Arena Stage’s A Raisin in the Sun Captivates All Around

There is a dangerous magic about theatre-in-the-round—and a heightened sense of communal experience. At Arena Stage’s 2017 production of Lorraine Hansberry’s 1959 play A Raisin in the Sun, the actors are totally exposed on the square of stage that becomes the Younger household, surrounded on all four sides by the audience. And while it can...

Concert Preview: Jazz Cartier, April 29, U Street Music Hall

Jazz Cartier, Toronto’s latest rap export, has an upward trajectory as steep and sudden as any rap success story: after dropping his 2016 mixtape Hotel Paranoia, Cartier received nods from XXL, Forbes, and Pigeons and Planes. He then toured with Post Malone and dropped “Lil Wayne,” an ode to the eponymous rapper which Weezy himself...

Critical Voices: Kendrick Lamar, DAMN.

DAMN., Kendrick Lamar’s latest project, continues his trend of creating exceptional, politically-charged rap that forges a distinct sound. While DAMN. is difficult to characterize stylistically, it is a clear departure from his musically dense, and at times chaotic, 2015 album To Pimp A Butterfly. Lamar has chosen to keep his instrumentals simple throughout DAMN., usually...

Dividing Lines: The Smokescreen of Money

For those who wonder what the Hoya state of mind is come second-semester senior year, one fun fact is that a cheery email from the Office of Advancement’s “Class of 2017 Fund” comes around every two weeks to nag me about making a “gift” to Georgetown. Last week, they declared the start of a “HOYAlympics”:...

Proposed Cuts Damage District Arts

With the announcement of President Donald Trump’s proposed budget, which effectively shuts down the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), federal funding of art and culture is at the greatest risk since the agency’s founding in 1965. The NEA provides vital funds for local artists, theatres, museums, and other cultural institutions, and is especially essential...

GUSA Fails Student Media

Full Disclosure: The Voice is a member of Media Board. We believe that student media serves a valuable purpose to the campus community. From the look of its Fiscal Year 2018 Student Activities Report, it appears that GUSA is unconvinced. The report outlined a 39.5 percent cut in the funding for Media Board, which serves...

Supporting Our Most Vulnerable

Each time I have the opportunity to pass by Healy Hall, I can’t help but think of how fortunate I am to be at an institution like Georgetown. I look at how magnificent the building is and often wonder whether I am living in reality or not. It just seems so surreal. But after the...

Inception : A Movie About Making Movies

In 2010, I went to the movie theater six times to see the same movie. It was the movie that defined my love of film; and it was the first time I started getting into the technical workings that made films great, as well as the thematically rich subtexts that film could offer. I was...

Weekly List: This Might Sound Weird, But…

Here’s a collection of songs whose lyrics sound, well, weird. But a kooky title doesn’t necessarily lead to a strange song (not that that’s a bad thing, though). The lyrics tend to be unusual, the message unique, but the music itself is even more charming due to the unconventional words within it. 1. McFabulous: “I...
