Summary
After spending ten years in international Directors Lab programs--first in New York and Chicago, then co-founding Directors Lab North in Toronto--Evan Tsitsias has amassed an extensive amount of advice, examples, and notes that prove essential reading for theatre creators and artists across disciplines. Combined with master classes and interviews with established, emerging, and mid-career directors, this manual is an artistic, logistic, and pedagogical exploration into the mechanics of theatre creation through the perspective of a director. With so much useful material, readers become honorary "labbies," ready to leave their own mark on the theatrical landscape
