“Film directors should jump at any chance to direct a play because it can improve their relationship with actors. What’s wonderful about theater is that you get to move the actors around and stage scenes. You don’t have to worry about things like flattering closeups or intricate lighting. Theater features an actor from the top of his head to his toes while television is just the waist up and movies concentrate on the face and eyes. Directing a play gives you a chance to move the whole body around.”
