...the frustrating thing about most MFA programs is having to listen to the same people read the same crap over and over again without edits or any improvement.
I was fortunate to have professors (including my favorite modern playwright)who understood my work and were totally supportive of my writing not being cookie cutter. (I got two scholarships and recommendations to a few NYC theatre groups...yeehaw) Unfortunatly, I had to listen to most of the rest of the cookie cutter crew give the same comments over and over without paying any attention to the text being discussed. (I adore close textual criticisms

I have been looking at colleges and although I am most likely going to go to the east coast for school, I was wondering what schools in California have good musical theatre programs. Theatre is a big part of my life and I plan on majoring in it and hopefully moving onward from there after graduating. I know UCLA is an excellent school, but extremely difficult to get into. Can someone please help me? Thanks! :)
