Playlist of the Week: “Almost, Maine”


Welcome to the first installment of “Playlist of the Week”. A (hopefully) weekly collection of songs you might like to listen to.

This past weekend was host to the Saint Ignatius Harlequins’ fall production of Almost, Maine. A show filled with laughs, tears, and raw emotion, Almost, Maine set a new standard for Mr. Hoover’s era as director of the drama program.

Didn’t get the chance to experience the show? Within the next physical issue of The Eye will be a review to catch you up on what you missed. But in the meantime, give the playlist a listen or two.

This week’s Playlist of the Week is a collection of songs used throughout the production. Hopefully, it will take you away to a place where life is a little bit different: a place that’s almost.

Also shout out to the entire cast, crew, mentors, and any others involved with the production for putting on such a great show!
