The Secret Lives of HBS Show Stars:

You know who they are. They might as well have a scarlet “Show” pinned to their chests. The drooping eyes, the glazed stares… and yes, the dance pants. These are the members of the HBS show. They’ve spent the last six months writing, choreographing, and rehearsing the 2004 production, “Terms of Endowment”. The Harbus recently caught up with the Show’s two co-leads, Rebecca Greenawalt (NG) and Drew Meade (NJ), who shared a few insitghts into life behind-the-scenes of the HBS Show.
