Defining America: The Story of Theater in the U.S.

Jeffrey Ullom
Associate Professor of Theater, CWRU
Landmark Centre Building
Thursdays, March 19-April 23
1:30-3:30 p.m.

American theater has an inferiority complex, but is it deserved?  In this course, we’ll look at the founding of theater in the United States and how it was used to reflect American society with all of its trials and tribulations.  Furthermore, we will study how artists began to find their own voice and create a distinct form of theater that is “American.” By exploring and discussing the development of American theater, participants will gain an appreciation for its unique history as well as a critical eye toward the craftsmanship and artistry involved in creating American theatrical entertainment.

Fee includes both Senior Scholars Thursdays courses: Our Built Infrastructure: Technological Design and Construction AND Defining America: The Story of Theater in the U.S.
