Powerhouse Program Gets Major Coverage

Vassar has been in the news a lot lately - Jeffrey Goldstein' 77 getting a Dept. of the Treasury position, collegiate quidditch - and today is no exception. An article in the New York Times (currenty online, in print tomorrow) focuses on Vassar's Powerhouse theater summer program.

"[T]he 25th anniversary of Powerhouse Theater, the eight-week summer program at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., is something of a jaw-dropper," the article states. The article discusses some of the different projects (the Green Day musical "American Idiot") and celebrities (comedian Lewis Black) on campus.

There is also the obligatory Meryl Streep '71 mention. “Powerhouse has retained its outsider status, giving artists the freedom to truly experiment,” she is quoted in the article.
