Disney's "Mulan" thunders on to campus, bringing Its story of never

By WIN Wlssert
Weekend Etc. Editor
University President Lee Bollinger
saw the need to attract national and
international theatrical talent to Ann
Arbor - hoping that some of the the-
ater's veterans would stay on campus
long enough to teach their trade for a
semester or two.
He also saw the need for a mid-sized
theater on campus.
The best way to kill both birds with
the same stone? Build a theater in
honor of one of the University's most
famous graduates -- Arthur Miller.
"I called Mr. Miller and he was
very interested - I believe he called
it a 'lovely idea,"' Bollinger said.
"This is a concept he has turned
down many other places, but
Michigan seemed right."
Bollinger, who originally announced
his intentions to build a theater bearing
Miller's name last September, said the
new theater may open its doors as early
as January, 2000.
"It is a high priority for me and, I
think, for the University as well,"
Bollinger said. "We've got a long way
to go, but this is something that is very
Bollinger said a likely model for the
theater is London's 21-year-old
National Royale Theatre.
Special Counsel to the President,
Anne Knott, said the Royal National
fits what "has become the mold for
mid-sized theaters."
A "spartan and intimate theater, lend-
ing itself to being very actor-centered"
seems to be a theme those involved in
planning the Miller theater are shooting
for, Knott said.
The task of collecting information
on the potential theater and nailing

down concrete suggestions that will
eventually go to the president's
office belongs to a University facul-
ty committee comprised mainly of
professors from the Schools of Art
and Design and Music.
Music Dean Paul Boylan, who
heads committee activities, said the
group is scheduled to resume plan-
ning for the Arthur Miller Theatre
early next month after a summer
Last spring the committee reviewed
and endorsed a contact paper on the
potential theater compiled by former
Theater Prof. John Russel Brown.
Brown's 30-plus-page proposal
submitted from New York in
April,outlined his ideas for what the
new Arthur Miller Theatre would
look like, where it should be located
and what types of entertainment it
should hold.
Brown suggests the theater be built
on East Liberty Street at a site that
some call Tally Hall, and others refer to
as Liberty Plaza. That location, the cur-
rent home of cooperate offices for
Borders Inc., features a parking garage
above the building which could house
the theater.
Brown calls the site "ideal," high-
lighting Liberty Street's "welcoming
public face~"
While Bollinger said a number of
sites are still being considered, the the-
ater will likely be built on Central
Campus and that "Tally Hall seems to
be a very effective site."
In keeping with the traditions of
England's National Theater, Brown's
suggestions stress that the would-be
theater feature a small stage and audito-
rium. This design will- heighten the
