'Last Five Years' debuts in Bentley

(03/06/08 8:01am)

"The Last Five Years," composer Jason Robert Brown's one-act musical, tells the story of a young couple's relationship and life together in New York over the span of five years. There are just two characters: twenty-something novelist Jamie (Brendan Lynch-Salamon '10) and struggling actress Cathy (Elise Hogan '09). Although a cast of two is unusual for a musical, it grants "The Last Five Years" a uniquely intimate theater experience.

(09/19/07 7:06pm)

Welcome to Hanover, Class of 2011. In case you haven't noticed yet, it is not a large town. But if you're the claustrophobic type, don't panic. This fall, the Dartmouth Film Society is bringing cities all over the world to campus. Its film series, "Bright Lights, Big City," features an impressive lineup of movies that capture the aura of urban landscapes as far flung as London, San Francisco and Bombay.

World-class acts to arrive at Hopkins Center this fall

(08/10/07 8:04am)

Students weigh in on college, winter eating habits

(02/23/07 11:00am)

Most Dartmouth students don't mentally calculate their protein intake for the day while waiting in the Food Court grill line. Few worry about whether they're getting a full serving, or three, of veggies or cheese or tofu when they throw together a Collis salad. There's no denying that academics, extracurricular involvement and/or raging have a way of taking up so much of Joe and Jane Dartmouth's time and brain space. Thinking about good nutrition just isn't always a priority. While the Freshman 15 may not happen to everyone, college eating is definitely very different from eating out in the real world, as every student transitioning from home to school for the first time soon discovers.

Mainstage stages a comedic coup with Shaw's 'Arms'

(02/19/07 11:00am)

It can be hard to define exactly which elements of a production work and which don't, but at the end of the day, so much responsibility for a performance's success rests with the cast. So, take a classic comedy, add a solid lineup of talented actors, and there you have Dartmouth's excellent Winter term Mainstage production, George Bernard Shaw's "Arms and the Man."

Music prof gains recognition with experimental 'Exercises'

(01/31/07 11:00am)

Last year was a good year for music and classics professor Christian Wolff. His most recent recording, "Christian Wolff: Ten Exercises," has been named among the 50 best albums of the year in the annual list compiled by The Wire, a popular alternative music magazine. The album, released in September on New World Records, features 10 classical pieces best described as experimental, with the electric guitar often taking on as big a role as the piano and the trombone.

Bostridge and Orpheus form unbeatable duo at the Hop

(01/30/07 11:00am)

Bostridge, for whom this performance will be one of only three appearances in the United States this year, is one of the foremost opera singers and recitalists in the world. Widely known for his tremendous vocal range, he has performed with the Vienna Philharmonic, the London Symphony and the orchestra of the Metropolitan Opera, to name a few of his most prestigious concert engagements. Bostridge also performed at his own Perspectives series at Carnegie Hall in 2005 and 2006.

Petronio brings evocative music and visual flair to the Hop

(01/08/07 11:00am)

The company's two shows at the Hopkins Center, on Jan. 4 and 5, both boasted strong turnouts -- and with good reason. Stephen Petronio, the company's artistic director and choreographer, has built quite a reputation since he founded the company in 1984. The recipient of a prestigious John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship, among other awards, Petronio has choreographed and directed more than thirty works to date. The company has performed in 25 countries, and Petronio himself has garnered international praise for his unique choreography in the company's works.

Pinter's 'The Lover' shines with student production

(11/20/06 11:00am)

Student productions are one of Dartmouth theater's best-kept secrets. Unfortunately, these excellent plays are all too often overshadowed by the (also excellent) mainstage productions, with which they tend to run concurrently. Students who did not catch the gem of a play that rocked the low-key Warner Bentley Theater this weekend missed quite a show.

Fall Mainstage 'Far Away' puts on a satisfyingly scary show

(11/16/06 11:00am)

It certainly is not easy to pull off a really scary play, the kind of unsettling performance that stays with you long after you leave the theater. Maybe you can't decide whether you loved it or hated it, probably because you're not totally comfortable with the new way it made you think about something -- war, hats, anything. It might leave you a little confused; you might even have a nightmare about it.
