"It was my first time working in Toronto. Our show's needs were demanding and I was nervous about the casting process. But Lisa and her team are the kind of people who read the material thoroughly and thoughtfully. Every discussion, every session is a warm dialogue with a friend who is rooting for you and your project. Lisa's a visionary whose contributions have only elevated Beyond Black Beauty. I can't wait for us to work together again."
