The Through Line - Spring 2014

Welcome to the second issue of our newly envisioned academic e-newsletter, The Through Line. On a quarterly basis, The Through Line will keep you informed of the work being done by our students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

In this edition, we give you an in-depth look at our PhD program in theatre history, theory and criticism. Meet Professor Odai Johnson, head of the PhD program, as well as alumna Lisa Jackson-Schebetta. Spring quarter also marks two important departmental events – the undergraduate main stage production and graduation. This year, our undergraduates are led by Tony-nominated director Wilson Milam in Vaclav Havel’s The Beggar’s Opera. And on the occasion of their graduation, two MFA students sit down to reflect on the past three years.

We hope you’ll enjoy learning more about our students and our programs, and we welcome your thoughts, questions, and suggestions. Please get in touch with us at:
