Drama and Theatre Arts

The "New York Theatre Event" course has been developed by the Oscar Hammerstein II Center for Theatre Studies. 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.

We’ve established a simple application process for courses offered by the School of the Arts this summer, including courses in Drama and Theatre Arts. Please visit Arts in the Summer with the School of the Arts for details.

THE NEW YORK THEATRE EVENT
THEA4215S001 3 points.

We will be looking at the rich legacy of the Off-Broadway theater – the groups, writers, directors, actors and other theater artists who were nurtured and sustained in its fertile soil, and who continue to shape the landscape of contemporary theater: Off-Broadway, regional theater, and Broadway itself. We will look at the two churches and two cafes where the movement in the 60’s kickstarted as well as the numerous venues, theaters, producing organizations, and producers who continue to sustain the Off Broadway innovative sensibility. We also read and view examples of seminal theater artists and their works: Maria Irene Fornes, David Greenspan, Ntozake Shange, Larry Kramer, Tony Kushner and others. This is a whirlwind journey through Off-Broadway history taught by someone who has been a part of it since the 1970s and has worked with and known many of its players!
