5 Questions with Shanara
Interview with Susan Brall for MD Theatre Guide as the director of A CHRISTMAS CAROL!
“Each creator and craftsperson whom I collaborate with has an influence on my work—each director, each deck crew member, each props artisan…everyone. I’ve also been fortunate to have wonderful mentors in my work as a director and artistic leader who have brought me in to their process openly and championed my work—Joe Hanreddy, Ron Himes, Molly Smith, and Jackie Maxwell. They’ve taught me to be curious and thoughtful in my intellectual investigation, to be bright and to lean-in for rehearsals, to not sweat the small stuff but stay engaged when it matters. The director and leader I am is due to the amazing mentors I’ve had in my career.”
