"Professor Scharnick's energy and sense of humor make me look forward to class every day. He has an incredible knowledge of pre-modern and postmodern plays, which is the time period of playwrights that I know nothing about. I feel like he is helping me widen my knowledge of good theatre, which is why I came here."
