He is one of the greatest teacher's I've ever had, and he will talk to you about anything. He's very approachable and if you have anything to say about anything, he will listen. He's wonderful and knows his material, not just in theatre.

Take his class. Which one? All of them. He's the best teacher I've ever had, hands down. Take his classes and you will come out a different person (except for Theater 1).

He lets his favorites get in the way of the class too much and has a high tolerance for people that are rude to the class. A good quality to have in general, but not to have as a teacher. Otherwise he's great. He could easy up on theatre quizzes...
