New York City Study Away Trip 2023

Students ran into none other than Lin Manuel Miranda at the Drama Bookshop in NYC!

After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, twenty-three WKU students, along with faculty members Dr. Julie Lyn Barber and Dr. Michelle Dvoskin, were finally able to go on the Theatre & Dance Department's annual study away trip to New York City once again over the Winter term! While there, the group saw 9 shows on Broadway, toured several museums and theatre-related sites, and networked with many working professionals involved in the area's theatre scene. Learn more about the students' experiences in New York here.
