SF State Stars Rise with West Coast Premiere of Rock Musical 'Yeast Nation'

Wednesday, October 01, 2014
GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- It’s a tale of two SF State actors; an alumna and student rejoining their craft in their roles as mother and son as they traverse through the beginning of life in the production of “Yeast Nation (the triumph of life).” Juliana Lustenader, who graduated from the University in May 2013, and David Glazer, a Drama major, come together again after performing in the University’s production of “A Chorus Line” last fall. While Glazer only recently transferred to SF State and is still learning about theatre in his classes, Lustenader said she greatly benefitted from her time at the University and credits her knowledge of the field to what she learned from professors in the department. “I take everything I learned in all those classes and apply it to all my auditions,” Lustenader said. “There’s nothing that I learned at SF State that was superfluous.”
