Pound Ridge Culture Quest
November 18 @ 7:00 pm
Pound Ridge Culture Quest a new series featuring professionals from all disciplines: writing, visual arts and the performing arts welcomes Jeff Calhoun, Broadway Director and Choreographer. When considering the current theme of the series, “How I Got Here,” Mr. Calhoun told us, “There are as many paths to becoming a Broadway director as there are Broadway directors. I was as happy sitting in Three River Stadium watching the Steelers dominate the 1970s as I was sitting in our living room watching Top Hat or The Band Wagon on TV. It turns out that ducking to avoid a harsh tackle wasn’t the correct instinct for my high school quarterback career. However, Ann Miller did need a dancing partner for her production of Anything Goes so, at sixteen, my professional career in the theater began.”
Mr. Calhoun’s professional career in the theater is reflected in his numerous successes on Broadway. He has received several Tony Award nominations for Best Director, including NEWSIES, GREASE for Best Choreography and BIG RIVER for Best Revival of a Musical. Mr Calhoun is an associate artist at The Ford Theater in Washington, DC. He also serves on the Board of Directors for Covenant House International. He recently directed and became an Emmy Award contender for A NIGHT OF COVENANT HOUSE STARS on Amazon Prime.
