SEX? ROMANCE? TRUE LOVE?: Warren (Matt Seely) and Jessica (LindseyRose Aguero-Sinclair), 19-year-old children of privilege in 1980s Manhattan, struggle to escape the pitfalls of the adult world in Theatre Intime’s production of Kenneth Lonergan’s “This Is Our Youth,”playing at the Hamilton Murray Theater on the Princeton University campus through November 20.

“This Is Our Youth” Looks Back With Humor, Despair and Affection: Over-Privileged, Disaffected, Drugged-Out 1980s Urban Pre-Adults

Donald Gilpin

Holden Caulfield was J.D Salinger’s 1950s version in The Catcher in the Rye. Chris McCandless was Jon Krakauer’s non-fictional 1990s version in Into the Wild. Dennis and Warren, in Kenneth Lonergan’s This Is Our Youth (1996), playing at Theatre Intime for one more weekend, are young men in trouble.

Living on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, they defy, yet depend on, the affluence of their successful parents. They are immature college drop-outs, age 21 and 19 respectively, struggling with their desire to hold onto their childhood, yet also to grow up, live independently and find meaning, love, and values amidst the drug-centered world their lives have fallen into.

Princeton Symphony Orchestra Concert Celebrates Women in Art and Music

Nancy Plum

Princeton Symphony Music Director Rossen Milanov is slowly becoming acclimated to the Princeton community, and on a recent visit to the Princeton University Art Museum, Mr. Milanov was taken by an exhibit of paintings representing women in art and music. Based on his impressions of this collection, which includes paintings by Dutch and French artists, Mr. Milanov programmed a concert for the Princeton Symphony of works depicting women and in some cases also inspired by art. Mr. Milanov and the Princeton Symphony presented this program on Sunday afternoon in Richardson Auditorium to a nearly full house of appreciative audience members. Mr. Milanov linked music, art, and literature in this concert, also making good on his promise to collaborate with other Princeton music ensembles, including one of the choirs of Westminster Choir College in two of the concert works.
