The use of Geographical Information System (GIS) applications are arguably the most important tools we have today to summarize, analyze, and visualize geographic data, or data that occurs over space and time.  In fact, any sets of data (from physical features of our world to patterns of biodiversity, to social/political/ cultural information for the people who live or move about our planet can be mapped. In a world full of big, publicly available datasets, as well as new ones that anyone can generate with GPS coordinates, GIS methods are tools to describe and solve all manner of environmental, social, political, scientific challenges and problem-solving.

Location: Lower Depths Theater, 1st Floor, Comm./Music Complex

Cost: $12 Admission, $8 w/Student ID, Seniors, Loyola Faculty/Staff Get Tickets

The Spitfire Grill music and book by James Valq; lyrics and book by Fred Alley; based on the film by the same name by Lee David Zlotoff. Directed by C. Patrick Gendusa.                             

Winner of the Richard Rodgers Production Award, administered by The American Academy of Arts and Letters, this musical depicts the journey of a young woman just released from prison who decides to start her life anew in a rural Wisconsin town. In The New York Times, Ben Brantley wrote that “the songs are shiny with tunefulness, hope, and all-American inflections of country and folk." Also in The New York Times, Alvin Klein declared the show “a soul-satisfying new musical. The Spitfire Grill is a complete work of theatrical resourcefulness. A compelling story that flows with grace and carries the rush of anticipation. The warm, indigenous American folk sound of Mr. Valcq’s score is, harmonically and melodically, as theatrical as it is grass roots. Mr. Alley’s lyrics accomplish the considerable feat of poetically offering inspiration while holding the syrup. The musical is freeing. It is penetrated by honesty and it glows.”
