Julie Taymor and BCT- Check out the Connection!

JulieTaymorBCT was thrilled and honored to be mentioned by award-winning Broadway Director Julie Taymor in an interview she recently did with Playbill.com about women in theater.  Here’s an excerpt:

“I did play Cinderella,” Julie Taymor said of her childhood performing in the Boston Children’s Theatre program. “But I turned down Snow White.”

This decision, made by Taymor when she realized she was always cast as the princess but really wanted to play “one of the juicy bad guys,” was indicative of the Broadway-bound child’s future. She would make her own decisions, carve out her own path and refuse to be defined by anyone else. 

She is an inspiration to us all!  CLICK HERE to read the entire article.
