Excellent theatrical training in a hectic but thrilling setting. Past Review

By (Theater Studies, Brandeis University) - abroad from 01/04/2013 to 04/13/2013 with

Sarah Lawrence College: London - London Theatre Program

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
I was taught by some truly brilliant members of London's theater community and feel that my theatrical skill grew leaps and bounds. I also learned that having to fend for yourself in an environment that is often harsh is rough but a very necessary skill. I would definitely consider my time in London worthwhile
