Last weekend’s theatre department performance of The Last Days of Judas Iscariot, by Stephen Guirgis, was notable not only for its star cast, intelligent humor and philosophical weight, but more so for its unique inclusion of student input in the creative process.
The show was led by director Shadi Ghaheri, visiting lecturer in theatre, and dramaturg Catherine María Rodríguez, both of whom emphasized the importance of actor participation in their process. The play, which imagines Judas Iscariot on trial in purgatory, was grounded by the exceptional Maya Jasinska ’21 as defense attorney Fabiana Aziza Cunningham, Samori Etienne ’21 as prosecuting attorney El-Fayoumy and Peter Matsumoto ’20.5 in the role of Judas himself.
For many students, the inclusive rehearsal process had a strong impact on the quality and value of rehearsal time, offering a much-needed change in the wake of the theatre department’s cancellation of Beast Thing in the fall.

To M. Jennifer Bloxam, professor of music, there are a few archetypal narratives that run the course of time in many different forms. This idea is the basis for the music department’s newest course, “Shakespeare through Music.” In this course, Bloxam calls upon her students to trace the ways in which composers, screenwriters and choreographers have over time used music to reinterpret and retell the plays of William Shakespeare. Bloxam began her exposure to Shakespeare in a less than lackluster high school setting.
