The promotional posters for PlayMakers Repertory Company’s latest production, “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” bill the drama as a “dysfunctional family slugfest for the holidays.”
Sue Estroff always said that it didn’t cost money to dream. In public comments supporting her work writing the University’s new Academic Plan last year, Estroff’s line almost became a catch phrase.
Senior Cierra Hinton remembers when she attended N.C. Agricultural and Technical State University’s Homecoming football game during the fall of her senior year of high school.
As the implementation committee for the University’s Academic Plan enters its third month of slow progress, a pending meeting with the provost and a recently hired administrative assistant could help push the plan into high gear.
UNC students often make comparisons with Duke’s sterling track record of bringing high profile artists to campus, especially after the Carolina Union Activities Board announced this year’s homecoming concert, which will feature indie super group The New Pornographers.
With an eye on quick and noticeable policy changes, the committee charged with developing the University’s latest academic plan has begun to chart out its opening projects.
With a broad vision and a even broader heft, a permanent version of the Chancellor’s Student Innovation Team was officially launched Monday, angling to foster a more creative and innovative campus.
Five characters, two actors and one devastatingly uncomfortable premise – these are the ingredients of PlayMakers Repertory Company’s first production of the 2011-12 season.

That’s right. This is the last, last roundup of the school year. It’s been good, it’s been fun, it’s been all sorts of awesome things. But this is more of a “see you in August” type thing than a “gone for good.” Canvas will return for the summer, and then again — in full, snarky glory — in August. Until then, enjoy the sun, the humidity and his list of artsy fun.
Canvas knows that you probably have finals coming up. You probably have big term projects to finish and summer leases to sign and plane tickets to buy. We get it. But before all that really gets moving, distract yourself with a little artistic indulgence. You’ll thank us later.
The weather’s swell. The classes are hard. The work is tedious. You know you won’t want to do much homework this week, so hit the town hard and check out these great events. Singing Twain characters, large fish and German art lead the list. Check it.
While the Pauper Players are clearly excited to be back in the Historic Playmakers’ Theatre — their old home — their latest production is rather dull.

He’s bringing his documentary, “Teenage Paparazzo,” to UNC’s Carroll Hall this Saturday.
The ongoing story of Snoop Dogg’s pending concert at UNC — won in an online contest promoting Electronic Arts’ new game, “Bullet Storm” — continues, with a pair of rather lively Facebook groups arguing the hip-hop icon’s merits. Administrative hurdles aside, these groups open up a question Canvas wants answered: What do students think about Snoop Dogg, the artist?
