Excerpts from a testimonial by the creators of Sunfish: Hyeyoung Kim (Music and Book) and Michael Cooper (Lyrics and Book):
"Working with Will Pomerantz on "SUNFISH" was one of the most illuminating creative experiences of our career...
He addressed core dramaturgical problems that we had struggled with for nearly a decade and suggested smart, specific, workable solutions...
When challenged with the nearly impossible task (of mounting this show within a very short time period) Will remained calm, focused, and consistently managed to raise the bar for everyone...
What we managed to achieve together in such a short period of time was nothing short of theatrical magic.
Will works fast and furiously, arriving at every rehearsal with a sparkle in his eye and a sense of wonder and excitement that is completely infectious.
He has an effortless way of clarifying musical storytelling and a true eye for simple, startling stage pictures.
Collaborating with him on "Sunfish" an experience we will never forget."
Hyeyoung Kim and Michael Cooper
