Two cast members MTV’s The Buried Life are coming to Southern Connecticut University to provide a behind-the-scenes look at the show. The reality show was cancelled last year after two seasons, but the creators told US Weekly that they’re working on a “new and improved version” of the show.
The premise of the show involves a group of young adults traveling the country in an RV to complete a bucket list of 100 things they want to do before they die.
The event is Friday at 8 p.m. at the John Lyman Center for Performing Arts on 501 Crescent Street, New Haven. Tickets are $15 for the public.
There have been countless film versions of A Christmas Carol, from the Muppets’ version to straight-laced interpretations with thespians Albert Finney and Alec Guiness. But odds are you’ve never seen the one being screened at Quinnipiac University on Dec. 3.
“For 50 years, [The Stingiest Man in Town] has been the Holy Grail of the Dickens world, an adaptation that everyone wanted to see,” said Fred Guida, a former, part-time Quinnipiac communications professor and organizer of the event, in a press release. “In a nutshell, it’s big. It’s the single most sought-after version of ‘A Christmas Carol’ out there.”
The Stingiest Man in Town will be shown in Echlin 101 on the Mount Carmel Campus at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 3. The screening is free and open to the public.
