    Fran Dorn, the Virginia L. Murchison Regents Professor in Fine Arts and Distinguished Teaching Professor in the Department of Theatre and Dance, leads the Acting Program at The University of Texas at Austin, where she has taught since the spring of 2000. Here, Dorn examines what it means to be an actor, for both her students and herself. With guidance from her students and the never-to-be-taken for granted works of William Shakespeare, Dorn continues to grow as a teacher.

      It is so exciting for me to see Professor Dorn working with the students at UT. I had the pleasure of seeing her perform in Macbeth at the Folger Shakespeare Theatre some time ago. I don't remember much about the production, but her riveting performance was one of the most memorable I have experienced. Bravo for UT getting her there.
