MUSICAL THEATRE D'Lynn Waldron, PhD copyright 2011
DLynn Waldron grew up in the world of the Broadway theatre. While still a teenager she rewrote the dialogue and lyrics for revivals of musicals, and translated the opera L'Elisir d'Amore from Italian into the English Prescription for Love for Bruno Frank's production. This translation has been used many times since.
While a teenage Theater Arts student at Boston University, D'Lynn was befriended by the dean of the Boston drama critics Charles Eliott Norton, her Shakespeare professor, and was his companion at opening nights. D'Lynn was offered the opportunity by Raymond Sovey, another of her professors, to become a set and costume designer on Broadway, but she chose instead to travel the world as a writer and artist, foreign correspondent and a documentarian of traditional ways of life.
D'Lynn is now very involved in clasical music in Los Angeles.
