Currently, Founding Artistic Producer Michael Scholar, Jr. is living in New York getting his MFA in Directing from Columbia University under Anne Bogart. He is directing/producing work there with November Theatre.
Most recently he directed Uncle Vanya by Anton Chekhov at Medicine Show Theatre.
On August 19th, November Theatre presented the incredible and prolific composer David Rhymer, along with the enchanting chanteuse Onalea Gilbertson at a very intimate salon. Squeezed into the rumpus room of Michael Scholar, Jr.'s home, an audience of 40 patrons were fortunate enough to hear a rare concert drawn from selections of David's songs, pulling from his unique musical theatre and operatic pieces spanning 3 decades. The night was truly magic, and will be a night to remember for all who were there. Click here for pics.
