Department of Drama Chair Ralph Zito hopes that the Sunday Salon Series, which will accompany each of the department’s mainstage productions, will provide an opportunity for the University and larger community to take a closer look at the creative process, to explore themes presented in each production by engaging in conversation with members of the creative team and faculty experts from a wide range of fields, and increase awareness of drama productions as a curricular and co-curricular resource.
