DRAMA H649 — American Theater Landscape
Students explore the history and current offerings of New York, and regional theaters. Students examine plays (from a dramaturgical viewpoint), meet guest speakers, and see productions, thereby gaining wide exposure to New York City theater, as well as a solid understanding of the regional theater network.
Each week students will study the regional theater movement during a select time period, focusing on the history and contributions of one or two influential theaters of that time. Small groups of students will be assigned to research one theater, play, or playwright connected with each time period and present materials to the class. When applicable, students will also examine a current play being produced at that theater from a dramaturgical viewpoint, exploring its historical context as well as its relevance today.
