Born from Quirky Comedy, <i>Brigsby Bear</i> is Warm and Fuzzy

Born from Quirky Comedy, Brigsby Bear is Warm and Fuzzy


Brigsby Bear Adventures — an off-kilter mishmash of Teletubbies and Barney — is such a constant in the life of 25-year-old James (Kyle Mooney) it borders on a religion. Day after day, James plops down in front of his old fashioned TV and absorbs the show’s peculiar aphorisms as the titular animatronic bear solves math…

Rage and Empathy in <i>I, Daniel Blake</i>

Rage and Empathy in I, Daniel Blake


Daniel Blake (Dave Johns), the titular character of Ken Loach’s new film on working class Britons, is the salt of the earth. A 59-year old widower, Dan lives in a blue-collar Newcastle housing complex, trades good-natured barbs with his young neighbor, China (Kema Sikazwe), and supports himself with a career in carpentry. Well, he did…

<i>The Beguiled</i> Exploits the Intersection of Gender and Desire

The Beguiled Exploits the Intersection of Gender and Desire


A braided girl (Oona Laurence) hunts for mushrooms in the dark soil, humming a war song as canons smoke in the distance. Taken separately, the shots of her quiet footsteps and the whirr of cicadas are innocent enough, but within the cocoon of Spanish moss, a sneaking dread percolates. Suddenly, the young woman—who we learn…

Saying Goodbye to a Room of Our Own

Saying Goodbye to a Room of Our Own


I wasn’t too sure about her in the beginning. We met through CHARMS, its shadowy algorithm connecting us amidst a sea of freshmen girls who counted Parks and Recreation among their favorite TV shows. After some tentative, anonymous chatting, we graduated to Facebook, our social media lives ripe for stalking. When I showed my parents…

<i>Fun Home</i> Remembers the Joy and Pain of Looking Back

Fun Home Remembers the Joy and Pain of Looking Back


I had my qualms about Fun Home. The national touring production of the five-time Tony winning musical was coming to D.C.’s National Theatre and my expectations were stratospheric despite my best attempts to temper them, which means disappointment was almost inevitable. Even with the Tony’s stamp of approval—its 2015 haul includes Best Musical, Best Score,…

Arena Stage’s <i>A Raisin in the Sun</i> Captivates All Around

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…

The Night I Saw Cate Blanchett on Broadway

The Night I Saw Cate Blanchett on Broadway


Because I’m a bougie millennial, I spent part of my Spring break in New York with my roommate and beloved companion, Grace. We shared a bialy from Russ and Daughters; we braved the frigid wind gusts at Liberty Island; we listened to music with a headphone splitter like Keira Knightly and Mark Ruffalo do in…
