Jonah Platt and UPenn and Spring Awakenings

After the jump, check out my DT roundup of these 4 Penn alumni making news on stage, literature and the arts.





Jonah Platt and UPenn and Spring AwakeningsWe last saw Jonah Platt (C'08, Off the Beat) in a flash mob singing Les Miserables with Megan Mullally on "It's a Brad Brad World".

Jonah lends his great voice to a 2 week production of Spring Awakening at the Hayworth Theater in Los Angeles, July 20-29th (Friday-Sundays).

Listen to his rendition of "Left Behind" above.



Zach Sergi and UPenn and Heroes Rise

Do you have what it takes to become a legendary Powered hero? Zach Sergi (C'10) has created a multiple-choice interactive-fiction game for your mobile devices that you'll want to check out.

 In "Heroes Rise," Powered heroes have become the ultimate celebrities, and you dream of joining the A-List–but to get there, you’ll first have to take down evil Powered gangs, compete with deadly rivals, choose a worthy sidekick, team up with famous champions, and prove to all of Millennia City that you’re a true hero.

At each step, "Heroes Rise," offers a fun, multiple-choice question, putting you in control of the interactive story!





Aaron Karo and Lexapros and Cons and UPenn
Aaron Karo's (W'01, Pennfest 2006 performer, Penn in Pictures 2010 panelist) fourth book (and first novel) Lexapros and Cons is now out. 

It’s the story of Chuck Taylor, a teenager with OCD who is obsessed with Converse and prescribed the antidepressant Lexapro. According to the reviews, it’s “hilariously raunchy” and “laugh out loud.”  In other words, the perfect beach reading companion to Fifty Shades of Grey.




Joan Myerson Shrager (College for Women, School of Education '60) runs an incredible volunteer program with a fellow artist Paula Mandel that has been recognized by Mayor Nutter and Bill Clinton and many in between.

The Stained Glass Project: Windows That Open Doors is changing the world and have impacted the lives of inner city kids in ways you would not believe.

Our latest coup was to be invited to exhibit our work at Drexel University's James E. Marks Intercultural Center(http://www.drexel.edu/now/news-media/releases/archive/2012/April/Stained-Glass-Project/) and now these stained glass windows are being exhibited at LOVE Park and will then be displayed at Independence Mall Visitor Center. FIRSTRUST Bank gave us a $6000 grant to take our students to New Orleans with windows they made for The Morris Jeff Community School. The current set of windows is being donated to The Community partnership School of North Philadelphia.

Our next project is to make windows for The Ojibwa People's School in Redlake Minnesota. Our first ever windows went to South Africa and we were honored by the consul general of South Africa. We are changing the world through art.
