  Theatre director - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A theatre director is a principal in the theatre field who oversees and orchestrates the mounting of a play by unifying various endeavors and aspects of production.
The director, as a position in and of itself, is a relatively new innovation in the history of theatre, with the first examples appearing in the late 1800s and widespread popularity only being achieved in the early part of the 20th century.
Many contemporary directors use a creative amalgam of styles, depending on the genre of the theatrical work, the nature of the project and the type of cast.

 KDHX Theatre Review - Head Games   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Once upon a time, a theatre director wanted to put on a frothy, sexy summer comedy, with a little nudity to help it sell at the box office, to make up for the money he lost the rest of the year doing brain-breaking, emotionally arid works that only he and seven other people really liked.
This theatre director knew that such a frothy, sexy summer comedy with a little nudity would do well at the box office because he had presented just such a play the last time the dog days rolled around, and it had done very well.
And because the director is a very intelligent and clever person, the frothy moments often sparkled with real wit.

 Boal's "Theatre of the Oppressed" Workshops

His explorations were based on the assumption that dialogue is the common, healthy dynamic between all humans, that all human beings desire and are capable of dialogue, and that when a dialogue becomes a monologue, oppression ensues.
While the performance modes of Forum Theatre, Image Theatre, Cop-In-The-Head, and the vast array of the Rainbow of Desire are designed to bring the audience into active relationship with the performed event, the workshops are virtually a training ground for action not only in these performance forms, but for action in life.
