Its his first comedy role although first drama class grads Are ready to face world by William Glover a drama writer new York a can the class that plays together St a together that a the question now confronting the first or a graduates of renowned Juilliard school. As John Houseman says a it s a very Tricky Houseman an urbane fomented of Many major theatrical ventures during the past Quarter plus Century set up the innovative program which Aims at annually turning out a a a rounded ensemble of performers after four years of i depth training. A we take enormous pain to keep a girl from freezing into a Kansas City ingenue and to not have a handsome youth play All the romantic the director says in stressing the purpose of versatility. Just How effectively this academic artistic theory works was disclosed during a recent series of Public performances by the 18 survivors of the 32 hopefuls who launched the Juilliard theater division in 1%8 press critics loudly praised the troupe s ability to Range from restoration elegance to can Modem. Craft professionals voiced highly favourable reactions. A we wanted to see if we were As Good As we thought we were a Houseman says. A until we were certain we did t dare explore too Between now and springtime graduation moves Are afoot to establish some sort o f permanent organization for the ensemble. As far As he knows this is the first time an attempt has been made to keep a student group intact after graduation an advantage of a deliberately Small class. A i think they Are Good enough to fill the function of a Young touring company which is needed in this country and which none of the troupes in existence can provide a says Houseman with a glance at regional Enterprise.

A there Are numerous feelers for Legal or other technical reasons a functioning postgraduate entity might simply have to adopt a name like the company with word of Mouth As the solid reputation link to the High prestige music institution origin. The drama vision was established when Juilliard became part of Lincoln Center for the performing arts. As envisioned by Houseman each years a rounded ensemble upon emergence from the student cocoon would merge into the yet to be organized permanent setup. Normal attrition would keep the company from ultimate unwieldy obesity. A we would t want any monastic the director Points out. A people could leave and come Back Over the the potential advantage of permanent association Over individual Job dispersion after graduation the usual Fate of drama school alumni is to Houseman t h e qualitative contribution that could be made to Cross country theatricals. A there s a great hunger for such drama and no Way of satisfying it now a he says. The Juilliard thespians last year began performing Short programs for High school audiences All Over new York state As part of training. The about to graduate ensemble is test marketing among a More mature clientele during february and March with University visits to Cambridge mass. Princeton . Ann Arbor Mich. And Toledo Ohio. What sort of drama the company might eventually specialize in is the least of his worries. A i m concerned with them being Able to do every style of theater a Houseman underlines the training purpose. If they want to do Street theater that s Okay As Long As Thev can also do the classics. You atrophy otherwise besides i think you do Street theater better if you can do the Houseman began stirring up i see first drama on i a he a known around Hollywood As a genuinely funnyman. He was talking to Neile the sex dancer who is mrs. Steve Mcqueen and plays Burts deaf mute wife in a fuzz a and they were talking about Burts old series. He a done four of them a riverboat gun smoke Hawk and last seasons Dan August. A i never even heard of Hawk a Neile said. A i must have been out of the country a you could have been out of the room and missed it a Burt said. He thinks it was his time Slot that mined him with Dan August. The show was opposite Hawaii 5-0. A Given the Choice of Jack lord in Hawaii or me in Oxnard a he says. A a in a watch Hawaii 5-0 he believes that the time Slot is the All important thing on to. And he Points to Marcus Welby As exhibit a of his theory. A we lbs is a Good show a he says a shut it has no opposition. In that time Slot you could have somebody peeling bananas and get a top 20 at the moment he a not interested in another series. He won t Rule out the possibility completely of course but head rather not he does no to think television is a Good medium for actors. A comparing to and the he says a is like this. Suppose you sit Van Gogh and Picasso Down and you say a Vincent you have 15 minutes to paint a picture. And Pablo give yours to me when its finished a to is like giving Van Gogh 15 minutes but movies Are done when they re finished. Not to a schedule a he says there should be sub title on to screens but a particular kind of subtitle. Quot they would read something like this a he says.
