Last Thursday, our West End Preview gave attendees a glimpse at how The 121st Annual Varsity Show will be tackling some of the greatest challenges Columbia students face: dealing with administrative bureaucracy, finding love in a hopeless place, and overpaying to drown our sorrows. Guided by Bwog’s head theatre critic Chub Tubbard and armed with the power of song and dance, lucky audience members were presented with three delightful sketches of V121 numbers.
Together we laugh-cried over Columbia’s financial aid (or lack thereof), wondered at the possibility of a romance despite (gasp!) ideological differences, and relished the topsy-turvy alternate universe otherwise known as Senior Night (as opposed to this universe, known as Butler).
All in all, the night was a rousing success—West End Preview gives us the opportunity to share our show so far, and there’s nothing as energizing or rewarding as the genuine appreciation of those we’ve worked so hard for. So to those who were able to lend their support in person, we of V121 thank you deeply. And if you weren’t able to make it, have no fear: we’ll be uploading the video soon! In the meantime, enjoy a few pictures from the night, and get ready for the full production this May.
