hofmag_sp05_schulman

The Secret Garden. Little Women. Violet. The revivals of Sweeney Todd and The Sound of Music. All that, and many more, were directed by Susan H. Schulman, one of the very first female directors of musical theatre. At a time when women were rejected from Yale’s graduate directing program, and told to become actresses not directors, Susan triumphed in New York, and abroad!

 

Susan pulls back the curtain on her career to discuss how she got a bunch of hog farmers into The Hot Box, what was the genesis of her acclaimed revival of Sweeney Todd , and why she slept everyday outside the offices of a producer!

 

Also, Susan shines the spotlight on Hugh Wheeler, Sutton Foster, and Stephen Sondheim!
