Harness your inner princess by spending a magical, musical afternoon celebrating the amazing journey that the quintessential Disney female heroine has taken since Cinderella in 1950. It all started with "Someday My Prince Will Come." Empowerment slowly crept in through the years, with The Little Mermaid's Ariel singing about "... bright young women, sick of swimming, ready to stand," right up to the 2013 song that's inspired countless belt-it-out sessions in family cars across the country: "Let It Go" from Frozen. Your whole family will be singing along and feeling inspired to make dreams come true in a big way. Learn More

The performance was somewhat interesting. It suggested
different problems we certainly face in America.
The acting was overall fine. It just didn't move me or
interest me that much overall.
The NU theaters, however, are a nice addition to the
community. They might have been there awhile, but it
was my first visit to both the Louis and Barber theaters.
Identity. Unemployment. Communication. Dreams. Race. Politics. Technology. From plays to video shorts to graphic narratives to songs, celebrated Hollywood actress and writer Regina Taylor has partnered with Northwestern University students and faculty members to create a fearless, one-weekend-only festival of original works. Through a number of different performances, more than 50 members of the Northwestern community have come together in a personal, provocative and challenging examination of who we are as individuals, where America has been, where it is going and how we can own our voices to make a difference in the world today.
Two of the 10-minute-plays series presented at the festival are Dreams (an exploration of The American Dream, shifting the dreamscape as the reality of our times is revealed) and ID (an exploration of the constructs of identity, dissecting and reconstructing issues of race, gender and sexuality).
