Encore exclusive interview with director of new play
by Rosie Walia, May 26, 2010
“It has been an ensemble collaborative effort,” director Larry Singer explained only minutes after ending Franklin’s final dress rehearsal. Singer, who started his career as, ironically enough, a puppeteer, currently teaches MFA students at Columbia University as well in his own studio and while he “enjoys the steady diet of teaching,” Singer found himself completely at home in the director’s chair, “It’s fun to direct something every now and then.” More than directing however, Singer holds affection for the production of Franklin in particular. “I have never enjoyed myself so much in a production, probably because I knew everyone. It has been rewarding working with them. In fact, I think they’ve spoiled me a little bit. I’m sure I won’t enjoy myself as much next time. Nobody had anything to prove to anybody. We all went into this with confidence in each other, so it has been a delight.” TO READ THE ENTIRE ARTICLE, CLICK HERE.
