Folger Theater weaves a masterful web with King John

Shakespeare’s King John does not boast the popularity of A Midsummer’s Night Dream or Romeo and Juliet. It’s a play that few beyond circles of Shakespeare buffs have heard of, and fewer still have seen performed live. Folger Theater has set out to change that. Folger’s production of King John’s is running from now through...

Hippo Campus was electric and eccentric at 9:30 Club

Branching Out: D.C.’s Troubled Democracy

Slashers and Sex

If there are three things I love, they’re the smell of coffee, a hot bath after a long day, and watching attractive people be brutally murdered in sequential order.

Stop Telling Me About Einstein

When people find out that my youngest brother has autism and is nonverbal, they often tell me the same anecdote: “Did you know that Albert Einstein didn’t speak until he was four years old?” This story (which has never been proven to be true) used to give me a flicker of hope.

Las Chicas del Cable Are Calling

Thursdays feel different in Spain, as do Saturday mornings, and I couldn’t put my finger on why for a good long while. It finally hit me one Thursday evening as I walked out of my last class of the week exhausted and ready to curl up under my covers and watch the latest episode of...

Getting Curious About Getting Curious

Jonathan Van Ness strides onto the stage in high-heeled boots, his long hair flowing and his ultra-stylish outfit perfectly accentuating his form. He takes a seat and greets the audience, waving frantically and beaming from ear to ear. He says, “Welcome to Getting Curious. I’m Jonathan Van Ness, and every week I sit down for...

Should NFL Teams Consider Running the Triple Option?

Each Sunday at 1, I settle in with my lunch and an illegal Reddit stream to watch my beloved Buffalo Bills in action. Around 2 I snap my laptop shut and lament the incredible fall from grace Western New York’s finest football team has experienced since making the NFL playoffs only last year, while going...
