In conversation with… Moises Kaufman
Directors rarely get the opportunity to spend time and share ideas in a room with other directors. This new one-on-one conversation series was conceived by director Thomas Kail to give himself, and his peers, an opportunity to do just that. This series of conversations explores topics that stretch from finding the spark in their work, making a life as a director, and how they landed on this side of the table. Each director's vision is distinct, and their way of working is their own, but this series also addresses all they have in common beyond the shared title. In July 2011, Thomas Kail sat in conversation with Moisés Kaufman at the SDC offices. In this exchange, Thomas and Moisés traverse career beginnings, varying paths of directors, and the struggles involved with telling stories rooted in historical events on stage.
