    HotHouse Intensive: A New Breath
    Temple University Musical Theater BFA student José Raúl Mangual took part in a HotHouse Intensive this winter. He documented the experience through daily reflections and photos that will be shared as blog posts as we prepare for the Summer Intensive. I felt like today's class was the first that I saw, without seeking, the parallels between exercises.
