Interview: Julie Taymor on A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM; Coming Soon To Cinemas NationwideInterview: Julie Taymor on A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM; Coming Soon To Cinemas Nationwide
by Alan Henry - Jun 20, 2015

Julie Taymor is no stranger to being innovative in the theater. In 1997 she became the first woman to win the Tony Award for Best Direction of a Musical for her production of 'The Lion King.' That same night she also walked away with the prize for costume design. No one had ever seen a production on Broadway that was even remotely similar to 'The Lion King.' Taymor used to great effect techniques she had learned while studying masked dance-drama and puppetry in Indonesia (she had also studied these techniques at the American Society for Eastern Arts in Seattle.) Her combination of stunning visuals and expanded story telling led to an immediate hit - which is still running today and is one of the highest grossing musicals of all time. (more...)
