“Director Brock H. Hill artfully balances the comic moments with the tragic, and seamlessly transitions from one scene to the next.” : – Dead White Males– Reviewed for Theateronline.com By: Heather Violanti
I am a New York-based stage director. I live for the rehearsal. I've found that my style lends itself well to a wide variety of works. I have a big picture vision with an eye for detail. Allowing a cast to help discover the truth of a piece is empowering and allows for a deeper ownership. I see the director as the painter, blending the colors that a cast creates together into a single vision on the canvas.
Combining that with years of experience in small business consultation and management, I've developed a unique and effective life in Artistic Management. When people are empowered, their work becomes more personal and important...and in the end, better.
