Forget watching some stranger on
television buy a vowel, solve the puzzle,
go bankrupt and spin that wheel. No
longer do you have to wonder why all
these losers are winning money and
free trips for two to Cancun and Hawaii,
while you are sitting home alone with a
bag of chips and remote in hand.
This is not just any wheel ... it's THE

"Pamela' said she also enjoys acting in
University Productions shows because
she always learns new things.
"My favorite show was 'Three
Sisters,"' she said. "It was just a beautiful
production. It's the best when the payoff is
the work and not just the performance."
Opera Workshop Director Joshua
Major said the high-caliber professors,
directors and designers are important
factors in the quality of the productions.
This season is a prime example of
just how professional the University's
program is. In addition to bringing in
guest directors for spring dramas
"Dancing at Lughnasa" and "Wedding
Band," the dance program has brought
in Mary Cochran, a choreographer
from the Paul Taylor Dance Company,
to recreate a famous modern dance for
a portion of the February performance
"We're going to take full advantage
of the University Orchestra this term,"
head choreographer Peter Sparling said.
In addition, he said. the set will be an
imposing, ominous-looking forest on
the Power Center stage. "We're looking
forward to a strong visual impact"
It may not be long before the students
on stage are the professionals, however.
Fredricksen said Four Quest, a national
theater production company, has
expressed interest in picking up the
University's version of "Sherlock
Holmes" for production next fall.
"The show may have a life after this,"
he said. "If it goes, a lot of students who
don't have to come back to school could
go on tour with them in September."
Justin Burleson, a first-year student in
the BFA design and production program,
said that University Productions "gets
you going for what you need to know"
With all the professional-caliber per-
formances, the students hope audiences
appreciate their efforts.
"On the stage you're building a real-
ity out of a big empty space," Friedman
summed up. "It's not just entertain-
ment. It's deeper than that."

as popular theater usually is. Goldoni was
one of the writers who was able to bring
the two streams together consistently."
The story of "Pamela" centers around
a maidservant who, after the death of the
lady she serves, is caught in the classic
dilemma of love versus duty. The son
and heir to the family's fortune, Lord
Bonfil, pursues Pamela doggedly despite
societal restrictions that claim a servant
and a noble cannot marry. Though
Pamela has her own affections toward
Lord Bonfil, she attempts to resist his
advances to preserve her honor.
This version of Goldoni's "Pamela,"
adapted by one of John Russell Brown's
former students, Donald C. McManus,
has come a long way in its 247 years of
existence. Curiously enough, though, it
has failed to appear before tonight in
English. Brown cites subject matter as a
reason for that.
"In Scotland about 15 years ago,"
Brown said, "they were about to do it and
then chickened out, writir

nobody's cheating me. That's important,
'cause if you get cheated then you won't
have any money to go to college with,
he said, laughing. "You'll be broke; bet-
ter hope for a scholarship or something.
"I look at it like this. If I'm doing what
I want to do and I'm having fun and
everyone's happy with what I'm doing,
then I have received my greatest rewards.
Money would be good, but that's really
not the thing to me. Also when we per-
form and girls get crazy we try not to let
it get to our heads, 'cause that's how you
lose your friends, your money and all
those who truly care about you. We like
girls, and we kick it to 'em.
"But we try and handle business first,
'cause that's what's most important.
Thinking you have everything is okay,
but not if it's to the point where you think
you don't need anybody else. Like my
group members. They're my friends. We
need each other because there are a lot of
people out there who act like they're
your friends where they're really not"
When all is said and done, Brandon
wants to be known and remembered, not
as Brandon the singer or Brandon the
performer, but as Brandon the good guy.
"We're like everybody else. We just
want to bring out a single and sell some
records. Me, personally, I'm talkative,
and when it's time to work, I work. I try
to give a good impression to those who
may look up to me. I listen to adults,
and I try to do my job, which is to sing.
"But I'm not into just blindly doing
what everyone tells me too, 'cause I'm
an independent person."

Basement Arts' fall season of nine
plays opened last week with an original
work written and performed by
University student Greta Enszer. The
season will close in December with
another original work by University
students Greg Zola and Jay Stetson,
called "Fleetwod Diner." "If you look at
our season this semester, it is very rep-
resentative. It's a Shakespeare, two
original plays, an original adaptation,
two plays by women, five American
playwrights and one contemporary
Brtish playwright," Greenfield said.
Basement Arts offers and alternative
to the Ann Arbor community. "It is not
an Urban Outfitters' kind of alternative,
but it is an alternative to expensive the-
aters, to the theater of production val-
ues," Greenfield said.
Currently, and in the future, Basement
Arts strives to remain true, whether or not
that may be "correct." They look to pre-
sent compelling productions. Greenfield
said, "I'd like Basement Arts to become
an integral part of the University as much
as athletics are here and yet at the same
time remain autonomous"
