CMU School of Drama presents-The Full Monty, The Broadway Musical
The Full Monty is directed by Patrick Wilson. Performances will be take place on February 18 and 27 at 8 pm with additional performances on Feb. 20 and Feb. 27, 2pm-4pm. The Full Monty is a story about desperation, hope and humanity. Based on the film of the same name, this American musical shifts the story from Sheffield, England to Buffalo, New York; but it could be anywhere. Anywhere people have experienced unemployment, felt stagnant in their own lives, or had a desire to take their clothes off for money. This hilariously touching story proves that with determination and grit, anything is possible—even going The Full Monty.

Pittsburgh Lectures Presents Stephan Pastis
Stephan Pastis is a hilarious American cartoonist. He began his career as an attorney, but decided to try his hand at cartooning. The result was Pearls Before Swine, which at its heart is about two friends: an arrogant Rat who thinks he knows it all and a slow-witted Pig who doesn’t know any better. In 2013, inspired to break out of the box of a daily comic strip, Pastis took on the new challenge of becoming a children’s author, penning the first book in a middle grade series called Timmy Failure.Tickets $11. Stick around after the lecture for a book signing in the Library.
