The professional theater has partnered with the university's drama department for 40 years, allowing students to work alongside their professors, faculty and other professionals.

A gaggle of eager prospective students show up to Syracuse Stage, hoping to gain entry to the Syracuse University Department of Drama.

Syracuse Stage's production of Paula Vogel's play deals with the problems of pedophilia, manipulation, incest and misogyny.

On a two-way road that stretches from center stage into infinity, two actors saunter in and settle into chairs facing the audience.

YouTube and HBO star Issa Rae discussed her rise on the Internet, her future ventures, and much more in an interview led by E! News correspondent Zuri Hall.

Had it not been for Issa Rae’s prodigious talent for catfishing at the ripe age of 11, it’s possible that HBO’s new hit series Insecure would not exist. According to the 32-year-old star of the show, her internet fascination began through an innocent trolling of sorts.

Review: The pleasant rendition of Disney’s 1991 award-winning animated feature provided the audience with enthusiastic and humorous, yet heartfelt performances.

At first glance, it was hard to imagine how an extravagant and familiar Disney story would unfold in the intimate space of the Redhouse Arts Center.

Review: The indie-dance band returned to snowy Syracuse on Friday night to play The Westcott Theater.

Rubblebucket was met by an adoring mass of true Upstate New Yorkers, who don’t let slushy roads stop them from belting out a song about love and human birth. The members were apparently equally-adoring, telling the crowd, “You guys are so cool.”
