It's a course designed as the theater equivalent of Cliffs Notes but with a price tag that requires deep pockets. For $335, UC Irvine Extension will offer "The Language of the Performing Arts," beginning with a panel discussion Jan. 15, followed by four shows at the Orange County Performing Arts Center in Costa Mesa, along with pre-show dinners and lectures at the Wyndham Garden Hotel across the street from the center. The fee amounts to double the cost of the show tickets alone.
