Temple students worked with Kristoffer Diaz, a Pulitzer Prize nominee and the university's first playwright-in-residence, to bring Reggie Hoops, an original production, to Randall Theater through Feb. 12. Take a look at the behind-the-scenes photo gallery and learn about the creative minds that fueled this project.
