Many thanks, and we look forward to seeing you! sarah elizabeth bedard boston, massachusetts Itâ€™s the best possible time to be alive, when almost everything you thought you knew is wrong. â€”Arcadia by Tom Stoppard sam gillam baltimore, maryland I say farce deliberately, in the hope of covering up for you. â€”EleuthĂŠria by Samuel Beckett nicole dalton morristown, tennessee There’s an end to every storm….But only then, in those quiet moments after the storm, do we learn who was strong enough to survive it. —Grey’s Anatomy brandon green selma, alabama Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing. â€”August Wilson alex johnson wichita, kansas What matters most is the music you hear in your head….The impossible ideal, as it were. The beauty not quite within our grasp…. If only we could live in the music forever.... —Souvenir by Stephen Temperley alex m. jacobs aylesbury, united kingdom ...life is far too important a thing ever to talk seriously about... â€”Lady Windermereâ€™s Fan by Oscar Wilde sara schoch cleveland, ohio And though she be but little, she is fierce. â€”A Midsummer Nightâ€™s Dream by William Shakespeare eddie shields philadelphia, pennsylvania The lie of a pipe dream is what gives life to the whole misbegotten mad lot of us, drunk or sober. â€”The Iceman Cometh by Eugene Oâ€™Neill laura jo trexler denver, colorado I must have done something good. â€”Something Good [from The Sound of Music] by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein j. andrew young los angeles, california I regard the theater as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being. â€”The Artist as Critic: Critical Writings of Oscar Wilde by Oscar Wilde and Richard EllmanÂ Things can fall apart, or threaten to, for many reasons, and then there’s got to be a leap of faith. Ultimately, when you’re at the edge, you have to go forward or backward; if you go forward, you have to jump together. —Yo-Yo Ma brandeis performance faculty Nancy Armstrong Susan Dibble, Chair Nancy Doyle Adrianne Krstansky Marya Lowry, Head of MFA Program Janet Morrison Elizabeth Terry Robert Walsh, Artistic Director, Brandeis Theater Company office of communications ÂŠ brandeis university 2013 e115a showcasebrandeis.com
