Anatomy of a Broadway Play

Marshall Jones III (Theater Arts)

Have you attended a Broadway play? Do you wonder about the steps it takes from audition to full-scale production? In this seminar we will examine a current show on Broadway from “soup to nuts,” that is, we will cover everything about the production of our chosen Broadway specimen including: reading and analyzing the script; understanding the director’s concept; casting; designing sets, costumes, and lights; promoting and publicizing; managing and budgeting, and more. Our course will culminate with a trip to New York City to see the Broadway show that we have chosen to focus on in the seminar.
