My First Documentary Film: Leadership and Theater

(click the video to watch full size on YouTube)

What does theater have to do with business ethics and leadership? In the spring of 2009, 24 MBA students at the Darden School of Business in Charlottesville learned more about the connection as they took Professor Ed Freeman's "Leadership and Theater: Ethics, Innovation, and Creativity" class. In addition to acting and directing exercises, the student's final project was writing, directing, and acting in a full-length play. This documentary follows the students throughout the class, with the grand finale of the performance.
