Tony Winning Directors

Harold Prince

John Weidman, Jacquelyn Ritz, Harold Prince, Nick Ritz Daugherty and Tom Daugherty backstage at Bounce Kennedy Center 2003.

The experience of learning from and watching Hal for a year helped shape who I am as a director.  On the very first day, just before the very first read thru, Hal said, "I hate timid actors. Go for it!"

Rachel Chavkin

Matt Gould, Jacquelyn Ritz, Rachel Chavkin Lempicka, La Jolla Playhouse 2022

Rachel is a true visionary, collaborator and leader.  In tech she asked the SM how much time we had left, he said, "Seven minutes."  She said, "Great, everyone up on stage to work the revolution." She didn't waste a second.
