"Unlike previous editions of Divine Imagination, this Theatrical Creativity edition is very dear to my heart as an avid theater and opera fan. My own familiarity with Mary's work over the past decade, in both theater and opera, gave me a deep appreciation for her creative process that made for an effective interview. Plus, she was so gracious and generous to grant us this interview and to grant our listening audience access to the rarified world of directorial creativity. Her incredible stories and insights are a must-listen to anyone who contemplates a career in theater, or has any Curiosity about any type of live performance."
