Legendary Actress to Present Program for Public, Campus
Meryl Streep, considered by many to be the greatest actress of this generation, will speak at UMass Lowell in the latest installment of the Chancellor’s Speaker Series.
Streep, an Academy Award winner whose acting career has spanned five decades and more than 100 roles, will take the stage at the Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell on Wednesday, Feb. 5, 2014. Details on the program and tickets, which will be available to the public as well as the University community, will be announced at a later date. Check www.uml.edu/streep
The UMass Lowell Chancellor’s Speaker Series was launched last December with “A Conversation With Stephen King,” which drew a capacity crowd of more than 3,000. As with the King event, Streep’s program will benefit student scholarships. It is co-sponsored by the UMass Lowell English Department’s Theatre Arts Program and the College of Fine Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.
“We are grateful to have someone of Meryl Streep’s stature as the next participant in the UMass Lowell Chancellor’s Speaker Series, which brings people at the top of their fields to the University to speak to students and the community while helping to raise funds for scholarships,” says Chancellor Marty Meehan.
