Professor Paul Cravath is taking a bow at Leeward Community College after 34 years of guiding and helping students in the theatre arts.
The man, who was such an inspiration for so many students, never took a theater course until he entered a master’s program at Tulane University in New Orleans. He had been in a few plays and “I always played old men,” he said, ruefully.
When asked to describe him in one word, his students expressed their appreciation for Cravath.
