The Sanders theater is so amazingly beautiful! It has an enormous amount of priceless stain glass windows. I used to walk by this everyday for many years - this building makes me want to be a better person!

You can see this theater during a campus visit (registration encouraged but not required), so even if you don't intend to apply, this is a great way to get insights into the school and visit the theater.

Saw the Harlem Gospel Choir during MLK weekend and they rocked the house. There is not a bad seat in this venue and the acoustics are amazing.

Went to see Christmas Revels for the first time and enjoyed the show. Need to go with an open mind and a Christmas spirit and it's quite fun. The singers were excellent and the acting is a bit strained but it's local theater not Broadway...More
