Rowers from across the nation will meet on the banks of the Potomac River Saturday for the 17th annual GW Invitational Crew Classic. Teams from the University of Tennessee, Columbia University, the U.S. Naval Academy, St. Joseph’s and Georgetown are set to compete with GW in the event, which coincides with the closing of the […]

Out Front

After releasing its luminous new album, Transatlanticism, last fall, the Seattle-based band Death Cab for Cutie is bringing a blend of lush vocals and delicate instrumentation to the masses. Just a few hours before Death Cab’s set at the 9:30 Club last Saturday, I was ushered through a tour bus strewn with jean jackets and […]

Have we created a monster or has the monster created us?

About a month ago on the Metro, I recall reading an article in The Washington Post regarding the scientific advance of facial transplant surgery. It literally referred to slicing the face off one person and slapping it on the sanded down face of a patient far beyond the benefits of Botox. While reading it, situations […]

These films would give rise to some of the most notorious characters the industry […]

The truth hurts. So does this play.

Cherry Red Productions has made something of a name for itself over the past nine years by being avant-garde and over-the-top. How appropriate, then, that the company’s new play, “Cinema Verite,” by Wendy MacLeod (“The House of Yes”), mocks the pop-art sensibilities of Andy Warhol and the culture that sprung up around him in the […]

Looking good, your majesty

After seeing “The Prince and Me,” I had an opportunity to join a conference call for college journalists with Julia Stiles herself, a fellow undergrad in her senior year at Columbia University. I was posed with a dilemma: how does one ask questions of an actress while harboring a disgust and apathy for said actress’ […]
