Eugene O'Neill Theater Center celebrated the 40th anniversary of the National Theater Institute Feb. 1 at The Players Club. Joining the party were more than 250 alumni of the Center.
The O'Neill's National Theater Institute offers multiple undergraduate programs, providing training in acting, directing, playwrighting, movement, and stage combat on the O’Neill campus in Waterford, Connecticut. Here is a look at the Monday evening event:
The O'Neill, founded in 1964 in honor of Eugene O’Neill, four-time Pulitzer Prize Winner and America’s only playwright to win the Nobel Prize in Literature, is the country’s preeminent organization dedicated to the development of new works and new voices for the American theater. The National Playwrights Conference, the O’Neill’s founding program, is led by Wendy C. Goldberg, now in her sixth year of artistic leadership. The O’Neill has been home to more than 1,000 new works for the stage and 2,500 emerging artists. Scores of projects developed at the O’Neill have gone on to full production at other theaters around the world, including Broadway, Off-Broadway and major regional theaters.
