What is it like working at the elbow of the theatre's most acclaimed and sought-after directors? Some answers may be found at the Stage Directors and Choreographers Foundation's May 5 panel, "Meet the Assistant Directors." Telling of their experiences will be Lisa Shriver (who has worked aside Lynne Taylor-Corbett and Susan Stroman), Terry Berliner (Susan Schulman), Dan Fields (Julie Taymor, Mike Ockrent), and Jules Ochoa (Christopher Renshaw, Des McAnuff).
Registration is $10; the event is free to members of the Society of Stage Directors and Choreographers. The seminar begins at 5 PM at the foundation offices at 1501 Broadway, New York City. For information, call (212) 302-5359.
