From the Editor:
Hello and welcome to this edition of the Bedford Square News!
Yes, our Bedford Square News has got a new look. For this issue, we’ve been joined by artists Sruti and Mahika, who created the cover art that no doubt caught your attention. The original hangs in the Student Affairs Office, and you’re more than welcome to come have a look. It’s a nod to BSN’s London roots before we expand further beyond the British Isles come Spring Break.
Speaking of traveling, earlier this semester NYUL’s Global Orientations took a group of students out to Liverpool; in this issue, photographer Edwin shares his trip with us through a different lens. I hope this collection inspires all the travelers and photographers out there to participate in the upcoming Spring Break Photo Contest.
But back to London. One of the perks of being in Bloomsbury is that London’s famed West End is only little under a mile from us. The revived 1970s musical Company returns to London rearranged for a modern audience in the Gielgud Theatre, and Alice, a writer of ours, shares her experience of the show. Of course, as we all know, London’s theatre scene extends well beyond West End. Another writer of ours, Juliana, brings us a review of Cypress Avenue from the Royal Court Theatre, a show which has returned to London for a four-week-run from various performances around the world.
If you’re a Marvel fan with a countdown ticking towards the April Endgame debut like me, Captain Marvel must be on your bucket list. It was amazing. Watch it. There’s a cinema a block away at the other end of the Square. If you need any further convincing, our writer Sonali has given her review of the newest Marvel blockbuster that brought in $760m worldwide (box office) since its release on March 8th.
And finally, for those of you planning (or already planned) the absolute Spring Break getaway with your friends, our writer Julia has a few tips from experience that just might come in handy when it comes to friends and fun.
So please, have a seat, and let us show you what we’ve been up to. Enjoy!
All my best,
Editor, Spring 2019
