The Director as Collaborator teaches essential directing skills while emphasizing how directors and theater productions benefit from collaboration. Good collaboration occurs when the director shares responsibility for the artistic creation with the entire production team, including actors, designers, stage managers, and technical staff. Leadership does not preclude collaboration; in theater, these concepts can and should be complementary. Students will develop their abilities by directing short scenes and plays and by participating in group exercises.

New to the second edition:

  • updated interviews, exercises, forms, and appendices
  • new chapter on technology including digital research, previsualization and drafting programs, and web-sharing sites
  • new chapter on devised and ensemble-based works
  • new chapter on immersive theater, including material and exercises on environmental staging and audience–performer interaction
