TH101 TH102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Ilana knows what she's talking about. She's experienced and hardworking. What you want to understand before taking her class is that she teaches a huge number of people! The tough attitude she presents in class is to make sure you're paying attention, but see her in an office hour and you'll see she really does care. I've learned a lot from her.

DR100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B

I was exciting to be a theatre minor until I found out i had to take courses with Ilana. After two semesters, I dropped it. Just do theatre in your spare time, it's not worth it.

TH102A1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She is very partial to the performance core and willingly marginalizes the minors or the design and production students. Her class is authoritarian, with no real room for creativity. It is not about the cannon of theatre; it is about what she wants.

DrlitB1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This woman knows her stuff. She hard works to engage minds about social and political issue that surround the work. The class size is difficult to manage, but if you take the time to set up an office hour with her it's worth it. An amazingly brilliant woman, who will set your mind on fire... if you let her. Highly encouraged for theater artists.

DR100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

be prepared for nudity, boisterous discussions, incomprehensible plays about nothing. it's her way or the highway. class is mislabeled; not about dramatic literature. more about dramatic people and art history.
