There is 1 comment on In Huntington Theatre Company’s Prayer for the French Republic, BU Alum and Current Student Play Same Character, 70 Years Apart

  1. So great to see what Will Lyman is up to these days. Will and I were fellow theatre student in the sixties. Will was one or two years my junior. We hit it off from the get-go. We enjoyed facing off in the fencing class. Will was a very impressive talent but also a very grounded down-to-earth young man. The production of Richard III he mentions was directed by Lloyd Richards and had Micheal Paul Glazer in the lead role. BU has always had an exemplary faculty. In the sixties it included Robert Hobbs, Ted Kazanoff, John Ransford Watts, and Eliot Norton to name a few. Will, it seems, had the vision that he is passing on to his young cast members, that is that there is plenty of work for actors and other folks in the arts right here in Boston. I met a woman a number of years ago who worked for an ad agency in Boston. I mentioned Will’s name to her and her reply was something like, “Oh yeah. Will Lyman! THE voice in Boston!” I am certain the the young cast members of Prayer for the French Republic gained great insight and inspiration by working with a talent and a person such as Will Lyman.
