Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead directed by Michael Barakiva. The entire play took place in the final moments, possibly a dream, before Guildenstern's death. Life flashing before his eyes? A dream the night before the execution maybe?
RENT directed by Mitchell Vanlandingham. The rock musical, a collection of artists living their lives. It feels so fresh, so current, but the 1990s were three decades ago. We approached the production as a period piece to bring the conversation about HIV/AIDS to our university.

Dogs of War directed by Josy Miller. What do you get when you take the entirety of Shakespeare's king plays but leave out the kings? A play about the soldiers, the common people, the rebels living in wartime. And learning that the people fighting the fight rarely understand the scope of the problem.
