Ellen Orenstein is an abusive, unstable professor who uses fear tactic, manipulation and damaging methods of "teaching" such as physical exhaustion, psychological manipulation and public shunning and slander. 

Kevin Connell has forced students to be naked on stage, has created conflicts amongst the student body and faculty involving race, gender and identity. Earlier this year students successfully removed Connell as the Director of “Fefu and Her Friends.” 

Both of these people need to be removed from the Marymount Manhattan Theatre Department if the school wishes to preserve its dignity and reputation. Students like myself can not recommend this program to prospect students if our abusers are still employed.
