About this course:Great theater has the power to both entertain and inspire. At its best, a play can inform and even transform lives. This course features spectacle theater from Greek origins to today's socially relevant musicals, the work of our best playwrights, plays about famous people, and a focus on the actors' craft. Short scenes from staged plays on video, as well as actors performing live scenes and monologues via Zoom will be presented and discussed. We explore what engages us, makes us laugh, what touches our hearts, and what helps us live richer lives in tough times.
