Dear Mrs. Berger

I would like to express my deepest sorrow at the passing of Dr. Berger. My son Steven Metz was a student in the drama department in the 70's and participated in many of the productions, having a lead in School for Scandal and Two Gentlemen from Verona in the Shakespeare Festival. I volunteer in the theatre in Houston and on occasion when I was honored to meet Dr. Berger he always asked about Steve and was interested in what he was doing. My thoughts and prayes are with you and your family.

Sandra --

I was sorry to learn from my brother, Mason Gilfoil, about the death of your beloved husband. After reading the obituary I'm really sorry I didn't know Doc.

I feel like his spirit must be near me now as I am in New York working for FEMA. I'm staying in Manhattan near Times Square and numerous theaters.

Please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Dr. Berger was totally dedicated to his work as a director, and I never remember him openly admonishing any actor in the two HSF productions I worked in when he was directing. He didn't need to do that to get results. A story he always like to tell was during a tech rehearsal for Hamlet, his 5 yr. old son Eric asked him: "Dad, where is God in this play?"

Sandra - I taught today. And in my classes we honored my teacher and mentor. The profound effect he has had on the world's vision of theatre and Shakespeare will reverberate infinitely. I am profoundly saddened by your loss. I loved him.
