It truly feels like summer has arrived and it should be a great weekend in Los Angeles! We’re spending the summer in the basement of Royce Hall gearing up for the 2010-11 season, planning ahead for the appearances of truly amazing artists on the lineup this year.
Summer’s great, but we can’t wait for fall when the halls and theater above us will be filled with music and dancers and creative thinkers—and well, hopefully YOU.
Side note: I was watching “Family Guy” the other day and a few scenes of the episode took place on some unnamed college campus. Guess what building/area was the iconic image immortalized in cartoon form to signify “collegiate-looking space?” Yep. It was the front of Royce Hall and surrounding quad area.
Anyway, we UCLA Live staffers have been talking amongst ourselves about our favorite shows on the season and we decided to film a little video about it—also using that iconic Royce Hall backdrop.
Take a little peek into the minds of the people who help make performing arts come alive in Royce Hall. Don’t be scared, we’re mostly sane.
So, what do you think? What event are you most looking forward to this season? Better yet, get out into the sunshine this weekend and film your own video telling us about your favorite pick of the UCLA Live 2010-11 season. (For ideas, peruse our calendar here).
