"Am I hungry enough to pay this much for this sandwich?"

Hartmann Center is a wonder of the world unbeknownst to many. With the most beautiful architecture one could image, the building stands tall near circle drive on campus. You walk in to the scene shop and see hundreds of names written and etched onto each and every brick that forms the building we stand in. Each name in a precise but crazy array across the walls. Each accompanied by a familiar catch phrase or joke. Scribbled in every corner there one could possibly reach. The smell of paint is prominent and lingers in the air. You hear the familiar noise of set crew painting or hammering final set changes. Stage lights are shining bright. Actors bustling, prepping prop tables and doing mic checks. The stage manager runs around quickly muttering to herself with slight interruptions when she finds herself humming the tune that will soon be sung in front of a 200 person crowd in the rotunda theatre. The crowd mutters and confides in each other that they heard that the show was “fabulous” and “amazing.” The director posts a small picture of little peep candies that reads “Break a leg, peeps. I Love You All!” This theatre has housed hundreds of thousands of amazing talents who performed in countless numbers. Walking into the Hartmann Center is a breath of fresh air. The floors may be paint covered and dirty and the building may not be known by many. It is like a wallflower. Waiting to be discovered to truly show its amazing colors. With secrets and tales that will outlast the building itself. The theatre is a joy in itself and I am glad I am privileged to be one of the few who gets to experience this wonderful aura of the building. It’s the small things that bring joy to us and we should come to appreciate them.
