or here



If it's true that Richard Armitage will be starring in The Crucible, she will be his director.

April 15 - It's official - Richard will be starring as John Proctor in The Crucible

So very happy for him 

Among the influences she mentions is South African artist William Kentridge


He's an artist whose work I'm familiar with and also like, though of course, not as familiar as Farber. Nor can I fully understand the South African experience, but I feel there's a universal theme in his art about oppression and totalitarian regimes. 

To me his art is challenging, but also can be humorous. 

Kentridge is also a theater director.








How would all of this influence The Crucible and Richard Armitage?
