Alumni from the School of Communication already know the strength of the alumni network in the entertainment industry, but thanks to the NBC sitcom Joey, a spinoff of Friends, the whole country is aware of the so-called "Northwestern Mafia." In an episode written by John Quaintance (C93), Joey, the main character, pretends to be a Northwestern alumnus in order to make connections and get acting jobs.

This spring real Northwestern alumni — and other guests — can attend The Elephant Man on the Ethel M. Barber Theater stage and Chekhov's masterpiece Three Sisters on the Josephine Louis Theater stage.
