With the end of, hopefully, our last online semester comes another edition of Bwog Staff’s favorite running series. Read up on the music that defined our semester while getting vaccinated and practicing social distancing!
This past year has been nothing short of a disaster for many people, but working, learning, and socializing through our computer screens has produced a few silver linings that we’d want to stick around.
A noose was found at the Union Theological Seminary on Wednesday afternoon in an incident currently being investigated by the NYPD as a hate crime.
Bwog can somehow explain the past 22 days of housing, but the mystery behind the resurrecting 6-person Plimpton suite will remain unsolved.
AJ McDougall’s one-act play, “Imperson All,” directed by Abigail Smith (BC ‘21), ended its three-night run yesterday in the Glicker-Milstein Theatre at Barnard. It was incredibly highbrow and endlessly interpretable.
Managing Editor Betsy Ladyzhets loves Beat poetry and strong female characters. Naturally, she has a lot to say about NOMADS’ “The Other Side,” a new original musical by Eden Gordon (BC ’19), after attending the show’s first performance last night. Two weeks ago, my American literature class read “Howl and Other Poems” by Allen Ginsberg. […]

On Campus: This Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, check out NOMADS’ production […]

On Saturday night, the student theater group NOMADS, which produces new original works written and directed by students, presented Ooh Kill ‘Em, a musical parody of Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill. The show was directed by Isaac Jiffar (CC’18) and produced by Maddy Cohen (BC’19), with book, music, and lyrics written by Nick Hermesman (CC’19). Bwogger Elana Rebitzer went to review […]
When we found out NOMADS was putting on a (sold out) musical about Hillary Clinton with a score completely comprised of Taylor Swift tunes, we were intrigued to say the least. We sent Bwoggers Mia Lindheimer and Jennifer Nugent to see how it came together. Hillary(ous)! has two more shows tonight (7pm and 9:30pm) so, […]
Senior wisdoms continue today with Carly, aka that girl you maybe know from Jewish summer camp. Name, School, Major, Hometown: Carly, Barnard, English (Creative Writing & Theater Concentrations), Los Angeles Claim to fame: I’m that girl who sort of looks like your friend from Jewish summer camp/I probably spilled coffee or tripped in front of […]
The best time to wear a striped sweater is all the time, and the best time to go to a cultural event is also all the time. Arts Editor Kyra Bloom’s got you covered in that department as you uncover yourself in the warm weather. Submit your event to email@example.com. On Campus: CMTS presents The Light in […]
The fall production of theater group NOMADS (New and Original Material Authored and Directed by Students), American Ghosts, premiered last night in the Glicker-Milstein blackbox theatre, located on LL2 of the Diana Center; the show runs through Saturday, with performances beginning at 8 pm and running a little over an hour. Bwog’s Meandering Medium Marcus Levine […]
SPEARS: The Gospel According to Britney, Pat Blute’s musical which professed to pair The Greatest Story Ever Told with The Greatest Music Ever Written, ran for the last time at 8 pm last night, in Barnard’s Glicker-Milstein Theatre. Conor Skelding went. On the jaded Columbia campus, SPEARS’s premise – using the music of Britney Spears to […]
The Columbia theatre community sure has a knack for originality. It is to be admired that at least half of the shows one hears about are student written. Adding to the Columbia canon, Cassandra Adair takes audiences on a multi-faceted journey of loneliness and humor in the premiere of her play, “The Lonely Play (A Not-So-Lonely Play). […]

If you’re a dance aficionado, this is the weekend to stay on campus and watch your peers roll around on stage and stuff. If you’d like your loosely dance-related event featured here, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thursday […]
New York City has endless opportunities to enjoy some truly magnificent (and other not so magnificent) works of theatre, dance, art, and music. But they’re all so expensive?! We know. Stay home this weekend and appreciate what free and not-so-free cultural experiences Morningside Heights has to offer. If you’d like your local (or not so local!) Columbia […]
Last night, NOMADS presented Sylvia Khoury’s (CC ’12) original play—Park Beautification. Bwog’s resident philosopher of fine arts Alex Jones now reports. The play was performed in a basement room of St. Paul’s Chapel that looked like it was designed to display art, not host theater. For as unexpectedly cold a night as it was, that […]
