The Marlowe Society posted: ★ How Can One Study in the Presence of Seductively Stockinged Legs? ★ Cambridge, 1938. The menfolk vow to forego all worldly pleasures and devote themselves only to pure and holy study. Meanwhile, in their isolated colleges, women are still denied full membership of the university. But the approaching visit of the Princess of France and her three ladies, Rosaline, Maria, and Katharine threatens to upset the sexless academic paradise. Will the celibate scholars stay strong to their vows or will the wily charms of the fairer sex prove too inviting for them? TICKETS: https://www.adctheatre.com/love

Cambridge University Musical Theatre Society posted: "Wherever we go Whatever we do We're gonna go through it together" 'Gypsy' follows ultimate showbiz mother Madam Rose as she desperately tries to force her two daughters, June and Louise, into a life of Vaudeville. Even as Vaudeville is dying in 20s America, Rose is determined that her kids will be stars of the Orpheum circuit -- just so long as she can convince everyone that they are no older than 9. When June abandons the act to become an actress in her own right, Rose forces the less talented Louise to take her spot, desperate that one of her children should be a star. Rose finds herself in a theatre world which is caught between drab Vaudeville and sleazy burlesque, but how far is she willing to go to make her daughter the star she dreamed of? 'Gypsy' is a story about love, motherhood, ambition and drive, all brought together by Styne's phenomenal score and Sondheim's lyrical wit.
