The yearly St. Olaf production of Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues made its return last week, but this year, in addition to Ensler's play, several St. Olaf students penned their own monologues for a spin-off dubbed The St. Olaf Monologues.
Many students probably do not know that the Theatre Department has an artist in residence. I was among these students until recently when I had a chance to sit down and talk with Artist-in-Residence Gary Gisselman about his life and career.
Many worthwhile classical performances at St. Olaf seem to involve a handful of students spread amongst a sea of Norwegian sweaters and their married owners happily clasping hands. Espen Jensen's performance last Sunday was no exception. Classical guitarist and recording artist Espen Jensen seemed comfortable and relaxed during a short interview before his solo performance in a packed Studio A in Urness Recital Hall.
