Judith Blazer et al. Establish "The Artist's Crossing" Theater Company/School
In addition to Blazer (who recently played the Beggar Woman in the New York City Opera production of Sweeney Todd), The Artist's Crossing's first company includes actors David Garrison and Malcolm Gets, director Tina Landau, opera singer Lee Merrill, and music director and composer Joseph Thalken. Completing the staff are Joseph Bates, Jen Bender, and Landon Scott Heimbach. They will work with a select group of students in group classes, private lessons and coaching, personal consultations, conversations at meals, and rehearsals for a public presentation on July 24 in which both the teachers and students will perform.
