A gift to be directed by William B. Hutt. We worked together in Stratford  in Much Ado About Nothing. I was then offered the tremendous opportunity to be directed by Bill in Twelfth Night with The Advanced Actor's Workshop. Respected his attention to the text and the finer details in performance. Every day with him was a masterclass in acting.
