Where Art Thou: A Rose By Any Other Name 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:

  • The 125th Annual Varsity Show will be held in Roone this Friday through Sunday at 8 PM, plus a Sunday 2 PM matinee. The Varsity Show is an original, student-written musical that parodies life at Columbia. You’ll be there. I’ll be there. A lot of Bwog will also be there. Tickets from $1.75.
  • KCST’s Spring Show, Romeo & Juliet, starts from Low Steps this Thursday at 8 PM, with additional performances at 11:59 PM Friday and 8 PM Saturday. The English language’s most famous romantic play will be performed open-air, with actors and audience moving around campus. I’ll be there (in the ensemble!). Bwog will be there. Hopefully, you’ll be there too. (Free admission.)
  • CBC’s Spring Performances are this Saturday at 3 and Sunday at 8 PM in the Miller Theater. Swing by to see some fantastic work, new and old, from student ballet dancers and choreographers. Tickets $10 with CUID.

Off Campus:

  • The Arts Initiative is offering $15 student tickets to Ain’t Misbehavin’: How Louis Armstrong Conquered New York, a talk by historian Ricky Riccardi, plus a performance by the Louis Armstrong Eternity Band. Head to the Museum of the City of New York this Monday at 6:30 PM for the story of Louis Armstrong’s meteoric rise to stardom during the Harlem Renaissance.
  • Stop by the Postcrypt Art Gallery this Thursday for a new exhibit, Small things. Small things of all kinds will be displayed, plus small food and small drinks.
