Interview: University Theatre Departments

For this week’s podcast, Anne Nicholson Weber is joined by the heads of the theatre departments at three Chicago institutions. John Culbert of Depaul University, John Green of Columbia College and Rives Collins of Northwestern University talk with Anne about how their theatre training programs affect the ecology of the Chicago theatre community (and vice versa), what makes Chicago’s scene unique and why theatre education matters.
