The 2015-2016 Fordham Theatre Mainstage Season, A Season at the Mountaintop, is our response to recent and past incidences of racial/police violence. We visualize a better society, one in which everyone is included. This is our homage to Dr. King's vision at the Mountaintop. To realize it, we are producing plays that reveal alternative strategies to transcend the abuse of power.
I'm impressed at the diversity of Fordham. There's a variety of types and styles, and ways of thinking. It feeds into a very refreshing, creative energy... And the camaraderie between students in the Theatre Program is inspiring. -JoAnne Akalaitis, five-time Obie Award winner
The high quality of training shows in the students' work, which is of the caliber of a graduate program. In last year's senior showcase, I saw an individual approach to character, which demonstrated great inner depth. -Julie Tucker, Tucker/Meyerson Casting
