meeting DHH

October 23, 2010

I have long been a fan of playwright David Henry Hwang. Directing YELLOW FACE, being in contact with him as we were working on the marketing, casting, rehearsals and previews, and having him join us this weekend at the production goes into my box of “favorite experiences EVER!” I’ve learned so much about directing by working on his brilliant script with the excellent group of designers, stage management and actors we assembled. But I’ve also learned so much about generosity and graciousness by spending time with DHH. He was patient with my directorial questions, generous with his time, and when he said he loved the production, well, it put me on cloud nine.

And as proof that this all happened:

In the words of HYH in YELLOW FACE, “Ahhhh, beautiful.”
