By: Caryl Churchill

In partnership with UNI’s Cornerstone course we present Love & Information, by award winning playwright Caryl Churchill. The Cornerstone theme for the year is Media & Social Media; we explore how our interactions have been abraded by our media-rich lives. Love & Information presents a blizzard of fragments snatched from our personal relationships as mediated and negotiated by the different ways messages travel through our everyday lives. It’s all about individuals trying to connect with and understand one another — ultimately in vain perhaps, but that’s just what makes such daily struggles heroic.  

"[A] thought-churning, deeply poignant new play...Leave it to Ms. Churchill to come up with a work that so ingeniously and exhaustively mirrors our age of the splintered attention span. - New York Times 

"...one of the many points made by this exhilarating theatrical kaleidoscope is that we live in a world where information bombardment is in danger of leading to atrophy of memory, erosion of privacy and decay of feeling." - The Guardian

An experiment in concertgoing, this program will be revealed at the performance itself. We have a few hints for you, though: a surprise (and surprising) scherzo by up-and-comer Ted Hearne, a major piano concerto with the winner of UNI’s Midwest International Piano Competition and an orchestral classic chosen by you at our April 2014 preview concert (Tchaikovsky 6, Firebird, Shostakovich 10 or Sheherazade).

There is only one REAL Rat Pack Experience! It’s not until you indulge in Hackett Miller’s critically acclaimed production of “Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show” that you begin to realize why Sandy Hackett’s own personal connection to these iconic legends has allowed him to tell this story unlike any other producer or performer. Sandy’s father, legendary comedian Buddy Hackett, was the best of friends with Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr. and Joey Bishop – and together, they all made history.
