Earle Gister does Chekhov in New York

(This post is from the blog of the Mother of Invention Acting School in San Francisco ( an acting class in San Francisco for serious, motivated students.)

Hi all,

I was doing some research recently on one of my Yale acting teachers, Earle Gister (class veterans know who I am talking about, I talk about him a lot). Well, anyway, I came across this article about a showcase production of Chekhov's The Sea Gull that Earle is staging:

I found it interesting because the way the production came about is exactly the way I envision starting to produce work with my students in the future.

I know two of the actors mentioned: one Kimberly Ross, was in my thesis production at Yale, and the other, Paul Niebank, was in my class, although we never worked together on a production.

The list in the article of actors Earle has taught is impressive, to say the least.
