American Theatre features MADIE DOPPELT (BFA, Playwrighting, ’20), LISA PORTES (Faculty) and REBECCA WILLINGHAM (MFA, Directing, ’22) in discussion of how Zoom will revolutionize today’s college theatre programs.
“Portes remains confident that the theatre community will pull through. “The good news is that we’re creative,” she says. “We’re a creative field that is built on people collaborating together to figure out how to make things—and that’s what we’re doing.””
The Chicago Tribune features ADAM CRAWFORD (BFA, Acting, ’20) KYLE CUNNINGHAM (BFA, Lighting Design, ’20), VICTORIA DEIORIO (FACULTY), COYA PAZ (Faculty), JUSTEN ROSS (BFA, Acting, ’21), KEIMON SHOOK (BFA, Acting, ’21),
“It goes back to this question of, either we think our work matters or it doesn’t. And if we think it matters, it matters now as much as it did last week,” Paz said.
“As artists, it’s our job to mirror the world,” Ross said. “And if we’re not tapped in, we can’t mirror it successfully. So I think this is, if anything, good, because it shows everybody that we’ve got more work to do.”
