"Love art in yourself, and not yourself in art." So advised actor, director, and famed acting teacher Konstantin Stanislavski.
We will explore the correspondence between art on stage and within ourselves as we enjoy three of the best new productions on and off Broadway.
Honing our understanding of the art of theater and the historical and thematic contexts of the plays we'll see will be CAU superstar Glenn Altschuler, whose enduring interest in contemporary American theater will be clear in his skillful lectures and our lively discussions.
We will begin with an afternoon session at the Cornell Club, followed by dinner and an evening performance. On the following two days, we'll meet in the morning for a lecture and discussion, enjoy lunch together, and attend a Saturday evening performance and a Sunday matinee. We'll immerse ourselves in the liveliest of the arts in spirited New York.
The program fee includes everything but hotel, breakfasts, and Saturday night dinner. Make reservations at the Cornell Club if you're a member, or choose a hotel, a friend's couch, or your very own bed. Reserve your space with a deposit and make final payment for the program after Glenn selects the plays.
