  • Due to our location in the heart of New York City, MMC often welcomes working professionals and living legends to speak to students at workshops and lectures. Recently, Anne Kaufman Schneider, daughter of playwright George S. Kaufman, spoke about her father’s work with the cast of the theatre department’s production of Kaufman’s Stage Door. Dick Cavett, the well-known columnist and former talk show host, led the discussion. Kaufman returned to MMC to see her father’s work brought to life. Her reaction? “The production was excellent, and I’m a tough critic!”
