Music Theatre Chair Scott Plate Commands Stage in "Seminar"
A rave review for BW Music Theatre chair, Scott Plate, who's spending the early part of his summer playing Leonard in the regional premiere of "Seminar" at Beck Center for the Arts.
Andrea Simakis reviewed the play for the Cleveland Plain Dealer: "As Leonard, Plate, who chairs the music theater department at Baldwin Wallace University, commands the Studio Theater stage with malicious joy; he is a lion moving among a shivering herd of gazelles. They know he could draw blood any moment but are too terrified to move."
"A shrewd director and equally intelligent performer, Plate gives Leonard an air of exhausted genius, a heavy-lidded, I'm-so-much-smarter-than-you-I-could-teach-this-class-in-a-coma quality."
Seminar runs through June 29.
