Auditions for “Highway Alive: A Concept Album” a Senior Musical Thesis

springsteen_rect

From Lindsay Schapiro ’14:

We enter the home and mind of Bruce Springsteen as he rises to international super-stardom in the 1980s. Except he may not really be Bruce Springsteen. And this may never have happened.

We are looking for actors, singers, visual artists, filmmakers, drunk concert-goers, clothing designers, experts in American, Sexuality, Race, Epic Theater Studies, and of course 1980’s Aficionados welcome.

This show dabbles in the immersive and experimental realms so all talent is encouraged.

Film Series: Crash

1996. Canada/UK. Dir: David Cronenberg. With James Spader. 100 min.

A TV director is irresistibly drawn towards the erotic, “fertilizing” potential of car accidents, and discovers that scars and burning metal are a good way to spice up a marriage. This is weirdo Cronenberg at his lurid best: turning what should be horrifying into something intensely alluring.

Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. Free.
