Fall 2020 - I love Prof. Fitzgerald!! The readings are kinda tough but he's more than happy to schedule office hours, and is very clear about what he wants written in the essays. I learned so much about Black theater I think this was my most interesting theater class freshman year. Take this class! It will make you a better student and teach you to think critically.
Winter 2020 - The workload was a bit overwhelming at times, but only when we had to read 2 plays a week. One play a week was super manageable, and they were always super engaging! He goes over any concepts you had trouble with in lecture, and often makes jokes to keep us engaged. I'm super STEM so it was nice to go to lecture and experience a new side of UCLA. His exams are superrrrr easy. Just read over your notes and write down the things he says are important during lecture (he'll literally say "write this down" or "this will be on the midterm"). They consisted of multiple-choice followed by a few T/F questions. Overall, would definitely take a class with him again! If you're having doubts about this course, take it! You won't regret it.
