Album review: King Gizzard is less intense but still impressive on latest LP
It wasn't that long ago that King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard was just an up-and-coming band with a preposterously dumb name. As 2017 has unfurled, they've moved into another category altogether. Now, they're much-loved, much obsessed-over indie-prog heroes on a creative tear...

Theater review: '1984' makes its case for renewed relevance
WAR IS PEACE. FREEDOM IS SLAVERY. IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH. In the first class in Media & Society each semester we consider which dystopian novel successfully predicted the world in which we now live: George Orwell's "1984" or Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World." The academic consensus...

Theater review: ‘Ball’ an evening of laughter, learning
Aristotle, arguably the first theatre critic, wrote about how Greek tragic dramas allowed audiences to achieve “catharsis.” Tragic heroes like Oedipus and Medea would produce feelings of fear and pity in audiences, allowing for an emotional cleansing.
