Main character Haley Walker is a single mom (of a teen) and runs a business–understandably, for her, the dating scene is extremely difficult. A cross between performance and confession, Bad Dates is the story of a very busy woman trying to find love. You will find yourself enthralled by Haley Walker’s story; you’ll laugh and you’ll wince. Enjoy this great performance, and if you’re on the dating scene, good luck out there.
For $26 you can see this hilarious new show! Visit the website for more information.

Once again, WLOY wants to send you to opening night at the Hippodrome! This time to see the remarkable theatrical version of War Horse on February 4th. Win tickets at our Thursday Coffeehouse events and during our Friday Live at Boulder shows.
A remarkable tale of courage, loyalty and friendship. England, 1914.
As World War One begins, Joey, young Albert’s beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped from England to France. He’s soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary journey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man’s land. But Albert cannot forget Joey and, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home.
This powerfully moving and imaginative drama, filled with stirring music and songs, is a show of phenomenal inventiveness that is currently playing to packed houses in London and New York. At its heart are astonishing life-sized puppets created by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, that bring to life breathing, galloping, charging horses strong enough for men to ride.
The performances are daily from 2/4-2/9, with 8:00pm shows during the week and 2 shows on Saturday (2 & 8pm) and Sunday (1:00 & 6:30pm). More details and tickets can be found here.

Kat and I had the distinct pleasure of sitting down with former Loyola Professor and forever musical genius Kevin Gift, who is also known as Wendel Patrick. Between Kevin and Wendel he is releasing a combined number of 4 albums this January, and we had the chance to get a first look, as well find out a little about him. During the interview, we discovered the origin of his alter ego and his musical interests, and we also learned more about his experience teaching at Loyola (with a special appearance from Patricia, his former student and a current WLOY Staffer!) and much more! Listen to the whole interview to hear all about what it’s like to have two names.

Howdy to all those coffee house ramblers and acoustic enthusiasts. This Thursday we commence the WLOY Coffee House late night series with a open mic opportunity. If your talent thrives on a stage, we welcome you. Musicians bring your instruments, poets your words, and contortionists your arms and legs. And even if you aren’t intending on performing, just come to see the talent the Loyola community has been harboring. Performers arrive by 9pm, in the 3rd floor reading room.

During the late 19th and early 20th century, fine book binding enjoyed a golden age of creativity and lavish decoration. These handmade, individual and highly personal objects were made not only to protect the texts they contained, but also to be admired and appreciated as portable decorative masterpieces in their own right. Some binders strove to execute traditional designs at the highest levels of technical proficiency and artistic elegance, while others chose to break away and explore new emerging styles influenced by the Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau and Art Deco movements. This focus show of approximately 20 rarely seen examples from the Walters’ rare book collection will explore techniques and materials that were employed to showcase the book binder’s craft, sometimes resulting in truly fantastical creations.
