Operation: Ease on Down the Road

Last night, Bwog’s theatre aficionado Megan McGregor clicked her heels together three times and soon found herself in the Lerner Black Box theatre watching Operation: Ease on Down the Road. Friday night at 8 and 11 pm, Lerner Black Box experienced something unlike it has ever experienced—racist jokes, cultural references, and Barnard women galore. Wait, […]

NOMADS Presents: Portrait and a Dream

Last night, NOMADS held their customary first-show gala for their newest student piece: Portrait and a Dream. Bwog’s Katheryn Thayer now reports. We know finals are coming up, but what better way to de-stress than to watch someone else worry about the end of the world, death, and losing everything important? Student writer Jacob Rice, […]

CU Players Bid Their Mother Good Night

Last night, Bwog’s Theater-Goer Extraordinaire Gabby Beans sat in on the opening night of  CUP’s “‘night, Mother.” The Glicker-Milstein Theater in the Diana Center could not have housed a more beautiful and devastating production this season. The CU Players’ production of Marsha Norman’s “‘night, Mother” is a challenging piece in every conceivable sense. The story unfolds slowly. The audience […]

KCST Review: Othello

Othello is not by any means an easy play to perform. The lines are long, the characters change dramatically over the course of the play, and the bloodiness is abundant. King’s Crown Shakespeare Troupe’s attempt at it was therefore definitely something to rave about, especially considering the tightness of the group’s budget.  The audience laughed, […]

A Fountain of Words: CUP’s Dirty Hands

Every play ever produced has been showing this weekend and last.  Bwog’s Anish Bramhandkar checks out the latest offering from the CU Players, Dirty Hands. There’s no way around it.  Dirty Hands, Jean-Paul Sartre’s post-war political drama, is very long.  At the end of the two-and-a-half hour play, you’ve enjoyed yourself but find yourself wishing […]

Phoenician Women: Columbia Stages Review

To see if he could still feel (and to check out the neighborhood north of 120th Street), Emotional Correspondent Dan Flicker took a walk last night to see Columbia Stages’ production of Phoenician Women.  Here is his story. The Phoenician Women prance into their namesake play as a colorful, if occasionally irritating bunch. Giggling and […]

Elektra: CU Players Review

Feeling emotionally burdened, Bwog’s Catharsis Bureau Chief, Claire Sabel, sought release last night in CU Players’ production of Sophokles’ Elektra.  And according to her review, the trip was more than worthwhile. It is one thing to read the great works of Greek drama in Lit Hum, and quite another to bring them to life on stage – […]

Julius Caesar: A Meteoric Rise and Fall

NOTE: Since publishing, it has come to Bwog’s attention that this review only covered the first half of the play. Bwog sincerely regrets the error. Bwog’s Shakespeare Under the Stars Expert Julia Mix Barrington turned out last night for King’s Crown Theatre Troupe’s production of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar and returns this report.  Caesar‘s final performance […]

Pinball Wizard: CMTS Presents “Tommy”

If you’re looking for a traditional, all-American musical, Tommy is not for you.  That doesn’t mean it’s not worth seeing- it’s a musical of a different formula, resembling Mamma Mia more than Aida. Tommy is a musical by Pete Townshend (yes, that Pete Townshend) based on a concept album by The Who in 1969 of […]

KCST: Adbusted

Reports of KCST’s (apparently successful!) advertising methodology have been numerous. According to a Bwog tipster embedded in Butler, around 11 PM “some guy just walked into a reading room on the third floor to stump about KCST’s one acts in a booming voice. He carried on for about a minute, students looked confused, rolled their […]
