The Libraries’ spring exhibit, Stage to Stage: The Theatrical Work of Robert Cohen, opened on Tuesday, April 29, in Langson Library. The exhibit celebrates the accomplishments of UCI’s renowned stage director and distinguished professor of acting. Cohen, currently Claire Trevor Professor of Drama, has directed more than seventy productions on campus and thirty on the professional stage, published twelve books on acting and theater, written new plays and translated classic ones. In 1993 he was awarded the UCI Medal, the campus’s highest honor, and in 1999 he received the ATHE Career Achievement Award from the Association for Theatre in Higher Education.
Stage to Stage focuses on Professor Cohen’s productions at UCI. Beginning with Tennessee Williams’ Night of the Iguana in 1966, he has brought to life the timeless works of Shakespeare, Molière, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Bertolt Brecht, and many others. Beyond his directorial accomplishments, he is a passionate and renowned acting teacher whose legacy can be found on stages throughout the world.
The opening night event featured a conversation on drama at UCI between Professor Cohen and Eli Simon, Chair of the UCI Drama Department.
The exhibit will be on display through October 2008 during normal library hours. For further information on the exhibit, please call 949.824.7227.
