Conversation with Stuart Ostrow by Sidney L Berger( Visual )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Sidney Berger noted that the University of Houston is an active and valued part of Houston in the area of musical and non-musical theater with great theater facilities. The vision is to create new theater. Students must be trained not only to become consumers of art, but to produce, write and act in the theater. Stuart Ostrow said that his commandments as a producer are: producers must know their writers' works; loud is good; and always celebrate being in the theater. Risk taking is good for theater, never knowing when or how a play unfolds. Ostrow wants to surprise people and produce shows that they thought impossible to produce. He wants to discover what has not been written before. Theater should change your life. Two generations of song writers, since the Beattles and Bob Dillon, have been lost to musical theater because today's song writers do not write songs with lasting quality. Collaboration in musicals is difficult. Ostrow wants to integrate professional artists with student artists in musical theater, so that students can learn from the best
