Personal Quote:

Directors have repeatedly learned, to their cost, that the result isn't as rich or lively when you impose yourself consciously on an actor as when, by some other means, he manages to achieve the effect for himself.

Trivia:

Won Broadway's Tony Award twice as Best Director (Dramatic): in 1966 for "Marat/Sade" and in 1971 for William Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream". He was also Tony-nominated two other times: as Best Director in 1959 for Friedrich Dürrenmatt's "The Visit" and, in 1961, as Best Director (Musical) for "Irma la Douce". See more »
