Theatre U

Why should someone go to a university theatre program in Texas rather than work at a proper theatre? Greg Leaming, artistic director of Southern Methodist University’s theatre program says his program can do things other theatres can’t. “There’s no reason why a person can’t decide to go to the theater and say, ‘Let’s go to SMU.’We have the resources to do larger things than professional theaters can afford to tackle these days, and do them well. We just have to keep the bar raised good and high.”
