Arts Sciences alum director Sam Gold's '00 newest project, a Broadway production of “The Glass Menagerie,” opens on March 9. This New York Times profile explores Gold's stripped-down style and approach to directing.
"At 38, Gold is one of the most celebrated theater directors in New York, a master at gently stripping both audience and actors of their expectations and creating a sense of collective interdependence," the story says. "He does this by dispensing with theatrical conventions — showy sets and costumes, a clear separation between stage and audience, acting that titillates or entertains — so that the focus stays fixed on the bodies of the actors and their words."
Gold has received numerous accolades, including the Tony in 2015 as best director for the musical “Fun Home.”
