Stage Director

Philip Glass’ Galileo Galilei – Boston University (2004) – Boston Herald

The 90-minute work, which premiered in 2002, arrived in Boston last night as part of this year’s Boston University Fall Fringe Festival. And the performance, under the leadership of director James Marvel was nothing short of brilliant. Marvel’s direction was – well, it’s true – a marvel of style and economy, which took Galileo’s once revolutionary idea that the earth revolves around the sun as a basis for staging without being heavy-handed. And Chaffee’s charming choreography was integrated seamlessly, a credit to both artists.
