2) Collegewise Offers Free Seminar 
on How to Start the College Application Process

Thursday June 13

Choosing which college or university you should apply to is one of the most daunting choices facing high school kids today. Outside of deciding which filter to use on their next social media post. Unfortunately, most high school students don’t have access to their school counselor to spend time discussing the application process. The national average student-counselor ratio was 482 to 1 in the most recent survey leaving counselors stretched to give teens the answers and attention they need to make critical college application decisions. Which is why, on June 13thCollegewise, the nation’s largest private college counseling company, is offering a free webinar on how to start the application process by creating your college list of schools you might want to apply too.

The webinar will help explain the process of creating the perfect college list and cover FAQs such as: How many colleges should I apply to? How can I make sure I have a balanced list? How do I begin researching colleges? What are the best resources for college research?

PUBLIC SERVANT

Now Open

Theater Breaking Through Barriers (Samuel D. Hunter’s The Healing) kicks off its 40th Anniversary with the World Premiere of PUBLIC SERVANT by Bekah Brunstetter (NBC’s Emmy-winning drama This Is Us and the just announced Oklahoma TV series). Directed by Geordie Broadwater, the production stars Chris Henry Coffey (Broadway’s Bronx Bombers, David Schwimmer’s Trust opposite Clive Owen and Viola Davis), Christine Bruno (Jose Rivera’s adaption of The Maids, Bekah Brunstetter’s Forgotten Corners... with TBTB) and newcomer Anna Lentz in her Off-Broadway debut. The play is the second part of a trilogy of plays by Brunstetter that kicked off with The Cake in February at Manhattan Theatre and is now playing at Theatre Row's Clurman Theatre.

In PUBLIC SERVANT, Ed has been newly elected as County Commissioner. Ed is one of the good ones. With his daughter Hannah by his side, he is going to change the world -- or at least his little corner of it. Meanwhile, all world-weary Miriam needs is to sell her late Mother’s house. Disillusioned with the system but desperate, she turns to Ed for help with what should be a simple request. But in the world of politics, is anything ever simple?

PUBLIC SERVANT runs through June 29 at Theatre Row's Clurman Theatre (410 West 42nd Street, between 9th and 10th Avenues). Performances are Tuesday - Wednesday at 7pm, Thursday - Friday at 8pm, Saturday at 3pm & 8pm, and Sunday at 3pm. Tickets are $58, available at 212-239-6200 or visit www.telecharge.com.
