"...Fresh off the bus, he's been assigned a weekend guardian in the form of anti-BMOC Droz (Piven), the head of an on-campus fraternity affectionately known as “the Pit.” The Pit, it should be obvious, is National Lampoon's Delta House reborn, a squalid, smoke-shrouded, thoroughly cool hellhole that's home to those few students who refuse to give in to the “causeniks” and “womynists” who make up the majority of Port Chester's student body. When President Garcia-Thompson (or Dean Wormer, if you're a really big NatLam fan) hands the Pit a $7000 bill for damages incurred, well, there's really nothing else to do but throw a really, really big party (featuring a tuneless house band called “Everyone Gets Laid”) to scrape up the requisite cash..."

Rob Halverson and friends wrap live music around some heavy fiction
DAILY Arts  July 18, 2017, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...Rob Halverson: The Grapes of Wrath 75 Project started a couple years ago when I partnered with the National Steinbeck Center to create new media to explore modern themes like peoples’ rights, the banking crisis, immigration issues, and climate change – “Dust Bowl Ogallala" is a song! – and all of that while looking through John Steinbeck's lens on the 75th anniversary of his Great Depression-era novel. We’ve held yearly concerts locally and have been so lucky to’ve had really great artists and writers involved – like Thor Harris, Abra Moore, Sara Hickman, Amparo Garcia-Crow, and many others. Gretchen Phillips and Dickie Lee Erwin – I mean, c’mon! The project’s proven to be a great way for artists to create and perform together and connect with the public in a cool and unique way. And this season we decided to do a mashup with another novel, Orwell’s 1984. So here we are!..."
