As a producer, I have hired more than 75 highly-trained professional artists to direct, teach and mentor young artists. Liisa Ivary is extraordinary! Truly a gem, Liisa brings enthusiasm, rigor and focus to every creative and artistic endeavor. As a teacher and director, she sets high expectations and then supports her actors so beautifully as they learn to command the stage. She also possesses a strong, expressive voice! Her skills are so impressive as a actor, dancer, movement director, dialect coach and yes, "Master of Comedy." Over the years, Liisa directed 5 excellent productions hailed by all as total successes by her companies, our students and our audiences. She has my highest recommendation!
