How to Watch a Play

Taught by Adam Immerwahr and Chad Kinsman

Thursdays 2:00 – 3:30 PM
October 15 – November 12, 2020
Free for Theater J Ushers
5 sessions

What does a theater professional “see” when they watch a play? Deepen and enrich your experience of the live theater with the techniques and approaches that theater professionals use. From evaluating a production’s concept to unpacking the staging choices, develop your theater reviewer’s “toolkit” in lively group discussions. Students will watch recorded productions (from a range of companies across the country) before each class and then unpack them as a group under the guidance of Theater J’s Artistic Director and Director of Patron Experience. Some purchases of online viewing may be required.
