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.
Student groups are created for a wide variety of compelling reasons at Princeton, but what better excuse exists than “Yale has one, so why don’t we?”

Public Safety to have access to rifles in emergencies, tanks and aircraft also in works
At first glance, Anna Leader ’18 and Alexandra Mendelsohn ’18 might seem like practically the same person. Besides being brunette and around the same height, they were dressed in similar outfits when I met them for the first time. Leader then accidentally introduced herself first as Allie (Mendelsohn) before realizing her mistake, adding to the overall confusion.
Last week, “Bombay Velvet” showed at Princeton Garden Theatre as a Prof Picks movie. Street went behind the scenes with Gyan Prakash, a history professor as well as the film's screenwriter and the author of the book “Mumbai Fables.” In this interview, he shares his inspiration for the book, discusses his thoughts on the film and takes us through the screenwriting process.
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.
Breaking the fourth wall is always a technical challenge, regardless of dramatic medium. Yet it’s the centerpiece of the first show of the Princeton University Players’ 2015-16 season. In keeping with the self-referential humor of the work, the title of the one-act play is “[title of show],” literally referring to the fact that the show is about people writing the show that is being performed. Written by Hunter Bell and with music and lyrics by Jeff Bowen, the play chronicles Bell and Bowen’s experience writing the play for the 2004 New York Musical Theatre Festival with their friends Susan Blackwell and Heidi Blickenstaff.
Street sat down with Anna Aronson ’16 and Lauren Frost ’16, the co-hosts of “All-Nighter with Anna Aronson,” to discuss their roles as hosts, some behind-the-scenes details and a little about their lives as female comedians on campus. The season premiere of All-Nighter is Oct. 9 at 10:30 p.m. in the Frist Film/Performance Theater.

When thinking of “historical Princeton,” it is often images of Nassau Hall and Blair Arch that come to mind — it is, certainly, not the brick-tiled, rectangular building lodged between the Engineering Quadrangle and the Friend Center that represents campus for most people. Yet within this unassuming exterior stands the Mudd Library, responsible for housing just about all of the University’s illustrious history.
When October arrives, the seemingly nondescript brick and glass building lying next to Prospect Garden will begin hosting exhibitions of works from the twisting paths of the Chinese Silk Road and 1,000 year-old illuminated manuscripts from the Persian Empire. But before we make the trip into the ancient past, the “Cézanne and the Modern” exhibition takes us on the beginnings of a journey into the modern art world, showing the works of the man who Picasso and Matisse called “the father of us all.”
In which we take you around the world and introduce you to a cool STREET far from the well-trod gravel of Prospect Avenue.
If, like me, you got through half of your Princeton career without ever posting to Piazza, I would hazard a guess that, like me, you are a humanities major who has been steadfastly ignoring her QR requirement. (It would be nice if the two seconds I was in COS 126 were enough to make that requirement go away, but alas, that’s not how Princeton rolls.)
The last time I was in a formal dance studio was before I turned 13. It was my 10th and final year of dance lessons when I inevitably shifted into the musical world, playing bassoon in the pit orchestra with dancers onstage. Still, I like to think that I have a basic knowledge of dance. However, as I walked into the dance studio of Dillon Gymnasium, I reminded myself that belly dancing is very different from ballet.
