Where Art Thou: Go See Some Goddamned Theater 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:

  • Wednesday through Saturday, head up to Lenfest for the MFA Acting Class of 2020’s thesis production of Where Do We Live. Christopher Shinn uses compassion and humor to explore the lives of a group of young New Yorkers in August, 2001. Use code “SHINN” for free tickets with CUID.
  • CMTS’ Legally Blonde goes up this weekend, Friday at 8 PM and Saturday at 1 and 8 in Roone! Based on the cult classic film, this musical follows Elle Woods as she proves to her classmates at Harvard Law she’s more than a pretty blonde face. Tickets $7.50 with CUID.
  • Thursday and Friday at 8 PM and Saturday at 7, KCST presents: A Midsummer Night’s Dream in the Glicker-Milstein theater! Get there early for waitlist tickets to Shakespeare’s most enchanting and magical play.
  • Head to the Lerner Black Box this Thursday through Saturday for the CU Players’ production of Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull!  From Arts Initiative: “This female-centered adaptation of Chekhov’s “The Seagull” turns a classically male narrative on its head.” Tickets $6 with CUID.
  • Need a break from all the theater? Check out CU Wind Ensemble’s Fall Concert, tomorrow at 11 AM in Roone. Bookend the week with Columbia New Music’s Fall Concert No. 2: spooky unthankfulgivings next Saturday at 8 PM.

Off Campus:

  • This Friday at 6, the Martin Lawrence Galleries in Soho present a collection of works by era-defining artist Keith Haring. The exhibition will focus on Haring’s activism, responding to the urgent political issues of the 80s that are still relevant today. Free and open to the public.
