  • "[title of show]" Shines With Glittering Talent and Originality at Dominion Stage

    • "The core triumph of [title of show]? Showing me how many creative writing deadlines I have needlessly stressed out about because I didn’t think to do my creative writing assignment about needlessly stressing out about the creative writing assignment. Can I write this review about what it was like to write this review? My editor said no. Worth a shot."

  • The gala night Jon Stewart Got the Mark Twain Prize at the Kennedy Center

    • "Especially as a young person hoping to work in political satire, the larger-than-life experience of attending the Mark Twain Prize ceremony was a formative one that I will not soon forget. While the tickets for this gala are not inexpensive for casual comedy lovers, those who are able to acquire them should absolutely seek to attend coming years’ Mark Twain Prize galas, if simply for the chance to experience briefly being inside the world of those figures we know and love from stage and screen." (Represented DCTA at the annual Mark Twain Prize red carpet gala at the Kennedy Center)

  • T.S. Eliot Told You So

    • "​A year after writing "Cats Can have a (Reluctantly) Positive Review" for The Georgetown Independent, I had the opportunity to read T. S. Eliot’s essay “Tradition and the Individual Talent.” In this essay, Eliot asserts what makes ‘good’ art, describes what the duty of ‘the artist’ is in creating new work, and declares the vital importance of respecting ‘tradition.’ This essay made me realize that Cats the movie failed because it broke its co-creator’s own rules."
