All aboard for this saucy and splendid production of Anything Goes, winner of three 2011 Tony® Awards including Best Musical Revival and Choreography. Peppering this Cole Porter first-class comedy are some of musical theatre’s most memorable standards, including “I Get a Kick out of You,” “You’re the Top” and of course, “Anything Goes.” Don’t miss what the Associated Press exclaims as, “So delightful, so delicious, so de-lovely!”

7:30 PM - 9:30 PM “Where Are all the Women? Wikipedia’s Gender Gap”

Wikipedia is one of the most commonly referenced encyclopedias in the world – more than 450 million people visit the website each month. Unlike other encyclopedias, Wikipedia’s content is written by volunteer editors from around the world. However, the site faces a serious gender gap that can influence that content.

Some Wikipedia visitors may be surprised to learn that nearly 90 percent of the site’s volunteer editors are male. The editors also tend to be mostly white and college educated. As a result, users are more likely to find more information about men and male-related topics than they are about women and female-related topics.

On March 4-5, the West Virginia University Reed College of Media and the WVU Libraries will co-sponsor a panel discussion and faculty workshop addressing the gender gap.

PANEL EVENT

The panel event, “Where Are all the Women? Wikipedia’s Gender Gap,” will be held Wednesday, March 4, at 7:30 p.m. in room G20 of Ming Hsieh Hall. Moderated by WVULibraries Dean Jon Cawthorne, the panel will address the lack of female editors at Wikipedia and why we should care, barriers to entry for women and how executives associated with Wikipedia are working to close the gender gap. The event is free and open to the public. For those who cannot attend, the panel also will be webcast live.

7:30 PM The Spinners

The Spinners were the greatest soul group of the early ‘70s. Their music defined the lush, seductive sound of Philly soul. With 12 gold records, 18 Top 40 hits, and six Grammy nominations to their credit, they are more popular today than ever. Original member Henry Fambrough is joined onstage by lead singer Charlton Washington, high tenor Marvin Taylor, tenor Ronnie Moss and bass singer Jessie Peck. The five are backed by a soul-infused five-piece band and the result is sophisticated, up-tempo R&B with precision choreography. “Working My Way Back to You,” “Then Came You,” “Games People Play,” “The Rubberband Man,” and the list goes on. Don’t miss this unforgettable evening of music in the intimate atmosphere of the Creative Arts Center’s Lyell B. Clay Theatre.
