SCENE Readers Vote BW Music Theatre Chief "Best Director"

Following her stunning direction of the critically-acclaimed regional production of Les Misérables at Great Lakes Theatre in fall 2014, BW's Director of the Music Theatre, Victoria Bussert, is once again a Northeast Ohio fan favorite. Bussert's direction, described as bringing "a vital new life" to Les Miz, earned her Best Director in the 2015 Best of Cleveland awards from Cleveland Scene magazine.

It's just the latest achievement for Bussert, who's also led BW's Music Theatre program to national acclaim. Under Bussert's direction, many BW graduates appear on Broadway, off-Broadway, and countless national tours.

This spring, BW Music Theatre will dazzle in a production of Saturday Night Fever in Playhouse Square from May 1-3. Considering the sheer brilliance of Bussert's direction and BW's talented music theatre students, this production will surely be a "groovy" one to remember.
