Course Description: This course taught by Shawn Lewis, artistic adviser and scenic designer of our MFA Program's Repertory Season, in association with the acclaimed scenic and costume designer Tony Walton, delves deeply into the artistic collaborative process of theatrical design. Walton created this course to celebrate the real-life procedures and problems that theatre artists face in the course of developing and presenting a show. Prominent designers from the Broadway theatre are invited to share their unique methods of confronting the major artistic and practical issues of the design process. Students will be encouraged to devise their own creative projects through traditional and non-traditional presentations. This course is required for directing students and is an elective for acting and playwriting students.
