Jo Michael Rezes
38th Annual Elliot Norton Award Nomination
Moved to have been the Assistant Director on the Nora Theatre Company's Cloud 9, nominated for Outstanding Direction (Lee Mikeska Gardner), Outstanding Production, Outstanding Ensemble, and Outstanding Design (looking at you, fellow Tufts Ph.D. Whitney Brady-Guzmán) at this year’s Elliot Norton Awards!
Working with the actors one-on-one in text-based rehearsal on Caryl Churchill's play offered productive development of this work for contemporary, Boston audiences. I'm so lucky to have helped engage this (now award-nominated) ensemble with the craft of representational acting through symbols, metaphor, and the tenets of Epic Theater!
