International director Michael Mayer creates art across performance fields that demand unique skill sets. Very much an actor’s director, Mayer brings to each project innovation that enlivens actors within singularly impressive set design, lighting, costumes, soundscapes, and movement. The Tony Award-winning director discusses the essentials in craft that inspire and materialize a director’s vision in each of the art forms in which he has received critical acclaim: theatre, film, television, and opera. 

Please note that Michael Mayer's film of Chekhov's The Seagull will be screened on November 14. RSVP HERE.
