This is the second to last entry in my series, Women In The Performing Arts. Cathy McNeela is the director of the musical theatre degree on the beautiful campus of Elon University. She has built a dynamic performing arts program "with a heart." Another example of a power house female college theatre educator.
"Buzzer" weaves a pretty implausible plot in which Suzy, a tightly-wound Harvard grad and inner-city teacher, puts up with unceasing street harassment as well as her boyfriend's in-recovery pal Don crashing in their new pad for six months. That such a successful man as Jackson would endure this tests the limits of believability.
Peer pressure, poverty, violence, and drugs at home and in the schools is too much torment for a young mind to accomplish the necessary grades to graduate and live a fulfilling life, not to mention the cultural and economic challenges. There is however, an organization called in ENACT that is doing exciting, innovative work.
