  • All artistic review information on this website has been updated for the 2019 admissions cycle.

  • The Drama Artistic Review portal is live for ED1 applicants only. The portal will open for the other four decision periods next week. Those applicants who have already submitted their Common Apps will receive a personalized link to the portal at that time.

  • The Director of Admissions and his team will be conducting artistic reviews in London and Shanghai, in addition to several U.S. cities.

  • Where monologues are required, please know we have changed our requirement to no more than 90 seconds for each piece.

  • Also, in the acting evaluation for Acting and Musical Theatre candidates, you may be asked to perform one or two monologues.
  • All Production & Design Internal or External Transfer candidates will participate in a digital artistic review.
  • We have updated our Directing artistic review guidelines. Please review them before scheduling your artistic review.
  • For Tisch Drama applicants (and all other departments that require an artistic review), NYU is test-optional.
