The Lebanese American University honored Nidal Ashkar Tuesday as part of Next Festival 2019, an eclectic week of arts and communications events including workshops and music, dance and drag performances. The festival's official opening paid tribute to "the Grand Dame of Theater in Lebanon," the illustrious actor, director and founder of Masrah al-Madina, with a short film about Ashkar giving a vocal workshop to LAU students, followed by an original play depicting twelve moments in Ashkar's life.The medley was performed by LAU students, alumni and professional actors, and featured a four piece providing live backing music.The student ranked a performance by Zuhal, a Lebanese drag queen who recently featured in Vogue magazine, as being one of her favorite events -- even though it was the first time that she had watched a drag performance.
