I've posted my director's notes from nearly every production I've directed since leaving school on the site. There are some readings I've done that I didn't do notes for, but I was pleasantly surprised to be able to find the vast majority of my thoughts. Please enjoy, all notes are published with the opening date of the production.
There’s a whole lot of anger in the world right now. I feel like every time I turn on the news, open up my social media, or stand in line at the grocery store, I’m assaulted by waves of hatred and negativity. And while it’s important to be caught up with current events and fight passionately for the things you believe, at a certain point, we all just need a break. So that’s what we’re doing tonight, taking a break and entering a world where love and a good dinner are the most important things in life. Tonight we’re going on a journey to a magical realm called: Comedy.
That isn’t to say that A SERVANT OF TWO MASTERS isn’t relevant material to today’s world. One of the things that drew me to this play is the freedom it gives the cast and creative team to react to current events, and in many ways it was already ahead of its time. We’ve had an exciting, chaotic, time putting this little show together for you. I hope you have a whole lot of fun.
