The new season of the William Simpson Fine Arts Series at Springfield College will entertain and inspire.
Experience the arts with magnificent work from artists and performers from both inside and outside the Springfield College community. Attendees will be dazzled by dance performances and theater presentations, captivated by art exhibitions and thought-provoking film, and delighted by concerts and literary events.
Programs are open to the public and most events are free of charge.
“If laughter really is the best medicine, Avner Eisenberg could easily cure everything that ails you. He’s a clown in the truest sense of the word...You’ve got to see it to believe it can be this much fun.” - Boston Metro
“Here is what Avner the Eccentric does best: He reduces his audience to laughter and giggles and applause.” - New York Times
“If you miss Avner, you’ll be sorry and your life will turn to ashes, and it won’t be my fault because I warned you.” - The Edmonton Journal
“If you think of Lewis Black solely as a curmudgeonly comedian whose default setting is a state of apoplexy at the imbecility of his fellow man, you might be surprised by One Slight Hitch. It’s not unexpected that Hitch should abound in snappy wisecracks and keen social observation. Those, after all, are hallmarks of Black’s stand-up act and his appearances on The Daily Show. But what is that we detect on Black’s sleeve at the end of his play? Is that his … heart?” The Boston Globe
