Sir Peter Hall on directing

By January 18, 2008No Comments

Sir Peter Hall tells a big­ger truth in a dis­cus­sion about directing:

I’ve worked with prac­tic­ally all the great dir­ect­ors, alpha­bet­ic­ally, from Bergman to Zeffirelli. It’s won­der­ful to be involved in the mys­tery of oth­er dir­ect­ors’ work, because they’re all different.

But most will know with­in the first three or four days wheth­er it’s going to work. The inter­est­ing thing is when it’s wrong they have to go on and they can­’t tell any­body it’s wrong.
