Theater: ‘Red Noses’
Long before Macklemore started popping tags in 2012 and hipsters emerged in recycled ’90s plaid, thrift stores were a must for anyone searching for good deals and the potential for big buys on a budget. While the University is not the first place that comes to mind when looking for a good secondhand find, there are three consignment stores within walking distance from campus. Senior Writer Margot Yale took her artistic flair and penchant for discount fashion to Nearly New, Greene Street Consignment and Jane Consignment to get a feel for each store and determine what she could buy with a budget of $20.
Concert: Princeton University Orchestra Season Opener
Princeton Battlefield is one of the most dramatic sites in the town, serving as a critical location during the Revolutionary War. However, in recent years, various performance groups have harnessed the drama ingrained into the grounds by using the battlefield as the location for their shows. This weekend, the Cradle Theatre Company plans do the same with their production of Shakespeare’s “Pericles, Prince of Tyre,” on Saturday, September 27 at 6 p.m.
Musical: ‘The Drowsy Chaperone”
Though the Princeton experience guarantees an education with a superior focus on the undergraduate and countless opportunities to work with, speak to and learn from professors, one can’t deny this experience is vastly different from department to department. Although the economics department boasts a faculty of 61 members, far more than the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures’ faculty of 17, there are presently 257 students concentrating in economics, compared to just nine students in Slavic languages and literatures. Departments with more faculty than students can be considered to be struggling, but some students in these departments would say this ratio is a major benefit to their academic pursuits. This week, Street takes a look at some of the smallest undergraduate majors on campus to get a glimpse into these academic communities at Princeton.
When the curtain falls, we applaud the actors, the directors and the producers for a job well done. But often, we forget the person who made sure the curtain fell at the right moment, lit the actor’s face in the most flattering way or worked for hours to ensure the costumes fit both the actors’ and the director's vision. These people make up a small community of students on campus who work in technical theater. In high demand and often juggling multiple shows at once, these students turn the visions of dance companies, theater groups and directors into reality.

If you’re a big blockbuster buff, consider taking your film-watching habits to a higher level of globally conscious with a discussion of filmmaker Olivier Assayas’ portrayal of terrorism in his movies. Assayas has written films such as “Clean” and “Summer Hours” (neither of which is cheesy rom-com or a poorly made horror flicks). Led by Rubén Gallo — director of Princeton’s Program in Latin American Studies —the discussion will engage Assayas and critic Ian Buruma in a dynamic conversation.McCosh 50Tuesday,6 p.m.
It happens to all of us. You meet someone, anyone —maybe by sitting in on a different section of one of your precepts or perhaps by bumping into someone while scooping ice cream in the servery. After introducing yourself, you enjoy a brief, but far too fleeting, conversation. For the next few weeks, you’ll smile in passing but soon even that minimal interaction fades.
Event: CSA's "Around the World in 80 Minutes"
New Jersey has eternally been plagued by stereotypes entrenched in pop culture from “Jersey Shore” to “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” And yet, the state was the industrial mecca and the avant-garde muse for artists in the mid-20thcentury. Its abandoned manufacturing wastelands called to artists from across the Hudson, and many left their studios in New York to answer the call.
Before being sucked up by the Orange Bubble, you may have had grand plans to travel to New York or to Philadelphia while in college to enjoy what these cities have to offer. The plays, the shopping, the food, the concerts, the art: All were beckoning you. But chances are, you don’t make it off campus that often. Worry not: You can absorb art and culture right here in our backyard. The cousins of many of the masterpieces hanging at the Metropolitan Museum and the Museum of Modern Art actually live right next door to you in the Princeton University Art Museum.
