Bwogger Aliya Schneider joined her in laughter the whole time while taking photo documentation of the character’s schticks.   Having never experienced an […]

Bwog Reviews: Barnard Theatre Department’s “The Seagull”

This past weekend, the Barnard Theatre Department put on a production of Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull in Minor Latham Playhouse. Bwog’s in-house theater critic discusses the success of subtlety in the show.  Theater shouldn’t come in screaming its intention, tearing off its clothes to reveal itself.
