Tisch Drama: The Remix

If each Tisch Drama Studio has its own personality, then here are some songs that might best represent them.

The Hypothesis

At the risk of starting a Tisch Drama culture war, I’m going to go out on a limb and say each Drama studio does indeed have its own personality. It’s own essence if you will. If so, I hypothesize we can capture that essence in some form for non-Drama students to better understand when their Drama counterparts inevitably slip into a conversation about their studios. Here is a Spotify playlist, curated by some fellow Drama students and myself, that we think best encapsulates each studio’s DNA.
