English 492/592: New York Drama Course

English 492/592 is a chance to see and study some of the most exciting current work in American theatre. The course is a Spring 2016 semester credit (3 hours) with an off-campus component from Dec. 11-19 and then individual tutorials in the spring. The course requires attendance at all of the plays and class meetings while in New York, tutorials when we return, a journal, and a short research paper due in February. Students will have free time during the day and “open” theatre slots for additional shows. Currently, we have tickets to The King and I (with a private talk-back after), Fun Home, Hamilton, Thérèse Raquin, Charles III, and new work at The Flea in TriBeCa. We will see approximately 8 plays in 8 days. The course fee includes all theatre tickets and housing at the Vanderbilt YMCA in midtown. Students are responsible for tuition, transportation, and meals. Contact Dr. Misty Anderson at to get on the list.

An interest meeting will be held on September 17th at 4:00pm.

The cost of the program is $1395, but some scholarships are available through the Keith P. Taylor Student Drama Enrichment Fund.  Complete information about the program and scholarships can be found in the New York Drama 2015 information packet.
