With the challenges of directing new work in mind, the two engage in a thoughtful discussion on the elements of a given developmental process. They touch on the importance of table work, the need to establish a common vision amongst an acting company, and how creating a strong director-writer relationship is consistently paramount. Sullivan also discusses his personal directorial strengths, including his tendency to be less vocal in the rehearsal room, determination to be incredibly well-versed in the script, and willingness to be open to new ideas. Listen in to hear about Sullivan’s insightful views and the fascinating directorial experiences that have shaped them.
