos Murillo, is ateenaged computer whiz who invents an alter ego in order tolure another boy into his fantasy world. In No Child, by Nilaja Sun,a beleaguered substitute teacher is assigned to the inner cityhigh school from hell, where she must work with the school’smost incorrigible students in order to present a play. The titlecharacter of Kathryn Walat’s Victoria Martin: Math Team Queenbecomes the first girl ever on her high school’s math team —wreaking havoc with the team’s all-male dynamic. Other plays inthis diverse collection include Intellectuals, by Scott Sickles, ThePain and the Itch, by Bruce Norris, and Living Room in Africa, byBathsheba Doran. Performance rights information included foreach play. [Smith and Kraus]Qui Nguyen’s Men of Steel takes the comic book superherogenre and turns it on its head. Its five courageous crusaders areflawed, moody and ambivalent about their powers, and its villainis more interested in making threats than carrying them out.The story focuses on the friendship between Captain Justice anda wealthy playboy named Maelstrom, and their attempt to savetheir neighborhood from an escalating series of violent crimes.Captain Justice’s sidekicks include Bryant — a drag queen witha heart of gold and a body of lead — and Lady Liberty, whomay be another Wonder Woman or merely a public relationsgimmick. Daffy and delightful, Men of Steel requires a fight directorand a strong team of designers for sets, lights, sound andcostumes. Five males, two females, all doubling parts.
