Our Town by Thornton Wilder

November 5 – 9 and 12 – 15, 2014
Lauren K. Woods Theatre

A University-wide production of the classic Pulitzer-Prize winning play by Thornton Wilder, Our Town tells the universal story of small town America. Though taking place in the first decade of the 20th century and written in 1938, Our Town has consistently been hailed as a theatrical masterpiece. A New York production won the Tony Award for best revival in 1989 and an off-Broadway presentation in 2009 won accolades from critics and audiences alike and ran for nearly 3 years.  Performed with little scenery and having the character of Stage Manager directly address the audience, Our Town asks us to consider what is important in life. When Emily wants to relive a day in her life, she is told “Choose the least important day of your life; it will be important enough.”

Virtual Tuesday Night Record Club: Pink Floyd: Wish You Were Here

We have decided to continue with Record Club in virtual format using the ZOOM app. When you register you will be provided the meeting link to join the conversation. It’s just like book club but with albums! With new advances in technology, the way we consume music through our devices, apps and on demand streaming services like Pandora, Spotify and iTunes is making the idea of the “album” as an art form extinct. Get together with other music enthusiasts on Tuesday nights to discuss some of the greatest records of all-time! Listen to the album beforehand and then come prepared to discuss. This event will feature Pink Floyd: Wish You Were Here
