The Play Crawl: Directors
Director-Parking Lot Drama> by Linda Berry
Sam is proud to be working on such a great project. Thank you Susan for this opportunity and the trust you've shown me over the years. I have been a fortunate man over the course of my career, working at The Vic, Germinal Stage, and Miners Alley Playhouse just to name a few. I have also been hard working and have earned the credits that I have. I've played some amazing people and have worked with some the most talented actors in this state in every show I have been in. Thanks to them all and of course, as always, my mom. Thank you for supporting the cause.
