Faculty and students have recommendations for filling the days before the next School of Drama show. Check out their picks, holiday-themed and otherwise.

Zane Jones, Associate Professor of Acting and Directing, is directing A Streetcar Named Desire at New City Theatre and invites everyone to come check it out. Previews on Dec 29 & 30. Opening January 2. Cast includes PATP alum Robert Bergin, BA alum Robin Hall Smith, and current BA Josh Langager. Costume design by Ali Rose Panzarella (MFA 2014). The stage management team includes current BA Michael Hanley.

BA student Michael Monicatti watches Auntie Mame - the Rosalind Russell version - every holiday season.

BA student Megan Brewer will be going to see the movie Into the Woods when it opens December 25.

Jeffrey Fracé, Assistant Professor in Movement and Acting, will be performing with Conni’s Avant Garde Restaurant at Cleveland Public Theatre from December 4-21.

Scott Hafso, Lecturer in Speech and Singing, will be watching The Bishop's Wife -- "an elegant, understated, surprisingly modern film from 1947, with Cary Grant, Loretta Young and David Niven."

Undergrad Emily Pratt watches Armando Iannucci's black comedy satire In The Loop with her brother every Christmas night: "It's very sweary and angry and not festive at all, but it's super hilarious and insightful. It also features some brilliant (Oscar-nominated) writing and great comic acting."

UTS Executive Director Rosalind Phelps will be following up UTS Night Out's trip to the Seattle Rep to see All the Way with a return trip to see The Great Society. She'll also "watch White Christmas for the zillionth time, and will listen to poet Dylan Thomas's recording of his prose work A Child's Christmas in Wales."
