At Sea

  • Mark Harvey Levine (‘85) (Book and Lyrics for “Carried Away”, 1983 Spring Musical) is having one of his plays performed at sea! City Theatre of Miami is producing his short play “Oy Vey Maria” as part of “Shorts On Ships”. It will be performed at sea, around the world on a cruise ship of the Azamara Club Line, a division of Royal Caribbean Cruises. Mark has had over 1500 productions of his plays around the world, but this is his first production that’s not on land. He’d love to hear from old CMU friends. Contact him at [email protected].


  • SnS alumni Shannon Deep (‘10, ‘11) and Scott Wasserman (‘10) run a podcast called Song and Salad where they write a new song every week in a random style about a random topic and document the process.
