“Bulrusher,” written by Eisa Davis, is a play that explores intersectionality with humor, live music, and lyrical prose. This coming-of-age drama about a multiracial girl who grows up in a predominantly white town, which was a finalist for the 2007 Pulitzer Prize in Drama, is finding a home …
Although Ambar Lucid was merely the opening act for another artist the evening of Aug. 10 at the Neptune Theater, her performance was so stunning it wouldn’t have been surprising if the majority of fans were mainly there to see her.
Editor’s Note: Pop culture has the power to elicit the most visceral and violent reactions. It doesn’t matter if a new movie trailer comes out or another video game is announced, everyone’s Twitter feed will be filled fanatical love and obsession, or rage and burning hatred. Kyle Bender is g…
We are all familiar with the pink-shirted, backpack-wearing, short-haired explorer Dora. For almost two decades, “Dora the Explorer” has graced our television screens along with her monkey friend Boots and her trustworthy backpack and map. Now, keeping with current trends, I guess it was tim…
A paid service to livestream your daily prayers. A karaoke booth with songs about being ignored with zero plays on SoundCloud. A CAPTCHA asking you to “select all images that make you afraid.” As technology advances and becomes even more integral to our daily lives, what will it mean in rela…
In December 1940, Jack Kirby and Joe Simon developed the character of Captain America as a symbol to evoke support in the United States’ decision to intervene in World War II. The ultra-patriotic character embodied a nationalistic flavor of an American justice fighter against violence in the…
Are you sick and tired of harnessing the entirety of your IQ in a desperate attempt to unravel big-brain cinema? Well, fear not, fair reader, because I have just the film for you.
“Life changes fast. Life changes in an instant,” Joan Didion writes in the opening of her memoir. This play adaptation begins with our protagonist assuring us that what has happened to her will happen to us too, giving us a reason to invest in her story from the very first lines of this show.
Disney animated movies hold a special place in my heart. “Mulan”? Banger. “Coco”? Amazing animation. “Moana”? More Lin-Manuel Miranda, please.
It’s easy to throw around the term ‘anticipated’ in regards to a new film. Yet, with renowned filmmaker Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” a movie he has claimed will be his second to last, it’s surely apt to say that it is one of the most anticipated feature films of 2019.
In a time when even the president of the United States is often embroiled in racist controversies, the short stories and anecdotes detailed in Claudia Rankine’s “Citizen: An American Lyric,” seem more appropriate than ever. Last weekend was the timely Seattle premiere of the theatrical adapt…
It’s hard to believe it’s been almost 22 years since Disney’s classic “Air Bud” was released. Thousands of us grew up rooting for Josh and his faithful comrade, Buddy the golden retriever, as they paired up to make one of the best basketball teams in Washington State fictional history.
It’s hard to discuss the success of the recent wave of hip-hop artists to come from Seattle without mentioning the part that three UW students played nearly two decades ago.
Though she’s been releasing music since 2013, Lizzo has been experiencing a recent surge in popularity, performing at the 2019 BET Awards while also being nominated for best female hip-hop artist.
The first thing visitors usually do upon entering the Beverly Semmes exhibit at the Henry Art Gallery is crane their necks up in awe — an action compelled by both the sheer size of the works and the height at which they are mounted.
Much like an electric unicycle, "Stuber" is stupid, disgustingly millennial, and hilarious to see. Unlike an electric unicycle, it’s worth paying for.
I strongly feel that San Francisco-based alt-folk group Thao & The Get Down Stay Down doesn’t get the attention it deserves. Apart from having a consistent output of catchy and distinctive music, they were ahead of their time when they released a #MeToo anthem the year before the movemen…
After the emotional gut punches that came with “Avengers: Endgame” just over two months ago, which served as a natural conclusion for the first 22 films of the MCU franchise, it could be considered an exhausting proposition to come back into this universe. With a franchise that prides itself…
A staple of modern Mexican rock, Café Tacuba’s “¿Qué Pasará?” from their 2003 album “Cuatro Caminos,” thunders through its two minutes with a grunge-infused sizzle reminiscent of their 90s upbringing.
For UW professor of English Shawn Wong, Penguin Book’s decision to re-publish Asian-American classic “No-No Boy,” against what seems to be an outstanding copyright, is an outrage on a legal and symbolic level.
Disclosure: Arts & Leisure Editor Shahbaz Ahmed Khan has a personal and professional relationship with Sameer Arshad, with whom he has collaborated on multiple theatrical productions.
While sleep is certainly a touchy subject for college students of all majors, the statement: “Sleep is for the weak,” rings especially true for graduating seniors of the UW design program. The capstone project entails 10 weeks of intensive labor into the creation and development of a thought…
RnB electronic duo Avestra played at The Daily's newsroom May 23.
The very worst thing about the summertime is its inevitably crashing end. Every year, we try and outrun the longer shadow of shorter days, and every year it comes down all around our heads. Nothing livens that looming end like Queen’s “Hammer to Fall.”
For a relatively small venue, Washington Hall was crowded on the night of June 16 as fans gathered to listen to Kishi Bashi (stage name for Kaoru Ishibashi) perform on tour for his new album “Omoiyari.”
The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (PRB) is spending the summer in Seattle — along with a slew of painting, drawing, and decorative arts from 19th century Britain in the Seattle Art Museum’s (SAM) “Victorian Radicals: From The Pre-Raphaelites to The Arts and Crafts Movement.”
