The Art of Directing With Broadway's Bartlett Sher and Sarna Lapine
The directors of this season's Oslo and Sunday in the Park With George dig into their successes, failures, and unique perspectives.
Welcome to the inaugural episode of Artist to Artist, TheaterMania's new series that pairs artists from the Broadway community for conversations on their common craft. It's a platform that gives them space to ask each other questions, reflect on their greatest successes and defeats, and share their personal philosophies on how to make theater.
We're kicking off the series with Tony-winning director Bartlett Sher (The Light in the Piazza, South Pacific, Fiddler on the Roof), who helms the new political play Oslo at Lincoln Center, and his former mentee Sarna Lapine, who makes her Broadway debut this season with her revival of Sunday in the Park With George. Watch and listen in as they look back on past collaborations and describe their approaches to the art of stage directing.
