Last April the School of Communication assembled a star-studded cast for A Starry Night. The evening performance brought together some of Northwestern’s most famous entertainment alumni, including Ana Gasteyer ’89, Heather Headley ’97, Brian d’Arcy James ’90, Richard Kind ’78, Harry Lennix ’86, Tony Roberts ’61 and, of course, Stephen Colbert ’86, ’11 H, who hosted the night of merriment. The show was part of CommFest, a weekend of reunions, master classes, workshops, exhibits and demonstrations. The festival weekend helped support new graduate programs, including a master of fine arts program in acting, and a downtown Chicago performing and media arts center. Relive the experience at commfest.northwestern.edu.
