Tennessee Williams LogoNamed a “Big Event for September” by the Chicago Tribune, the Tennessee Williams Tribute features a variety of events for fans of all ages, held annually in honor of Columbus’ most famous resident.  Many of the events will be hosted on The W campus.

 

Fans of the playwright will have opportunities to see “Period of Adjustment” performed by the Columbus Community Theatre in Rent Auditorium of Whitfield Hall. There will be four performances of “Adjustment” on Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Friday at 8:00 p.m.

Music lovers will rejoice at “Autumn Song”, a song cycle of Williams’ poetry set to music by George Mauer. The event will be held in Poindexter Hall on Thursday at 7:30 p.m.

Complete the week with Elizabeth Taylor and Katherine Hepburn. Williams scholar Dr. Stuart Noel will present his paper and discuss the film “Suddenly Last Summer,” followed by a showing of the film in Nissan Auditorium of Parkinson Hall, Saturday at 9:00 a.m.“Period of Adjustment” is free to students, faculty, and staff of The W, with campus ID. Free tickets for “Autumn Song” are available to students, faculty, and staff of The W through the Columbus Arts Council. “Saturday at the Movies” is a free event.
