Arts Editor Maya Campbell interviews and sees the work of Extra Credit Ensemble, a theatre group led by two current Columbia students, in a special PeopleHop/Arts Review combo post.
The Twitter account, that is. We received word yesterday that the @deantini Twitter has been suspended.

The event’s organizers, Jake Snider, David Fine, Eric Shapiro, CC’13, and Sam Schube, CC’12, originally intended to protest the CIRCA-Ahmadinejad dinner.
