DAY 70: Director/Directing Mentor Lisa Peterson
Lisa Peterson's *back* from EXILE (last year's Mentor Project play by Nastaran Ahmadi) for *this* year's SONNETS ON TAP (opening tonight!!). This time she steps into the role of directing mentor to Awoye Timpo who conceived and directs this piece. And as a mentor, what a spectacular source Lisa is to "tap" into... her direction has been touted as "beautiful" and "impressive" byTheaterMania and The New York Times. Her critically-acclaimed and award-winning works include the recent LIGHT SHINING IN BUCKINGHAMSHIRE at New York Theatre Workshop (OBIE award for directing) and AN ILIAD which she directed *and* co-wrote with TONY award-winning star Denis O'Hare. Their adaptation of Homer's classic picked up an OBIE award, Lortel award, and Drama Desk nominations.
Check out the video of this first-rate director for our first-ever directing mentorship.
