"The play never pauses thanks to an energetic, driven production directed by Nancy Murray." John Barry - Baltimore City Paper.
I believe a director's role is to organize and to orchestrate the creative vision of every member of a production team - not just
her own. I read a script wholly dedicated to the vision of the playwright. I approach a set, stage and costume designer to give my conceptual ideas and then I step aside to allow for each individual to bring their specific talent to the task. It is essential that each actor understand their role in a deeply personal way so we analyze the script to find our own connections to it and then we work to communicate that connection to the audience. In the end, I believe a director is similar to a conductor who coordinates an ensemble of talent that blends together with surprisingly harmonious results. It's a beautiful process!
