Nicholas Linnehan

Letter of Praise

Re: Nicholas Linnehan
 
 
I had the great opportunity to teach Nick Linnehan from September 2001 through May 2002. Over that period, I came to admire his tremendous courage, compassion and commitment and intelligence. I enjoyed watching Nick’s work improve over this time, but more than anything I appreciated the lessons I learned from him. Though Nick officially finished his course load during December of 2001, he asked if he could continue the class unofficially; he felt he still had more to learn. Even though he was no longer receiving a grade, Nick’s participation in class grew over the second semester. His appreciation for the literature became more refined, his sensitivity to his classmates increased, his own confidence as a performer grew ten-fold. He was always volunteering to take on duties outside of class for the benefit of his fellow classmates, and had excellent observations about their performances. He seemed to me a natural-born teacher himself. He was always helpful, never critical, and was passionately committed to creating his own vision of theater. I had the pleasure of watching a performance of the play he had written and was astonished at the courage and honesty of his writing. Nick approaches everything with such sincerity of purpose. Despite the many obstacles placed in his path, his passion for his work never wanes. I would recommend Nick for anything that he chose to pursue. He is truly a remarkable person, one I am grateful I have had the chance to meet.
