Who’s Who in the Arts

Steve Vinebert, Ph.D., professor of theatre

Steve Vineberg, Ph.D., professor of theatre, wants to take you to the movies. And to the theater. And to the place where art makes you part of the creative process. At Holy Cross, Vineberg directs plays as well as teaches classes in film, dramatic literature, and theater history. He is also a noted film critic and has written widely about acting and film. Vineberg wants to transmit his excitement about the arts to his students so they can experience its life-changing powers. “Going to the movies can be so much more than simply consuming culture,” he says. “The greatest art is irresolvable, and that’s why it keeps nagging at you. It transforms you by telling you things you may not want to hear – but once you have, you can never unhear them.”
