    Tony's Bio:
    A bio is always hard to write at my age (think grandfather). I have taught economics for 31 years, the last 21 at CSS. For four of those years I was the school's Athletic Director adding track and field and Nordic skiing, and laying ground work for football and women's hockey. I am married with two grown children. My daughter is working on her PhD in Chemistry as the Univ. of Chicago and she is the mother of my grandson, which is pretty cool. My son is a screen writer in LA. Eight of his scripts have been produced. He is also a licensed private investigator, which is odd.

Opening Night

It is opening night for the play I directed, Arthur Miller’s Resurrection Blues.  Yes, I am an Economics professor; but, I also have over 30 years of theater experience.  This is the second play I have directed.  It’s a play about the potential crucifixtion of a Christ-like person.  And, it’s a comedy.  Very different for Miller who is most famous for Death of a Salesman.  We will be only the fourth U.S. production of the play and the first academic/non-professional production.  Our dress rehearsal yesterday went very well.  Tonight the reviewer from the paper will be there and the audience will have paid money to see the show.

The CSS theater has three or four productions a year.  There is no theater major so it is open to anyone on campus.  Guys are always needed.  The plays are always “academic” (no Neil Simon) and, this year range from a Greek play to Miller with Pride and Prejudice in there as well.  There is a full time costumer and scenic designer so the production values are very high. 

This is Homecoming weekend so there’s lots going on.  Next week is when most students will have a couple of midterms with a paper or two due.  What that means for me is that it is time to start grading and the grading won’t stop until Christmas.
