Madlala-Routledge will present “Democracy Needs Leaders Who are Prepared to Serve the People,” on Wednesday, April 23 at 4 p.m. in the School of Medicine Education Building, Room 120. The lecture is free and open to the public.

‘Oh What a Lovely War’ performed
Theater Emory presents “Oh What a Lovely War,” a milestone in the theater of war, April 17-27 in the Mary Gray Monroe Theater.

Donald McManus directs this work created by Joan Littlewood’s Theatre Workshop, which premiered in London in 1963. It is a chronicle of World War I told through songs and documents of the period. Poignant events and stark images of suffering are juxtaposed with satirical clowning, comic skits and song and dance numbers, in the spirit of English music hall entertainments.

Show times and tickets ($18; faculty/staff, alumni, $14; Emory students $6) are available by calling 404-727-5050 or by visiting www.arts.emory.edu.
