“This guy gives me nightmares” – me
David Barton holding up a finger for each of his deep-seeded insecurities.
It’s not every day that a creationist utters the words “Wesleyan College.” But when they do (and you quickly fact check that they’re not talking about the REAL Wesleyan College in Macon, Georgia), you’re likely in for a hoot.
David Barton is a sad sad man. According to his website (which is really fugly by the way), he is the “Founder and President of WallBuilders, a national pro-family organization that presents America’s forgotten history and heroes, with an emphasis on our moral, religious and constitutional heritage.”
Xiaoxi Tu ’09 is writing an opera to be performed in the spring, and she needs production staff:
It’s an Adam and Eve story set in a post-Eden garden in Creation-Museum land. Adam names the animals. Eve un-names the animals. The orchestra is part western classical, part gamelan, part taiko, and part hip-hop. There will be fire. There will be rain. There will be nudity. There will be a giant robotic dinosaur. And if you sign up, there will be cookies. And Love. Lots and lots of Love.
All levels of expertise welcome! If you have experience, great; if not, bring extra enthusiasm.
Xiaoxi needs a stage manager and assistant stage manager, assistant director, costume designer, makeup artist, lighting designer, set designer, sound designer, stage crew, carpenter, and electrician. Email her at xtu@wes if interested.
