CAU travel program: New York, NY—A Spring Theater Weekend, with Glenn Altschuler

April 21, 2018 – April 22, 2018 all-day
New York City

“The point of theater,” says English playwright Lee Hall, “is transformation: to make an extraordinary event of ordinary material right in front of an audience’s eyes.” We will explore such transformations, weighing their effects and themes as we enjoy three of the best new productions on and off Broadway.

Honing our understanding of the plays we’ll see will be CAU superstar Glenn Altschuler, whose enduring interest in contemporary American theater will be clear in his skillful lectures and our lively discussions.

We’ll begin with an afternoon session at the Cornell Club, followed by dinner and an evening performance. On the following two days, we’ll meet in the morning for a lecture and discussion, enjoy lunch together, and attend a Saturday evening performance and a Sunday matinee.

The program fee includes everything but hotel, Saturday dinner, and breakfasts—so make reservations at the Cornell Club if you’re a member, or choose a hotel, a friend’s couch, or your very own bed. Reserve your space with a deposit, make final payment for the program after Glenn selects the plays, and then join us as we immerse ourselves in the liveliest of the arts in spirited New York.

This program is part of Cornell Adult University’s (CAU), which offers acclaimed education vacations designed and led by Cornell faculty. Programs include off-campus travel adventures and week-long on-campus summer courses open to all, including Cornell alumni, families, and friends.
