    An award-winning stage director, teacher, and administrator, William Gustafson has been praised by the Denver Post as “a success in every way,” by The Boston Globe for staging that was “lively, amusing, and well worked out,” and as having showed “a well–judged sense of theater” by Opera News.  He has held positions at the New England Conservatory of Music, the University of Colorado at Boulder, and the LIU Post Campus of Long Island University.  Gustafson has earned degrees from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor (DMA, MM), the University of Connecticut (BM), and Long Island University (MBA).
