I was doing some research recently on one of my Yale acting teachers, Earle Gister (class veterans know who I am talking about, I talk about him a lot). Well, anyway, I came across this article about a showcase production of Chekhov’s The Sea Gull that Earle is staging:
I found it interesting because the way the production came about is exactly the way I envision starting to produce work with my students in the future.
I know two of the actors mentioned: one Kimberly Ross, was in my thesis production at Yale, and the other, Paul Niebank, was in my class, although we never worked together on a production.
The list in the article of actors Earle has taught is impressive, to say the least.
