Randolph Dellago: The Artistic Director Speaks Theater

Randolph DelLago offers a conversational guided tour through contemporary theatre...from your local community and regional theatres, to the national tours of major Broadway shows to Broadway itself. He will talk about every aspect of theatergoing, beginning with the startling price of theater tickets today (a result of Mel Brook’s brilliant realization that a show’s producers could also act as their own scalpers)! He’ll also talk about the natural evolution of the theater-going
demographic ... from the official “Disney-fication” of Broadway in 1994 (when Broadway began to appeal to younger “family” audiences) to today, when the hottest ticket on Broadway is Hamilton, an aggressively color-blind “hip-hop” musical that most white adult Broadway theater-goers would not have considered seeing 20 years ago! In a lively give-and-take conversation, Mr. DelLago will try to illuminate the essential questions: Why do people still go to the theatre? And what do they expect to carry away from that experience? Instructor: Randolph DelLago

Al Hirschfeld- "The Line King" 

Al Hirschfeld enchanted generations with his lyrical linear caricatures. His art appeared in every major publication during the 20th century. His distinctive drawings graced book covers, record albums, playbills, and advertisements. We looked forward to counting his “Ninas” each Sunday in the New York Times. The antics of Vaudeville and Burlesque initially informed his work, but he soon allowed his irrepressible humor free reign. His exuberance was a gift that he willingly shared and his images still dance in our heads. Instructor: Dr. Terryl Lawrence

Picasso: A Brush with Destruction 

Picasso is quoted as saying “Every act of creation is first of all an act of destruction.” It is this creator and destroyer of worlds that is the subject of this presentation. In a sense, this program will be a revisionist biographical description of the artist & works examined against the crests & troughs of his tumultuous life. Picasso moved through life analogizing atoms of paint into psychological wavelengths few artists have envisioned before. His anthropomorphic transformations of common objects & the human form likened them to a single emotion, material or point of departure. In a sense like Oscar Wilde, Picasso took pride in a demonization of sameness. He was not concerned with beauty or its objectification nor, to a greater extent, how he related to others. This artistic and personal interface is integral to this four-part program looking at the profile & episodic career of perhaps the greatest artist of the 20th century. Instructor: Ken Green

Escher's Mathematical Art 

Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898-1972) is one of the world’s most famous graphic artists. His art is enjoyed by millions of people all over the world. Escher’s art is fascinating as he played with architecture, perspective, and impossible spaces. His works include a drawing in which you see forward and backward without shifting your viewpoint and a building topped with a staircase on which one could walk forever and never reach the top or bottom. See how Escher made glorious depictions of infinity. Instructor: Geoff Kashdan
