I happily stumbled upon this video, thank you.  Although I know he didn't meant it this way but when he said that a play 'can turn out much different than where the playwright started,' I get real uncomfortable from past experiences when directors tell the actors to throw out the stage directions (I've learned to try and get them in the dialogue) or actors that tell me emphatically that they know what I meant when they don't
However, it doesn't bother me when I hear it from another playwright.  Over all though those kinds of experiences have been few, thankfully, but once bitten, or twice.
All said, I'd love a chance to get to work with him, though I've a long way to go!!
Sorry to get off topic, it just touched off that little nerve.
