Re: “You be the judge:
Nominate works for Indy's Best Theater 2010!

I feel compelled to mention something i shared with the cast of To Kill A Mockingbird at Burning Coal this past summer. "I will measure my life as 'before' and 'after' this experience." I have never been blessed with a theatrical experience that boasted more generous cast and process - the entire production came completely alive, fueled by the recent events in the Wade County school district, as well as the history of the Murphey School in which Mockingbird played. As an ensemble, we all quite simply fell in love with each other and with the people of Maycomb, Alabama - the closing performance brought us all to our knees, humbled by the experience and wanting it to go on forever. All this is due to the open heart of the people of Raleigh, anxious to see a classic loved story in a new way that brought them closer to characters they already loved, and the tenacious, fervent desire of Jerry Davis and Burning Coal to bring a visceral experience to a hungry audience. And of course, Randolph Curtis Rand, whose masterful direction insisted that we own our own story in order to bring the audience theirs, will stand for the rest of my life as an artist who embodies trust - trust of self, trust of actors, trust of story, and most of all, trust in the hearts of the people in the dark. We all were exceedingly grateful that the response of the community was as powerful as our own experiences.
