THEA 190 Theater Now: Los Angeles

Theater Now takes students off campus and in to local performance venues to see the work of diverse artists making theater from a broad base of inspirations. A wide sample of local theater is represented – thematically, geographically, culturally. Friday evening field trips take students to a variety of Los Angeles’ artistic outlets, while Monday afternoon sessions with guest artists put class members in direct contact with the actors, writers, and directors whose plays and performance pieces they have seen. Our work offers a comprehensive introduction to active theater-going, L.A.'s performance community, the creative habits of working artists and the social, political and aesthetic ideas behind their work. There is a ticket fee not to exceed $75 for this course.
