Notes From Francesca

I’m currently in Switzerland, directing a new production of Rebecca (which you can see on Broadway this coming spring), but as always I have Glimmerglass on the mind. So below is my list of recommended reading for the year leading up to our 2012 Festival.

I’ve linked to the books on Amazon. I hope you will take some time to become familiar with our 2012 Festival shows, and let me know what you think of the reading selections!
