review class offer
tickets to Jekyll & Hyde
In the summer of 2002, I took a “Writing the Review” class taught by Christopher Rawson, the local paper’s drama critic. It was an awesome summer with excuses to go to movies, art galleries, theatre, museums, and more, all for school.
Our professor offered everyone in the class the opportunity to go to the Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera opening nights with him: free tickets to the show, the chance to write your own review sitting at the computer next to him as he composed the one that would be in the paper the next morning, and a tour of the newspaper offices. Out of a class of around 40, only two of us took him up on the offer (both of us older, nontraditional students). I went to Jekyll & Hyde with him; he even said he added a couple of my comments into the final article.
