Waiting for good

I would never advise somebody to skip the performance of a great dramatic text. However, I would recommend actually reading the text before attending a play as elliptical as “Waiting for Godot.” Some elements of the Washington Shakespeare Company’s new production of Samuel Beckett’s tragedy are downright laughable, but many great questions are cleared up […]

Love, pain and a little cocaine

With surprising fleetness and depth, a budding student-run theater company has moored itself into the histrionic GW community. Having already produced works by such estimable talents as George C. Wolfe (“Colored Museum”) and Tony Kushner (“Angels in America”), Majority Theatre Productions emphasizes the voices of minorities. Now running through April 30, the acting troupe has […]

Colored by numbers, the patterns of love

If, as the songs say, the scent of love is in the air, then the England studio at the Washington Ballet has been converted into a veritable perfumery. The fragrance of ardor comes in a variety of bouquets, among them the tang of infatuation, the musk of lust and the lingering trace of intoxicating, Dionysian […]

Departing Seniors: Seriously out of here

Some people say they would rather create the news than report on it. Others are happy to observe events around them and write. I like to think that both are equally important; if we didn’t have the “newsmakers” there would be nothing to report on, but if there were no media organizations, people wouldn’t be […]

Young Rodrigo Noya shines in the engaging ‘Valentin’

Alejandro Agresti, director and screenwriter of ‘Valentin’ (Miramax), has chosen some big shoes for his very small title character to fill. Seen through the eight-year-old, slightly-crossed eyes of Valentin (Rodrigo Noya), a precocious boy growing up in 1960s Argentina, Agresti’s film is a touching tribute to innocence and honesty that emulates the highly acclaimed foreign […]

Departing Seniors: Thirty inches of Snow

A few things need to be cleared up before I say goodbye. My time at GW should be over in less than three weeks, but it is not. I am not graduating, but I will in eight semesters because I took a semester off, so it is technically on time, just Snow time. So this […]
