'Little Women' - times two - at CU in April

The timeless story of the March sisters — Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy — in Louisa May Alcott’s beloved 19th-century novel, “Little Women,” has long been hailed as a romance, a quest story, a moral meditation on virtue and even a proto-feminist exploration of choices. The tale has been adapted countless times for stage, film and musical presentation. Now, in an unusual “double-feature,” the University of Colorado Theatre & Dance Department and College of Music will present two distinct musical visions of Little Women, composer Mark Adamo’s opera and the Broadway musical by Allan Knee, Mindi Dickstein and Jason Howland.

Change to display name management will give more control to account owners

With the impending retirement of CULink and the moving of e-mail accounts to Gmail and Microsoft Office 365, the way display names are managed will change too. A display name is the name in the From line that an e-mail recipient sees. This change will not impact the delivery of e-mail, but in some cases, it might change the way someone’s name appears on outgoing e-mails. Learn more.
