This week, Street takes a look back on the history of arts at Princeton through the 'Prince' archives, including a salty column by an 1882-era arts advocate and the opening of McCarter Theatre. Key: takeaway: Jimmy Stewart '32 was a sneaky guy.
As soon as I told our airport taxi driver the name of the street I would be living on for the next four weeks — “Rua Sá Ferreira,” I said, the unfamiliar whooshy h-like rr’s of Portuguese tumbling gracelessly out of my mouth — he nodded. “Ah, I know where that is,” he said. “In Copacabana.”
When they were in the military, Max Kim ’16, Michael Liao ’17 and Ann Thompson GS began each day hours before the typical college student gets out of bed. Kim, who spent 25 months between his freshman and sophomore years in the Republic of Korea Air Force, would wake up at 6 a.m., report for roll call and go for a 30-minute jog before reporting to the logistics command office where he worked.
On Friday evening, when Anna Aronson ’16 and Cameron Platt ’16 utter their first lines as Nina Zarechnaya and Irina Arkadina in Anton Chekhov’s “The Seagull”, they will be following in the footsteps of two other Princeton women who performed the play for their senior thesis project — 10 years ago. In that production, Nikki Muller ’05 (of “The Ivy League Hustle (I Went to Princeton, Bitch!)” fame) played Nina, and Emma Worth ’05 played Arkadina.
This week, Theatre Intime’s “Gidion’s Knot” closes out the last three performances of its two-week run. Written originally by Johnna Adams and directed on campus by Victoria Gruenberg ’16, the show features just two actors, Ugonna Nwabueze ’18 and Hope Kean ’18. Street sat down with Gruenberg and Nwabueze to talk about what it was like to be put on this short but emotionally high-stakes play. This Q&A has edited and condensed for clarity.

Here’s a confession: Before I started writing this piece, I had to use Google Maps Street View to remind myself the name of the street I’m writing about. It’s been two years and four months since I last stepped foot in Urubamba, a town in Peru’s Sacred Valley and my home for nine months during my Bridge Year, and what was once effortlessly familiar now requires a bit of dusting-off to recall.

Musical: Princeton Triangle Club presents "A Wrinkle Intime"
The first incarnation of Jammin’ Crepes was a food truck that frequented farmers' markets and festivals. Though it opened up its first storefront last October, the checked plate liners, cork accents and silverware-filled mason jars somehow still recall Jammin’ Crepes beginnings — as does the fact that all of its napkins and to-go containers are compostable. The decor, warm and tasteful, feels vaguely “Southern,” my Texan roommate said. As for the crepes themselves, the offerings, especially on the savory menu, more closely resemble sandwiches than your average Nutella-slathered crepe — which also makes them more interesting.
When Hannah Davinroy ’17 was in elementary school, she hated science.
Event: Pace Center Presents 'Poetic Justice' Open Mic
In some ways, Princeton Latinos y Amigos can trace its roots back to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor and Acción Puertorriqueña, the group she co-chaired while a student at the University. After numerous national origin-specific groups such as Acción Latina, Acción Puertorriqueña’s successor; the Cuban American Undergraduate Students Association; Chicano Caucus; and Colombian Students Association and Friends faded into obscurity, PLA was officially recognized in spring 2013 as a pan-Latino organization for undergraduates on campus.
“Pehchaan” means “identity” in Urdu, and an on-campus sense of Pakistani and Pakistani-American identity is precisely what the student group Pehchaan seeks to build.
