In Brief

Dramaturgs needed

The International Theatre Program is producing Gertrude Stein's Doctor Faustus Lights the Lights in the spring under the direction of visiting guest artist Noel Salzman. The director is looking for dramaturges to work with him on the production—dramaturgs provide interpretive and research-based information to the director and often help develop the conceptual approach to a text. Interested staff and faculty should e-mail Artistic Director Nigel Maister. For more information on the production, visit
