Directing the First Production

Fall 2019

Taught By: Tea Alagic and Stephen Brown-Fried

Section: A

CRN: 7787

Credits: 6

Directing the First Production guides the director through the process of developing and producing an original theatrical work created in collaboration with a writer in the 3rd year. This course challenges directors to occupy an authorial role as the primary visionary defining what the ultimate theatrical product should be. Through explorations of process, examination of different approaches to collaboration, and discussions on the challenges encountered throughout the process of mounting a new, collaboratively developed work, this course empowers directors as generators of creative content, and strengthens the director's capacity as a producer of their own work. This course is tied to the third year 'Sandbox Project,' in which director/writer teams mount self-generated 40-minute works at an off-off-Broadway venue.
