Lilla’s Senior Project: Good People
Lilla Brody‘s senior project in Theater Studies, Good People, is this weekend! Other senior gnomes involved include Cara Washington as the costume designer, Annie Jones as the makeup artist, and Mert Dilek as the graphic designer. Get your tickets here.
In Good People, Margie Walsh is hanging by a thread. She’s living paycheck to paycheck in South Boston, and she’s about to lose her job. But when Mike, an ex-boyfriend turned successful doctor, pops back into her life, Margie sees an opportunity. Pushed to the brink, Margie must ask herself how far she’ll go to get what she needs. David Lindsay-Abaire’s Good People is a riveting and darkly funny exploration of the choices we make and the choices we never get.

The theme of this YSO concert reflects on our recent concert tour of Russia. In addition to premiering a new work by undergraduate composer Max Vinetz, the orchestra performs two Russian masterworks. William Waite Concerto Competition winner and YSO co-concertmaster Cameron Daly will dazzle in Glazunove’s Violin Concerto, which was premiered in 1905. After intermission, we hear from Glazunov’s most famous student, Dmitri Shostakovich.Symphony No. 11 “The Year 1905” is a violent and poignant illustration of the events of the “Bloody Sunday” massacre in Saint Petersburg. Unlike the Halloween show, there won’t be a film for this concert, but critics have called Shosty 11 a “film score without a film.” I have never felt more excited about anything else in my entire life.
