This Blog Is Back!

Let’s just skip ahead to today, bypassing the entire second semester’s worth of productions and achievements: the Collins Lectures by playwright Larry Kramer; Nancy Lipschultz’s terrific production of Les Liaisons Dangereuses, with M.F.A. actor Molly Casey leading a talented cast; Gavin Cameron-Webb’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, set in the dream factory of 1930s Hollywood; Tony Kushner’s visit to campus; Mark Kamie’s direction of The Pillowman with Jaysen Wright’s nuanced performance of Katurian, supported by Deana Nichol’s fine dramaturgy; George Pinney’s stirring production of Cabaret, which closed the school year’s season of plays; and, as they almost always say, much more.

We’ll just forget those things for now, in part because we’ve begun the work of the Indiana Festival Theatre, which opens its summer season Damn Yankees June 13 and plays this terrific musical through the end of June. (For scheduling details and ticket info, click to the usual suspect, our departmental home page.)

I’m busy assembling stuff for the productions and the Festival program, but I’ll have time to offer reports about the work of the IFT in the coming days and months.

Whew. It feels good to shake of the dust on this site.
