The goal of my Senior Independent Project at the Magic Theater was to broaden my practical experience of directors and directing through the observation of a director at work and participation in a professional production. As I planned, and still plan, to continue in my education and experience as a director, this kind of active learning is invaluable. In the following pages, I will describe the specifics of my involvement in a professional theatre production of Jaques and His Master by Milan Kundera, as adapted from Denis Diderot's Jaques le Fataliste et son Maitre; an analysis of the director, Harvey Seifter, and his particular directing style, identifying the aspects of the production that went well and those that didn't; and, finally, how these observations apply to a broader picture of the director and their work.
