Dallas theaters lose a directing titan with René Moreno's sudden passing - CultureMap Dallas

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Dallas, WingSpan, and many others. He was versatile, taking on classical works, musicals, farces, children’s plays, and even some scripts other directors deemed impossible to stage. One of those was Tennessee Williams’ universally ill-regarded The Gnadiges Fraulein, which Moreno turned into a critical and audience hit for WingSpan at the Bath House Cultural Center in 2006. In 2014, he directed a cast of kids and teens in Tom Stoppard’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead at Plano’s Fun House Theatre and Film. Critics and audiences were spellbound at the clarity and comic snap the actors (ages 10 to 15) brought to the difficult piece under Moreno’s direction. Hallmarks of Moreno’s directing style were his attention to detail in all aspects of a production, and his ability to challenge actors to be better, no matter how good they thought they were already. Veteran Dallas actor Pam Dougherty starred in Moreno’s productions of Tracy Letts’ massive family drama August: Osage County at WaterTower and at Oklahoma City Rep in 2010. She called the director “a sculptor” who shaped every moment in a play, but in a way that left room for actors to be creative on their own. Playing a hard-drinking older woman in Contemporary Theatre’s 2012 production of The Night of the Iguana, Dallas actor Cindee Mayfield recalled in an interview that Moreno “challenged me to expand into unknown parts of myself and then supported and encouraged me. It was truly an unforgettable experience. He never lost faith in me." Critics often overused the adjectives “superb” and “brilliant” in their praise of Moreno’s directorial efforts, but only because there were no better superlatives. He won every local award for his work many times over. The DFW Critics Forum, which gathers annually to vote on honors for local productions, began giving Moreno an overall award for his entire season of directing assignments in multiple theaters. It was too hard to choose just one. Moreno had been scheduled to return to WaterTower this spring to direct Karen Zacárias’ Native Gardens, but it was announced a few weeks ago that David Lozano, of Dallas’ Cara Mía Theatre Co., would take over, making his directorial debut at the Addison theater. "We at WaterTower Theatre are deeply saddened by the passing of René,” says the company’s new artistic director, Joanie Schultz, in a statement. “He was an important artist in our WaterTower family, and directed work that had an impact on our artists and audiences alike. His presence is something that has marked us all and will remain with us always.” As news of Moreno’s passing was shared on social media, actors offered their memories of working with him. Indie film star Matthew Tompkins recalled being lured back to the stage by Moreno for Stage West’s The Seafarer in 2009. “What a fantastic, singular, powerful experience,” Tompkins wrote on Facebook. “[René] made all of us … better actors, better people, better HUMAN BEINGS.” “He taught me how to be a professional,” posted Kitchen Dog company member Michael Federico. “Making him laugh (and you had
