From: Stan Altman, School of Public Affairs and Director, Baruch College-Rubin Museum Project
With the start of the 2015 spring semester, the Baruch College-Rubin Museum of Art Project is again offering opportunities for the Baruch community to enjoy the arts and cultural opportunities NYC offers. In this spirit I am writing to invite you to join me for another wonderful theatre production at the Abingdon Theatre. We have purchased a limited number of tickets for faculty, staff, and students (and a guest if desired) to attend the performance for free. Faculty members interested in bringing their class to a performance should submit a request explaining the educational objectives of taking the class to see this particular performance at the Abingdon. Submit your request to Ms. Jonelle Griffen at email@example.com.
Seats will be allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis with preference given to faculty and staff who have not previously attended one of the free performances at the Abingdon Theatre sponsored by the Baruch College-Rubin Museum Project. Please RSVP to Jonelle Griffen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Abingdon Theatre Production
A Happy End
By: Iddo Netanyahu
Directed by: Alex Dmitriev
Set in 1932, A HAPPY END is the story of a Jewish family faced with the decision whether to leave Berlin amid the imminent rise of the Nazi Party. They struggle to believe that Germany’s traditions of art, science and democracy will not change as Hitler comes to power. Although the signs of danger are increasing, the family ponders whether to seek an unknown future outside their beloved Germany or to stay.
Location: Abingdon Theatre Company
312 W. 36th Street, New York, NY
Date: Tuesday, March 17th
Time: Arrive by 6:30 PM - Curtain at 7:00 PM
The play runs approximately 90 minutes without intermission.
As a special gift to us, there will be a talkback after the play with members of the cast and the play’s artistic director, giving the audience an opportunity for dialogue and gaining insights into the workings of the production behind the scenes.
The Baruch College-Rubin Museum of Art Project
The Baruch College-Rubin Museum of Art Project was established on the principle that exposure to and participation in the arts enrich students’ college experience and empower them to seek meaningful lives. Through a number of initiatives, the Project provides faculty the means and opportunity to enrich student experiences by creatively integrating arts across the curriculum, with the purpose of helping students develop the critical and systems thinking skills required to be successful in today’s increasingly interconnected and interdependent world.
The Baruch College-Rubin Museum of Art Project provides Baruch students, faculty, and staff FREE admission to the Rubin Museum of Art. Just show your college ID at the admissions desk.
