SPRING PLAZAFEST
Wednesday, Jan. 10, 2018 | 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
Union Ballroom

The Campus Relations Board in ASUU will be hosting Spring Plazafest on Jan. 10, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Union Ballroom. There will be more than 140 student-run organizations at Spring Plazafest from all across the university. Students can learn all about the various opportunities on campus, including leadership, service, sports, and more.

Spring Plazafest is a great way for both new and current students to find different ways to be involved. In addition, because there are so many student-run groups there, it allows students to get a better feel for the student community on campus. Students often feel like it’s too late to join new organizations in the spring semester; however, many student run organizations become more active in the spring semester, so this is a great opportunity for students to get involved and learn more about various student groups, whether they live on or off campus.

NATIONAL THEATRE LIVE: YOUNG MARX
Saturday, Jan. 13, 2018 | 12-12:40 p.m.
Broadway Centre Cinemas, 111 E. Broadway

Rory Kinnear (The Threepenny Opera, Penny Dreadful, Othello) is Marx and Oliver Chris (Twelfth Night, Green Wing) is Engels, in this new comedy written by Richard Bean and Clive Coleman. Broadcast live from The Bridge Theatre, London, the production is directed by Nicholas Hytner and reunites the creative team behind Broadway and West End hit comedy One Man, Two Guvnors.

1850, and Europe’s most feared terrorist is hiding in Dean Street, Soho. Broke, restless and horny, the thirty-two-year-old revolutionary is a frothing combination of intellectual brilliance, invective, satiric wit, and child-like emotional illiteracy.
Creditors, spies, rival revolutionary factions and prospective seducers of his beautiful wife all circle like vultures. His writing blocked, his marriage dying, his friend Engels in despair at his wasted genius, his only hope is a job on the railway. But there’s still no one in the capital who can show you a better night on the piss than Karl Heinrich Marx.

PG-13 | Running time: Approximately 2 hours and 40 minutes, including a 20-minute interval.

Free parking available with validation at Broadway Centre Garage (east of Broadway Theatre).
