I like to think of myself as an organic director. I absolutely love and honor the process of directing. I am passionate about every single aspect of directing; and take every detail seriously. I relish the collaboration with designers, actors and being the captain of a ship that sets sail over challenging waters.

I choose to avoid having a “style.” I’d rather not have someone say, “Oh, this show has the mark of Kay Cole.” I’d prefer to allow each production to grow naturally from its own source. I adore taking all the creative elements I have at my disposal and giving them permission to morph into its own unique entity.

I welcome the challenge of mounting an established theater piece and giving it a fresh new perspective. And I am particularly keen on directing brand new pieces, sitting with the authors and absorbing their viewpoint and really striving to give them the most sterling presentation of their new work.

I have been an actor most of my life; working on Broadway and national tours from a very early age. I have a really good sense of what makes shows tick. I have the utmost respect for actors and I cherish the unique evolution each actor makes as they set out to reveal their magic.

Most of all, I revere theater. I am eternally grateful for the experiences I’ve had as both actor, director and choreographer. I thrive on discipline, and yet I realize there are times when we all need to sit back, reflect and be grounded in what we’re trying to accomplish.

Thank you for taking the time to consider me.
