Where Art Thou: Rom-Com Edition

New York City is packed with amazing culture and inspiring art, but sometimes it’s difficult to break the Morningside-bubble and experience it all first-hand. “Where Art Thou” is a weekly guide to interesting and notable lectures, events, and performances for the literary/musically/theatrically-inclined on campus.

On Campus

  • Midterms already?? Sounds fake. Take a study break this Thursday with the University Life Events Council’s Night @ Butler, featuring a comedy performance from Fruit Paunch, a screening of P.S. I Love You, pizza and board games.
  • This Saturday, Feb. 16 at 7 PM, head to Roone for Bhangra in The Heights XII — CU Bhangra’s annual showcase of Punjabi dance. The show will feature several college and professional bhangra teams, plus an exhibition act from hip-hop group Raw Elementz. Tickets $5 with CUID.
    • This Wednesday through Saturday, check out Jeffery Page’s (School of the Arts ’19) directing thesis, The Woman / The Man: An Evening of Two One-Act Plays at the Lenfest Center. These two Obie-winning plays explore African-American identities, and how current inequality perpetuates the past.

Off Campus

  • This weekend, head down to St. John’s Lutheran Church on Christopher St. for Romeo and Juliet, the inaugural performance by the all-female Lady Shakes Theatre Company. Tickets $20.
  • Saturday and Sunday, Puskhin Hall on West 86th Street is hosting a dramatic reading from Russia’s “Silver Age” of Poetry. Enemies of the People: Poetry & Music Under Stalinist Regime will feature the works of Anna Akhmatova, Boris Pasternak, and other artists who fought against tyranny, scrutiny and censorship to share their revolutionary writing with the world. Tickets $25.
