The Theater Today
Hybrid: both remote and in-person enrollment
The Theater Today. Introduction to major areas of research in Theater Studies with focus on specific theoretical and creative issues of contemporary concern in various disciplines of theater study. One course.
Theater is a live art in which an assembly of people (some working on stage and some off) tells a story to another assembly of people, the audience. This course approaches this art from two interwoven perspectives. One treats plays as artifacts as past performances that can teach us about the fascinating history of theater. The other treats plays as blueprints for future performances and culminates in a show of our own.
