In this course students explore the elements involved in the creation of theatre today in the historic heart of American theatre: New York City. The core elements of theatrical craft are discussed: playwriting, directing, acting, design and producing. Aspects of New York theatrical history complement these discussions by exploring the roots and traditions of theatrical practice. While a variety of theatrical forms and styles are explored, this course is rooted in contemporary dramatic texts. Each week students attend a live performance at various venues throughout the city in order to gain insight into the ways that theatre truly becomes a New York event.
