Doyle will work with faculty members at Pace Performing Arts Musical Theater program throughout this academic year to teach a variety of master classes and critique student projects, including vocal performance, song interpretation, the process of composition and the creative process.
Doyle will also give a public lecture in spring 2014, in which he will explore the creative process of directing musical theatre.
Amy Rogers, the director of the Musical Theater program at Pace Performing Arts, said in a statement, “John is one of the most inventive directors working in theater today. He represents the crossroads of classic tradition and cutting-edge revision — serendipitous because that is where Pace Performing Arts’ Musical Theater program also lives.”
"Through the generosity of our donors we are able to take full advantage of the richness of our New York City location and bring world-renowned talent to our campus several times over the course of the academic year, giving our students extraordinary opportunities to interact with leading professionals," added Dyson College dean Nira Herrmann.
