Michael Cadden is Chair of the Peter B. Lewis Center for the Arts. He is in his thirty-fourth year of teaching at Princeton, and for nineteen of those years he served as Director of the Program in Theater (which was for many of those years was the Program in Theater and Dance). He began his career at the Yale School of Drama, as a dramaturg at the Yale Rep under Lloyd Richards and as a lecturer in the dramaturgy, directing, and acting programs at the Drama School. Since 1981, he’s taught summer programs for high school teachers of English at the Bread Loaf School of English at Middlebury College, at their campuses in Vermont, Oxford, Santa Fe, Asheville and Juneau. In 2003, he happily helped inaugurate the Roger S. Berlind Theater — ten years in the planning and the jewel in the crown of Princeton’s performing arts community. His areas of interest include Modern and Contemporary Theater, Ancient Greek Draama and Shakespeare in Performance, and Australian literature and theater. In 1993, he was honored to receive Princeton’s President’s Award for Distinguished Teaching. He looks forwarding to cutting at least one of the ribbons for the new Lewis Arts Complex opening in the Fall of 2017.
