It is the worst of times, and the most liminal of times. Reading week snuck up on us with a slap and here we are during finals: broken, disheartened, and yearning for summer (why is it still
Directed by Bernadette Bridges (CC ’19) and written by Jake Arlow (BC ’19) and Jacob Kaplan (CC ’20), the long-awaited 125th Annual Varsity Show opened this Friday night in Roone Auditorium. Reporting on it is Riva 420, Contributing Editor for b-b-b-b-Bwog.

Bwog Daily Editor Peyton Ayers and Staff Writer Elle Ferguson give you the juicy details on Orchesis’ show in case you missed it or want to relive its glory.
Last night, Bwog staffers Levi Cohen (opera fan/groupie) and Betsy Ladyzhets (tree expert, opera newbie) went to the Glicker-Milstein Theatre for the opening night of NOW’s production of Mozart’s “Die Zauberflöte.” It was a rollicking evening of bird people, angry moms, and sun worship.
Bwog staffers Riva Weinstein and Levi Cohen, who are frequently mistaken for Classicists, headed to the Lenfest Center yesterday for the MFA Directing Thesis Hadrian & Antinous, an original work directed by MFA student Mark Barford and produced by Sami Pyne. The show’s disappointing script was redeemed by excellent directing and design choices.
Internal Editor Zoe Sottile and Events Editor Isabel Sepúlveda popped and locked their way over to the Varsity Show’s annual West End Preview. After 30 minutes of songs and the occasional laugh, they were left sufficiently bamboozled but…cautiously optimistic about this year’s show.
Senior Staff Writer and opera junkie Levi Cohen went to the Glicker-Milstein Theater last night for the Columbia University New Opera Workshop’s Fall 2018 Repertory Scenes. The Music Director and conductor was Katie Cooke CC’19, and it was produced by Julian Vleeschhouwer CC’19. Tickets are currently sold out for both tonight’s and tomorrow’s performances (they were available here), […]
Arts Editor Riva Weinstein has worked on NOMADS shows twice before, but she was still more than pleasantly surprised when she went to see Thursday’s production of “Type B”, an original play written by Andy Jo and directed by Natasja Naarendorp. The play opens with a scene from your last Friday night get-together: six friends lounge […]
Not quite the same trek as Siberia to Moscow, but guest writer Riva Weinstein still hiked to the 12th floor of IAB. She attended the opening of the exhibit Eduard Gorokhovsky: From Siberia to Moscow, Selected Works on Paper and shares her experience below. Tucked away on the 12th floor of the International Affairs Building, the reception […]
We sent staff writer Mary Walsh to cover a conversation between artists Toyin Ojih Odutola, Barnard’s Lida A. Orzeck ’68 Artist-in-Residence, and Mary Sibande, Johannesburg and Venice Biennale artist. Moderated by Kellie Jones, a Columbia Professor of Art History and MacArthur Fellow, these accomplished women discussed the political role artists play in society. Toyin Ojih Odutola […]
Last night, historian John McMillian spoke in the first in a series of events, co-sponsored by the Grolier Club and the Lehman Center for American History, that will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Columbia protests in April 1968. His talk, “The Sixties Underground Press and the Rise of Alternative Media in America” was just […]
From wonderfully wacky Christmas jumpers to the second coming of Christ, Bwogger Roberta Rhyse (who now wishes to be referred to as ‘Special Snowflake 2.0’) was pleasantly surprised and equally confused by XMAS 12’s Tis the Treason. Bwogger Aliya Schneider joined her in laughter the whole time while taking photo documentation of the character’s schticks. Having never experienced an […]
Bwogger Aliya Schneider pulled double duty this weekend and also reviewed and photographed Latenite’s Fall Anthology. It’s basically seven plays in one, so get your septuple dose of theatre below! I was originally planning on going to the Latenite Fall 2017 Anthology 11 pm show, but it was highly recommended that I go to the 8 pm […]
