This title offers insightful interviews with stage-to-screen directors on how they achieved their artistic success. It includes a foreword by Emmy award-winning screenwriter Steve Brown. It is an essential resource for scholars, aspiring filmmakers, theatre aficionados, and film enthusiasts.

Despite the increasing popularity of academic filmmaking programs in the United States, some of contemporary America's most exciting film directors have emerged from the theatre world. "Directors: From Stage to Screen and Back Again" features a series of interviews with directors who have transitioned from work on stage productions to work in television and on full-length features. Taken together, these interviews demonstrate the myriad ways in which a theatre background can engender innovative and stimulating work in film. As unique and idiosyncratic as the personalities they feature, the directors' conversations with Susan Beth Lehman range over a vast field of topics. Each one traces its subject's personal artistic journey and explores how he or she handled the challenge of moving from stage to screen. Combined with a foreword by Emmy Award-winning screenwriter Steve Brown, the directors' collective knowledge and experience will be invaluable to scholars, aspiring filmmakers, theater aficionados, and film enthusiasts.
