His talk was so fascinating, that we decided to find some photos of Prof. Cohen in action.

Special Collections and Archives has the Robert Cohen Papers [MS-P069], which comprises fifty-three production books! These books include scripts, reviews, photographs and stage directions, which document Cohen’s work as director for theater productions at UCI and the Utah and Colorado Shakespeare Festivals.

We found that Prof. Cohen is, literally and figuratively, a man of many hats.

Robert Cohen is the founding chair of the University of California, Irvine Drama Department and a renowned professor, director, translator, playwright, essayist, and drama critic. In 2001 he was named Claire Trevor Professor of Drama at UCI.
