The Department of Theater faculty is in the New York theater spotlight this month!
Following its successful world premiere, Northern Stage's 2017 production of Trick or Treat opened last week at 59E59, an off-Broadway theater dedicated to the production of innovative and invigorating new work created by emerging and established not-for-profit theatres. A professional regional theater led by Artistic Director Professor Carol Dunne, Northern Stage maintains a close partnership with the Department of Theater, including hosting Dartmouth theater students for experiential learning terms and regularly featuring them in their productions. Trick or Treat, which recently received a stellar review from Broadway World, was directed by Carol and features a set design by Professor Michael Ganio.
In other news, a critically-acclaimed and sold-out 2018 production of Oklahoma! at Brooklyn's St. Ann's Warehouse will be moving to Broadway in March. The production includes original choreography from Professor John Heginbotham, a 2018 Guggenheim Fellow; the New York Times described Professor Heginbotham's powerful work as "shocking in its raw expression". And word has also reached us that the Ensemble Studio Theatre's current production of the remarkable new play Behind the Sheet, which includes a set design by Visiting Artist Lawrence E. Moten II, has just been extended in its off-Broadway run. Lawrence is currently designing our Winter 2019 MainStage production of Into the Woods, and will be teaching THEA 42: Scenic Design in the spring.
Congratulations to all our colleagues!
