AUSTIN, Texas — Assault & Flattery students at The University of Texas School of Law will present “Issuespotting,” an entirely student-run musical, from Friday, March 4, through Sunday, March 6 at the Scottish Rite Theatre at the intersection of 18th Street and Lavaca. The show starts at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday evening; matinees are at 2 p.m. on Saturday and 3 p.m. on Sunday.

Tickets cost $ 10 and will be on sale in the Susman Godfrey Atrium at UT Law from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 21 through Thursday, Feb. 24. After that date, any remaining tickets can be reserved by emailing Laurel Boatright at assault@law.utexas.edu.

This year's show is entitled "Issuespotting" for no reason other than being able to make witty t-shirts and posters inspired by the movie Trainspotting. As for the show’s plot, think The Three Amigos meets Law & Order (with a little Les Miserables tossed in the mix).

Assault & Flattery (A&F) is one of the largest student organizations at the Law School and its productions have been a UT tradition for close to 50 years. Each spring, A&F presents the school's annual musical comedy revue. Usually based on a popular film or Broadway musical, the show embraces and satirizes all aspects of the legal professions--students, faculty members, and the law itself. The production is written, directed, designed, and choreographed by law students and features live performances by student and faculty actors, singers, dancers, and musicians.
