NYUAD Talk: Michael Mayer

Organised by New York University Abu Dhabi Institute

International director, Michael Mayer, creates art across performance fields that demand unique skill sets. Very much an actor’s director, Mayer brings to each project the sophistication of innovation that enlivens actors within singularly impressive set, lighting, costume, sound, and movement landscapes. The Tony Award-winning guest will discuss the essentials in craft that inspire and materialise a director’s vision in each of the art forms in which he has received critical acclaim: theatre, film, television, and opera.

 Michael Mayer is an American theatre director, filmmaker, and playwright.  In 2007, Mayer won his first Tony Award for his direction of the musical adaptation of Spring Awakening, which also won the award for Best Musical. He was nominated for the 2002 Tony for his direction of Thoroughly Modern Millie, which he then directed on London's West End. Mayer also won the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Director of a Musical for both Spring Awakening and Thoroughly Modern Millie.

** The event is free and open to the public.
