Too Hot Poetry Contest Closes This Friday!

Each year, the Auditorium Theatre hosts a citywide poetry contest in conjunction with Too Hot To Handel’s celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “beloved community.” We ask students to reflect on their own communities and connect to King’s vision by answering the question “How has my community shaped me?” Submissions close this Friday @ 5PM!

First Look @ Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s Lazarus

In the company’s first two-act ballet, acclaimed hip-hop choreographer Rennie Harris is creating a piece inspired by the life and legacy of Mr. Ailey. Co-commissioned by the Auditorium Theatre, Lazarus connects past and present in this powerful work that addresses the racial inequities America faced when Mr. Ailey founded the company in 1958 and still faces today.
