The Play's the Thing: When the Curtain's Not Yet Fully Up

Broadway and Off-Broadway have numbered among New York City’s many heartbeats for years. From the time of its origins, the death of theatre has been foretold, yet the theatre always survives—through recessions, world wars, 9/11—and it will surely survive the present pandemic as well. In the meantime, in this online course, view (on your own) specially selected recorded theatrical performances that feature the best and most-accomplished theatre artists working today. During each Zoom class session, combinations of lectures and lively discussions illuminate and deepen what you have just seen. On several occasions, there will be guest participants, all working professionals culled from every aspect of the theatre world.

Tuition does not include the cost of attending online performances (not all performances charge an attendance fee).
