Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I recommend this course, as it was challenging and fun, but not too strenuous on freshman and sophomore level students. I was introduced to a new aspect of the theater arts, and was given the ability to read and see various professional plays throughout New York City, something I wouldn't have done without the class.
I learned about the various ways theater is used to discuss politics, social issues, and to give a voice to those without. We were given ample opportunity to discuss various issues as pertained to the stories we read and watched, and the class learned from one another and opened our minds to new viewpoints and ideas. We learned different writing and directing styles, acting techniques, and what goes into writing and performing plays.

Advice for students:
As long as you read the plays and see the shows on time, you'll do okay. In reading responses, you need to make sure that you really give the pieces a lot of thought and truly analyze the meaning behind the plays. Go into detail and relate the story to the real world, and you will do really well.
