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.”

A Lecture by

Dr. Kim Shelton

Associate Professor

University of California, Berkeley

Martha Sharp Joukowsky Lectureship

free admission and free parking on campus (West Road Garage and the Horseshoe)

Co-sponsored by the Office of the Provost, the Department of Classical Studies and the New Orleans Society of the Archaeological Institute of America

This elaborately illustrated lecture will present the results of eleven seasons of excavation by the Archaeological Society of Athens at ‘Petsas House’ in the settlement of the famous Bronze Age palatial center at Mycenae. A look into a complex structure of the 14th century BCE reveals domestic and workshop use together with an expanding role in the socio-political life of the palace. Pottery, as the primary artifact type, is examined within its production, storage, and distribution contexts. A well, excavated within the building complex, provides evidence for the life of the building, for its violent destruction, and for human agency in a post-destruction reclamation phase. The excavator will present material produced in this workshop alongside a picture of life in the building together with evidence for a relationship to the palace through fragments of Linear B tablets and of contact with the greater Mycenaean and Mediterranean world during the 14th c. BCE.

Please note that the date of the this presentation has changed.  In the event that you cannot attend due to an emergency, please email Professor Suzanne Scalise directly, sscalise@loyno.edu.  

All 1L students (civil and common) are required to attend a character and fitness bar exam presentation provided by the Louisiana State Bar Association (“LSBA”) on Thursday, March 30, 2017, at 12:30pm in room 405.  This presentation will be recorded for evening students and made available by email.  If you are not registered as an evening student, you MUST attend the live presentation.  

In order to sit for ANY BAR EXAM, you MUST pass a state-specific character and fitness investigation.  In most states, including Louisiana, that investigation consists of a very long and thorough application provided by the National Conference of Bar Examiners (“NCBE”).  The NCBE application is long and complicated and students always have questions about it that I cannot answer.  The LSBA's presentation will explain what you should know about character and fitness requirements and the NCBE application process, which process begins at the start of your 2L year. 

Attendance will be recorded and is mandatory for all day students.  Again, a recording will be made available for evening students who cannot attend during the day.  Pizza will be served.

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.”
