One of the Bay Area’s best critics, Chloe Veltman, interviewed one of the Bay Area’s best directors, Les Waters, in American Theatre this month.
In March 2005, the artistic director of Berkeley Repertory Theatre Tony Taccone asked Les Waters if he’d be interested in staging The Glass Menagerie for the company’s 2005/2006 season…. Taccone’s proposition was met by an unexpected pause from his second in command. “I don’t know,” Waters eventually responded. “I’ll have to read it first.”
