Kushner's Classic Resurrected

From April 17 to 19, Sayantan Deb ’14 will direct the first part of Tony Kushner’s play “Millennium Approaches: Angels in America Part 1” at the Adams Pool Theater. Although the play is set during the American AIDS epidemic of the 1980s and has three gay protagonists, Deb and the cast emphasize that “Angels” is not a play about being gay, but is rather a play about universal human relationships.

While jazz at Harvard still searches to find its rhythm, the April 12 concert filled the lower level of Sanders and drew exuberant applause. For all the program’s logistical issues, it continues to draw hard-working musicians from the student body.


"Così fan tutte" Hits a High Note

Though the Dunster House Opera production is not without its pacing problems, director Madeleine F. Bersin ’14 injects a sense of humor into an unpalatable plotline, fraught with sexist and misogynistic themes, to create an amusing adaptation with ironically humorous directorial choices and great caricatural performances from the actors.


Exploring Humanity at War Photographer Screening

War Photographer--the award-winning 2001 documentary depicting the work of photojournalist James Nachtwey--opens with a quotation by world-renowned photographer Robert Capa: “If your pictures aren’t good enough, you're not close enough.”


In the 'Antigonick' of Time

In Anne Carson’s translation of “Antigone,” she attempts to express the importance of what is left unsaid. By choosing to take out much of the original text, Carson zeros in on the most pressing themes of the original Greek classic, at the same time creating space for the audience to fill in some of the gaps. In collaboration with the Harvard-Radcliffe Dramatic Club, visiting director Ianthe Demos will put up a production of “Antigonick,” opening Oct. 25 on the Loeb Mainstage.
