Episode 33: Directing 101

Hosts Benjamin Rexroad and TJ Josza discuss the University of Akron’s Directing 1 class presentation.

“By teaching people to critique, you are giving them that point of view.”

  • “Is it possible to teach directing?” A question from Anne Bogart on her monthly blog
  • “What do you do in directing class?” A question from TJ during the presentations
  • What to do if you don’t like our critique…
