“Ted worked for me at Seattle Rep in the 1990s as the head of Education and Outreach and he proved to be a triple threat in the job: an exciting teacher, a director of lively intelligence and great visual flair, and a gifted writer. We were lucky to have him and I wouldn’t hesitate to hire him again if, God forbid, I found myself in charge of another theatrical institution. He has a genuine passion for teaching and directing. Aside from his dedication and craft, Ted has the quality most important to a productive life in this profession: a deep and abiding curiosity.” -Daniel Sullivan, Former Artistic Director, Seattle Repertory Theatre
“Professor Sod was a galvanizing presence throughout the term. He is clearly a professional with a wealth of information garnered through an impressive directing career. The students were excited and responsive throughout the session. This was an excellent class.” -Thomas Bullard, Department of Theatre, Brooklyn College
