Ginnifer Goodwin (’01)—Snow White on the hit ABC show Once Upon a Time—tweeted the celebratory message:
“So proud to have my alma mater @BU_Tweets named as one of @backstage’s Tried-&-True Acting Colleges! Go Terriers!”
In an article naming Boston University one of the “5 Tried-and-True Acting Colleges” in the United States, the renowned performing arts magazine Backstage commended the University for pushing “actors to be part of a play as well as understand the role their play takes on in a larger discussion.” Backstage lauded School of Theatre Director Jim Petosa’s philosophy that theater is “a force for understanding aspects of humanity, whether at the geopolitical level or at the local level. We’re not bound to one style or method, but we do tend to stress plays that really have an impact on our understanding of societal phenomenon.”
BU is in the company of Carnegie Mellon University; Rutgers University; the University of California, Los Angeles; and the Tisch School of the Arts, New York University.
