Redirecting My Path And Reclaiming My Voice: An Actor Becomes A Director, Lindsay Rae Taylor Apr 2019

Redirecting My Path And Reclaiming My Voice: An Actor Becomes A Director, Lindsay Rae Taylor

Theses and Dissertations

This thesis is an exploration of my growth as a director. I dissect and discuss five of the seven productions I have directed over the past three years, discovering my directing style and identifying the tools that I will take with me as I shift into my profession. Each chapter describes my preparation, process, and evaluation for every project. It is a reflection of my journey and a celebration of my work.
