A BIG Red congratulations to Sam Gold ‘00 on winning the Tony Award for Best Direction of a Musical for “Fun Home.” In a past interview with Ezra Update, Gold talked about his transformative years on the Hill: “I got such a solid dramaturgical foundation at Cornell, specifically in David’s (Feldshuh) directing class and a 20th-century [theater] class I took with Bruce (Levitt). I still refer to books they shared with me, and I recall much of their wisdom as I approach a play.” Thanks for making us proud, Sam!
