Austin Tichenor‘s production of Much Ado About Nothing closed its four-performance run last weekend at Pacific University in Oregon, and on opening night, department chair Ellen Margolis conducted a Q&A where they talked about conceptual and dramaturgical choices, the importance of authorial intent, the value of children’s theatre, a weirdly progressive alternative universe 1950s, recycling musical settings, academic approval, acting between the lines, breaking bad habits, and the great text-supporting freedom of casting without regard to gender. We are the only love gods! (Pictured l-r: Trevor Harter, Garrett Brown, Haley McKinnon) (Length 23:05)
