Today, in honor of Valentine's Day, I want to share with you a special exclusive "love-themed" video preview from Mask and Wig's very funny spring show "Oh the Humanities" which just opened up on campus.

...This summer I had the opportunity to read an early treatment of Mask and Wig's 121st annual spring show "Oh the Humanities!" and it was great! I encourage everyone to see it if they can.

In the video above, a male artist woos a girl with a love song about painting her.


UPenn
Here's the juicy synopsis:
In Mask and Wig's 121st Annual Production, "Oh, the Humanities!" The Mask and Wig Club takes its patrons back to one of the most inspirational, creative, and reasonable places in history: Florence, Italy during the Renaissance
Michelangelo is the new up-and-coming artist in Florence, while Leonardo Da Vinci is the perennial powerhouse Renaissance man. But Leo's girlfriend Mona Lisa smooches Mike in public, making the front page of the tabloids! Suddenly, Mike is widely successful and Leo has fallen from his perch. However, the political genius Machiavelli, seeing that Da Vinci is down and out, offers his help as an art agent. Almost overnight Da Vinci's paintings are selling for mega-florins again and Mike is just a passing fad. But all is not as it seems. What shifty business is Machiavelli up to? What is Mike up against? Paints, plots, and the classical beauty of our eight-"girl" kickline, all in this year's Mask and Wig masterpiece: "Oh, the Humanities!"
Want to see the show?

Due to continued delays in the renovation of our Historic Clubhouse, this year's production will be held at the Prince Music Theater (1412 Chestnut St, Philadelphia, PA 19102).

As I did last year, the Glee Club was allowing people to place *orders here to send Singing Valentines to "that special someone."

...And this year the Glee Club is teaming up with the Penn's Chapter of Habitat for Humanity. All proceeds will benefit the mission of Habitat for Humanity to provide affordable housing to all those in need.  So you're really spreading the love to those in need when you place your order!

Thanks to Fan Zhou (C'10) from the Glee Club, once again I placed my order to send a Singing Valentine to you and all of my readers... my "special someones".  It comes from the Glee Club to you ... via video!

Thank you readers out there for coming back each day! 

University of PennsylvaniaAnd I would also like to take this opportunity to dedicate this video to the memory of the Glee Club's former director, Bruce "Monty" Montgomery.  (click here to see exclusive DT videos from when the Glee Club honored Monty on his 80th birthday)

Get serenaded above!

Check back tomorrow for another Love Week '09 post!

*NOTE: Singing Valentines will NOT be sold for the next day after 4 PM the day before. PLEASE purchase your Valentines before then!  NO MORE VALENTINES WILL BE SOLD FOR THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 2009! SORRY!

Get your tickets to the Glee Club's next show "Back to the Future! The Musical!" here!
Showdates are Feb. 26, 27, and 28 at the Zellerbach theater

UPenn
Yesterday, I posted a video about a Penn alum asking our Penn in Pictures panel about the art of the pitch.

Today's question from our audience to both Sherri and Lew is:
"Why was your Spec Script Successful?
...and What is some good advice in terms of writing one?"

Any suggestions of your own to offer our Penn community?  Comment below!





Check back next week for Sherri's answer on "Where she gets ideas for stories on "Brothers and Sisters?""

A special thanks to editor David Chalfin (C'96), a fantastic editor living in Los Angeles who recorded and edited all the Penn in Pictures videos. Check out his reel here!
