Live Arts is bringing a Thornton Wilder
classic to their Downstage. I had the oppurtunity this past weekend to talk with the director, Mendy St. Ours; the acting couch/assistant director, Carol Pederson; the set designer, Mary Butcher; and 5 of the actors (of a cast of 18), Chris Patrick, Casey Wagner, Ronda Hewitt, Denise Stewart and Chris Baumer.
Will Slusher, the assistant set designer, who Mary Butcher says was “an incredible asset to the show – indispensable to the design and construction of the set,” was busy with the table saw during this interview.
This Thornton Wilder farce opens at Live Arts Friday March 6, 2009.
March 6 to March 28
