Theatre Development Fund (TDF)
Hunter College's partnership with TDF - the country's largest not-for-profit performing arts service organization - has allowed Muse Scholars to attend Broadway and Off-Broadway performances and benefit from the instruction of teaching artists during special theatre workshops.
On Broadway, students have attended The Glass Menagerie, the acclaimed Broadway revival of Death of a Salesman starring Philip Seymour Hoffman (photo, right), and War Horse (photo of Muses before War Horse, above left). Off-Broadway productions have included A Summer Day, Little Miss Sunshine, and Carrie at the Lucille Lortel Theatre, where Muses spoke with Director Mary-Mitchell Campbell and actors who appeared in the musical.
To prepare for some of these performances, the Muse Scholars have worked with TDF teaching artists - including Courtney Esser, Victor Maog (photo, below left) and Katie Issel Pitre - who lead students in writing and pre- and post-performance workshops.
