Best of Theater - Continued

Best of Business

BUSINESSES
Continued from Page 9B
Best Books:
Borders Books and Music
Coffee, music and the largest selec-
tion of books downtown fill two sto-
ries on the corner of Maynard and
East Liberty.
Best Textbooks:
Ulrich 'S
Almost as roomy as a residence hall
on campus, this store on the corner of
State and N. University is always
staffed with people who actually know
where your textbooks for the next
semester can be found.
Best Tanning Salons:
Supertans/Tanfastic/
State St. Beach (tie)
For a healthy dose of radiation and a
fake-looking tan, these places are great.
Best Haircut:
Noggins
Located on S. University Avenue,
it's the perfect place for an affordable,
quality haircut.

Best First-run Theater:
Showcase
It's where you go to see all the new
major movies, if you don't mind tak-
ing the bus or driving to the intersec-
tion of US-23 and I-94, off Carpenter
Road.
Best Test Prep:
Kaplan
Kaplan, found on E. Liberty,
enables everyone to score high on
their GREs, MCATs and LSATs, or
at least, it makes them think they
can.
Best Video Store:
Hollywood Video
Located off-campus, the store's
shelves and shelves of videos offer a
great selection of movies for a cheap
date.
Best Party Store:
Campus Corner
Where college students can find
everything from bleach to chips. Plus,
it's open late at night at the corner of
Packard and State.

Best MUSKET Actress:
None
While all of the actresses featured
in "The Wiz" gave good perfor-
mances, unfortunately, no one per-
former stood out as being "the best"
in the show.
Best Rude Mechanicals
Production:
"All in the Timing"
It was a relief to see that contem-
porary comedy was served well with
David Ives' set of one-act vignettes.
Unfortunately, director Adam Weiner
chose to present only half of what
Ives orginally created. Maybe for
next year: "All in the Timing 2"?
Best Rude Mechanicals
Actor:
Kristopher Chung,
Macbeth in "Macbeth"
This young performer came to the
University and was instantly cast in
last year's untimely dead "King
Lear." Returning to Rude
Mechanicals this year to portray the
Scottish thane, Chung showed his
Shakespearean versatility.
Best Rude Mechanicals
Actress:
Karen Wooley, Lady
Macbeth in "Macbeth"
A far cry from Audrey II in
SophShow's "Little Shop of Horrors"

two years ago. this Lady is both an
honored singer and actress at the I
We hope she was finally able to
remove that spot of blood from her
hand.
Best Basement Arts
Production:
"The Tempest" (upcom-
ing)
While Basement Arts seemed to
flounder this year, it did manage to
present a healthy offering for winter
semester. Although none of the pro-
ductions stood out, "The Tempest"
seems to be an interesting attempt to
deliver a Shakespearean work in the
University's small black-box Arena
Theater.
Best Newcomer to
Basement Arts:
Benjamin Hurvitz
This promising playwright pre-
sented a new play this season.
Hopefully his new, vibrant talent will
give way to the next Arthur Miller of
the University campus.
Best Gathering of Future
Actors and Actresses:
Casting call for "The Real
World" and "Road Rules"
More than 500 students showed up
for the scam of the century. No where
else could such a large gathering of
hopefuls be found. If you're fond of
actors. Touchdowns was the place to be.

Honorable Mentions:
The Entire Cast of "A
Midsummer Night's
Dream"
It is becoming a tradition within
the musical theater department to
showcase the acting talents of its
students with a non-musical theater
production each February. Last year
saw a presentation of a play by then-
University Prof. Ari Roth. This year,
the department, under Phillip Kerr's
direction, presented an eclectic ver-
sion of the Shakespearean love swap
pseudo-porno.
Michael T. Newberry of
"Rude Mechanicals"
This passionate student devotes
most of his. time to UAC's Rude
Mechanicals. Having directed last
year's "A Few Good Men," and this
year's "Macbeth," this boy knows
how to direct a show. Recently
appearing in "All in the Timing,"
Newberry has thrust upon the
University his lust for the theater.
Not bad for an Engineering student.
"West Side Story" (open-
ing tonight)
Not having opened by the time of
this printing, an honest opinion of the
show cannot be given. However, this
evening's cast looks to be stunning.
