Northeastern Happenings: Casting Calls from Theater to Freakonomics

A lot of notes have been fluttering in recently regarding organizations looking for an energized individual like yourself, so here is our overview of some talent searches happening now, notably from the NU Theater Department and Freakonomics author Steven Levitt!

NU Theater Department

One Flea Spare by Naomi Wallace and Company – A Musical Comedy by Stephen Sondheim will be performed this October and November here at Northeastern University, and you can sign up for an audition slot starting at 8:30 AM on Tuesday, September 4th, 2012 in the Department of Theater’s main office at 180 Ryder Hall.

Performers have the option of presenting 1 monologue + 1 song or 2 monologues (2 minutes combined max).

Freakonomics’ Steven Levitt

From his blog:

“I’ve got a lot of smart friends, and they come up with some pretty good ideas.  (I even have an idea myself once in a while!) Occasionally, these ideas take the form of potential internet businesses.  Although we have incubated some interesting businesses up until now, there is too much talking and not enough doing.


It is time for that to change, and we want to open up a little Chicago office to pursue these ideas. We need some superhuman talent to make it a success.

If you think you have what we are looking for, send a resume to, and let’s get the fun started!”

For those of you that want to pursue interests in “rogue economics” as a developer, looks like a good deal!
