Preserving the Enchanted Years of the Stage

An interview with Felicia Hardison Londré, Professor, Theatre, UM Kansas City

As a Curators’ Professor of Theatre, Felicia Hardison Londré has taught theatre history and dramaturgy at UMKC for 31 years. “People need theatre,” she says. From every research excursion Londré makes into theatre history, which she views as a kind of time travel, she brings back records, artifacts, and stories in an effort to assure that this collective past survives far into the future.
