Does anyone know anything about the quality of the Princeton theatre department? Obviously, there isn't really a "bad" department at Princeton, but... I'm specifically interested in the accessibility of the professors and their methods of teaching. Do they all subscribe to the same method? Is the class atmosphere competitive? Do you have to audition for classes? Are most of the professors also working professionals? What is the ratio of practical training to textual analysis of dramatic literature? Answers to any or all of these questions would be much appreciated. Thank you!!!

Some of the answers to your questions are here: http://www.princeton.edu/~visarts/tdinfo.html
Here's the faculty with some bios (you can google the rest): http://www.princeton.edu/~visarts/thefac.html
In addition to coursework there are student thesis productions and the various theater companies on campus, as well as opportunities to intern at the McCarter Theatre, on campus (quite of few of its productions have moved to Broadway):
If possible, make an appointment to meet with the program director to ask your more detailed questions; this would give you an opportunity to really get a sense of them and vice-versa.

you do not have to audition for intro classes (and i'm not sure about others, i think just permission of instructor), and there is no fixed method. haven't taken any classes yet.
