The Song Beneath The Song” -
A Directing Workshop with Tony Phelan
Acclaimed director, writer and showrunner Tony Phelan (“Madam Secretary,“ “Doubt,“ “Detransition Baby”) came to international attention with the famed musical episode of ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” called “Song Beneath The Song,” in which he directed a cast that included Tony winner Sara Ramirez, Tony nominee Daniel Sunjata, and the star of Broadway’s upcoming revival of Take Me Out, Jesse Williams. In this intimate behind-the-scenes directing workshop, Phelan, an Emmy nominee and member of the Drama League Directors Council, will share personal storyboards, camera techniques, and life lessons he has used throughout his career to tell powerful stories in the medium of television.
(For an optimal experience, attendees should make themselves familiar with the episode prior – Season 7, Episode 18 – which is available on Netflix and other platforms.)
