Sara was recently asked to direct a web series called Diary Of A Chorus Girl about Alex Ellis who is making her Broadway Debut in the new musical Catch Me If You Can. A new Episode will go live every Wednesday through May 18th, 2011. You can find the series at www.danceon.com.
Twelve actors travel across 28 US cities on a seven month journey to bring classical theater to America. The Acting Company, a classical touring ensemble founded by John Houseman and Margot Harley, started with members of the first graduating class of the drama division of the Julliard School. Kevin Kline recalls Houseman’s motivation being, “We couldn’t just let them go out there and do garbage.” In the Company’s 37th season, twelve actors spend seven months on a cramped bus, lose a leading man, play 71 roles, and learn to work in spaces that won’t hold their set. Throughout, they reconnect with their passion for performing, receive a great review in the New York Times, and teach high school and college students a new way to look at Shakespeare. As we follow the actors on tour and watch insightful conversations with Kevin Kline, Rainn Wilson and Harriet Harris, we learn that with the exception of Xbox and Wi-Fi on the bus, not much has changed – and that is just as it should be.
Still On The Road is airing on PBS all around the country. It premiered on New York's PBS station WNET in February 2013.
