Notes on a Rehearsal of West Side Story
The Lexington Theatre Company
As observed by Kevin Lane Dearinger
As an art and as a profession, the Theatre depends on relationships. Audience and actor. Actor and director. Dancer and choreographer. Actor and Actor. Cast and designers. Staff and Crew. Producers and Just-About-Everybody. Relationships are, in fact, central to the mission of The Lexington Theatre Company. Producers Jeromy and Lyndy Franklin Smith are artists and teachers. They treat their audiences with respect, and generously foster the talents of their actors and staff; they are family-builders, encouraging collaborations that can generate theatrical performances on a high artistic level.
