In this discussion-based seminar we will examine what makes Chicago a leader in American Theater through conversations with its practitioners. Each week, with a Chicago play as our text, guest actors, directors, playwrights, critics, and other theater artists will explain their role in bringing a play to life. Such legends of the Chicago Theater as director Jonathan Wilson, Tony Award winning actress Deanna Dunegan, Chicago Tribune critic Kerry Reid, Steppenwolf’s Even Hatfield, and playwrights Jon Steinhagen and Scott Waldman will join us. Eight sessions.
Todd Bauer holds an MA in liberal studies from Northwestern University and is a playwright and director whose work has been staged in Chicago, Washington, D.C., and New York.
A course pack of additional materials, compiled by the instructor and distributed during the first class, for which there will be a nominal fee.
You do not need to prepare anything for the first class session.
