Fall 2010 Applicants? Co-Administrator?

Hello everyone,

I'm sorry that I haven't kept up with running this community. I've been checked out of LJ in general in the past year and a half. I still think there is a need for this community, however, and I'm interested in getting it going again. Is anyone interested in becoming a co-administrator for this group and helping to keep discussions going here?

So... to get things started ... who else is in the midst of applications this fall? I am, although I'm applying to only one PhD program. It seems like I applied for my MA just yesterday!



I'm in the throes of applying to MFA Directing programs, so I feel you. Where are you applying for PhD?

This year, one program: the Ph.D program at the Graduate Center at City University of New York. If that doesn't work out, I'll apply more broadly next year. A bit unconventional, but this process is working for me right now.

I'm not applying to anything right now (having been in school for about twenty years straight now, I think I need a break), but my MFA thesis show is going up in ten days, so I feel you in being in the thick of things!

Mostly I'm commenting to say that I saw a show you dramaturged (A Bicycle Country- a friend's boyfriend was light designing it) and when I saw your name in the program, I thought, "hey! I know that name from the Internet!" :)

Wow, that makes me almost feel famous! I hope you enjoyed the show. I liked working on it very much. I'm working with that company on an ongoing basis now, so I see Scott (the LD) regularly.

I went through the application process last fall, and now I'm in my first year at the CUNY Graduate Center's theatre PhD program, which I'm very much enjoying. I wish you luck on getting in, and I would love to meet you if we didn't already meet at last summer's LMDA conference. Just now, I came across your name when researching the League of the Scarlet Pimpernel because I'm researching superhero musicals and counting The Scarlet Pimpernel as one.

I'd love to meet and hear more about the program. I'm at the Graduate Center on Wednesdays, since I'm taking Daniel Gerould's Avant Garde class. How cool that you are researching Scarlet Pimpernel! I'd love to hear more about your paper. At some point in the future, I'd love to do something researching with Pimpernel, since I have such a long history with the show!
