I learned about Lookingglass through Ed Filer and Clark Hill’s ongoing seasonal sponsorship. Beyond that introduction, Lookingglass intrigues me because its presentations and its Ensemble make one feel and wonder, rather than just being part of an audience.
As importantly to me, Lookingglass is not the mere fancy of people with means. Rather, Lookingglass puts a premium on not only being an unequaled experience for actors and learners, but also to those who come to witness the products of all of the members of the Lookingglass community. This is truly an exciting opportunity and I am gratified to be a part of it.
