Mervyn Willis (1942-2019)

It is with sadness that we learned recently of the passing of Mervyn Willis who in 1990, in collaboration with supportive faculty from the University of Rochester Department of English and University leadership, started what we now know as the University of Rochester International Theatre Program. Mervyn was the first Artistic Director of the Program and it is his vision that shaped, directed and, indeed, pushed the UR to aspire to a kind of academic theatre program that remains unique, ambitious, and one-of-a-kind to this day. Mervyn was instrumental in the lives and careers of, and an inspiration to a whole generation of UR Todd alumni. RIP
