Inside the London Theater

Experience the range and breadth of London theater: from well-known titles to lesser-known discoveries, the tried-and-true to the comparatively untested, musical theater to Shakespeare. You’ll learn how to see theater and to read and write about it. A willingness to immerse yourself in London’s critical culture and the spectrum of live performance is helpful and expected. Along with lectures and discussions, you’ll get up-front, firsthand meetings with key players in the London theater circuit—directors, producers, performers, and more—who will enhance your understanding of how theater productions and projects develop from the page to the stage. Past guests include a mixture of Oscar and Tony winners and nominees ranging from composer Alan Menken (Sister Act) to musicals performer Gavin Creel (The Book of Mormon), leading British actress Lia Williams (Oresteia, Skylight) to Downton Abbey star Charles Edwards (Blithe Spirit).
