• Wes Savick Directs Music-Theatre Experience

8/5/2008

Associate Professor Wesley Savick directs “What the Hell are You Doing in the Waiting Room for Heaven??” at the new Central Square Theater in Cambridge August 13th-23rd.

Savick worked with Deborah Henson-Conant, who created and stars in the one-woman cabaret-style show.

The humorous depiction of the waiting room for heaven employs audience interaction as those knocking at heaven's door try out for the Celestial Choir.

Savick has directed or acted in more than 70 professional productions, almost all new works, including world premieres by Christopher Durang, Shel Silverstein, Derek Walcott, Howard Zinn, and Robert Brustein.

Savick, the founding director of The National Theatre of Allston, has written, co-written or adapted 17 produced plays, including an opera libretto based on the life of Liberace. Two of his plays have been nominated for Best New Play Awards from the National Theatre Critics’ Association. a new company devoted to original, avant-garde political work.
