considered which changes were
interesting and which were too
much. We've really changed al-
most nothing, except personal
pronouns, plus a very few al-
terations in certain lines that
could not work when exchang-
ed.''
IS THIS really the point? What'
is their justification for the
change? "Justification?" says
producer Stern. "Our purpose
is simply to give the audience
a great time.
"Although the male female
switch brings up some interest-
ing points, and some very fun-
ny scenes, we are not trying
to make a big feminist state-
ment or anything like that. We
aren't trying to improve the
show, either, because von can't
improve on a masterpiece.
"What we can do is add our
own creativity," Stern con-
tinues, "a spice which always
makes things more interesting
for the audience. If you think
that's a dumb idea, I sinnose
it was dumb to do an all-black,
modernized "Wizard of Oz",
although that resnited in, "The
Wiz" which is still running af-
ter winning Best Musical of
1972. I suppose it was dumb
to stage "A Midsummer
Night's Dream" on tranezes and
trampolines -- but when Peter
Brooks did it with the Royal
Shakespeare Company, it was
such a success in London that
they broight it to New York,
where it was a fantastic
smash.
Possibly so, but such inspir-
ations have a tendency to draw
enemies. Student shows are of-
ten attacked by script rental
companies, usually for finan-
cial reasons - a show is not
paying royalties, or is charging
more for tickets than they re-
ported. Copyright and perfor-
mance laws can cause even
more complications because
they are ,unclear on just how
much a performing organiza-
tion can alter an author's
work. Still the Soph show troupe
nourishes some concern that

its production may be seen1
in some quarters as an irre-
verant and therefore illegal in-J
terpretation' of the original. 1
"As law usually goes, that's
a fuzzy issue," Stern explains.
"Technically you are not sup-1
posed to make script altera-
tions, but A: it is done all the
time, and B: our alterations,'
though they may seem to be
drastic, are very minor. Nat-
urally the laws exist to discour-
age any Joe-off-the-street from
butchering a musical or mis-
representing its idea. But in
our show, very few words have
been changed, no music has
been changed, and the whole
production is still faithful to the
beauty and satire of the orig-
inal. The companies that hold'
rights for musicals are really
mostly concernedabout royal-
ties : understandably so-
that's their business. Of course,
we are paying complete royal-
ties and everything. There is
no question about our financial
obligations."
rHIS "HOW TO SUCCEED"
also involves larger con-
sequences for Soph Show in
general which has always held
some'- ' tenuous ground.
Soph Show may be, and often
is, thought of as Musket's
younger sister: it is the an-
nual UAC musical presenta-
tion put on (mostly) by fresh-
people and sophomores. Yet
Soph Show has so vacillated in
quality and in its ability to
make money that inevitably
someone periodically motions to
eliminate it altogether..
The motions have always

failed, but two years ago one
came very close to success.
For Soph Show '74, UAC told
the producer, then - sopho-
more Robert Bianco (who has
since gone on to produce Mus-
ket's "Godspell", "Guys and l
Dolls" and others), that unless'
their production broke even
financially, Soph Show would
be scrapped. That was the year
of "Damn Yankees", a produc-
tion which sold out, actually
turned a profit, and made Soph
Show much more popular-and
secure. Still, partly because of
last year's disorganization, part-
ly out of financial considera-
tions, there is "word around"
that Soph Show must provel
itself again.
Were there no Sonh Show,
several hindred highly talent-
ed inderclassnersons would be
totally out of the theatre pic-'
ture. Musket does not have
room for them. 'while any al-
ternative less than a full pro-
duction deprives them of vital
exnerience in the art of mount-
ing a maior show. "How to
Sucreed" is a pivotal show. If
it fails, Soph Show will be in a
bad noinon. If it triumphs, no
n will fnreat it-ertainlv not
if this UAC hoard has anything
to do with it.
"Theater is not and never ha's
been a cautiouis art." says di-
rector Shaniro, turning away
for a moment from a rehear-
sal he's managing. He loork
hark un toward the stage and
tells an actor, "You're putting
me to sleen." He shouts to an-
other, "I CAN'T HEAR YOU!"

As an afterthought he adds, "I
don't believe you either."
T TNLIKE THOSE who may
scoff at the idea that a
University musical production
can be a legitimate form of art,
Shapiro takes the musical and
his part in it seriously. "This
isn't a Chekhov play," he
laughs, "but it demands a lot
of concentration and a lot of
inventiveness on the actor's
part. Our male / female switch,
of course, has created several
new problems in characteriza-
tion, but we're solving them;
they are very interesting."
Megnwhile, choreographer
Sherri Fenkel, last year's as-
sistant choreographer for "Hel-
lo Dolly", works feverishlyj
with soloists, racing between
notes on 'her chair and the danc-
ing, area. Music director Leif
Bjland walks by with armloads
of orchestral parts, Stage Man-
ager Bill Holb studies set blue-
prints, and Publicity Head Tom
Wiese designs exnosure stra-
tegy with Stern. "Our publicity
campaign is extensive", says
Stern, "but it has to be care-
fully managed because we
don't have a huge bankroll."
At midnight, Stern closes up
the UAC Center, and heads out
into the snow. "You know what
they say," he grins, "No Guts,
No Glory".

We have been in Ann Arbor for ten years and have experienced rental
inflation as has everyone else. During this time, our services to our residents have
increased, and we are still trying to do our best.
When you are spending hundreds of dollars, you want to be sure you are
getting your moneysworth. At UNIVERSITY TOWERS APARTMENTS we
know our tenants are getting services equivalent toevery penny spent.
Even though our tenants are satisfied, there is still room for improvement.
Although most other landlords in Ann Arbor have raised their rates, RESIDENTS
OF UNIVERSITY TOWERS HAVE NOT EXPERIENCED A RATE
INCREASE SINCE SEPTEMBER 1975. In addition, no other landlord can offer
all these services, 4 month winter leases (single liabiilty-you are responsible only
for your own rent), furnished apartments, weekly maid service, a laundromat,
24 hour security, movies and parties that are free for all residents-all that and
more within a three minute walk to the Diag.
We want your college experience to be enjoyable and memorable. You
should not have to worry about any problems that might occur while living in
an apartment-that is our busiqess.
So if you are looking for an apartment for winter term, we are located at
the corner of South University and South Forest. We are not afraid to show
you what we have to offer.
