Director’s Brief

Director’s Brief

Karen Azenberg

It was a very busy week in New York! Newsies auditions. We saw about 250 actors over four days of auditions. Some truly incredible talent.

I also had an exciting meeting with the design team for “i.” I think this will be a visually stunning and surprising production. I promise to share the preliminary designs when I have them.

I luckily got a chance to spend time with some of the cast of last year’s The Last Ship — Bryant Martin, Dan Sharkey, Kilty Reidy, Jaymes Hodges and Lenny Daniel. A fitting reunion, since it was one year ago this week that Sting came to see the show!

I’m back in Salt Lake now, checking in on The Curious Incident. It is so wonderful to hear how much our audiences are enjoying this play and how affected they are by it. Only three more performances, so get your tickets now!

The cast for A Comedy of Tenors has arrived and our first Play-By-Play reading, Perpetual Girl starts rehearsals on Monday, with performances next Friday and Saturday – we hope you can join us.
