Meet the Directors’ Studio: Jason Schlafstein

Meet the Directors’ Studio   In an effort to continue its vision to provide a training ground for the next generation of theatre artists, the Shakespeare Theatre Company has launched its first-ever Directors’ Studio, a series of workshops and discussions designed to investigate the craft of theatrical direction created for local, early-career directors.

“A timely investigation….I wish I could tell my younger self to read this!”

This winter, STC has affectionately poked fun at the figure that all theatre makers at once fear and admire, laud and condemn, pretend to disregard but actually want to take out for drinks—the theatre critic. In both Jeffrey Hatcher’s adaptation of Richard Brinsley Sheridan’s The Critic and Tom Stoppard’s The Real Inspector Hound, we are able to live out our most ludicrous fantasies about critics—be it that critics gather every morning to compare opinions of last night’s show, or that, well, every once in a while a …

Drewmaturgy: Finding Othello in Morocco

I’m not sure when or why I decided to visit Morocco this holiday season, but I’d like to think it had to do with my experience working on Salomé. The cast was truly international, and meeting and working alongside artists from Syria (Ramzi Choukair and Lubana Al Quntar), Morocco (Ismael Kanater), or Israel (Yuval Boim and Shahar Isaac) made me realize that these places aren’t just abstractions.
