    On the Radar… (Beginning of the Year Edition)

    Happy New Year, everyone! And Happy Marjorie Taylor-Greene Got Permanently Suspended from Twitter Day! Which was technically a few days ago, but I still feel like celebrating that.

    Ho, ho, ho! Meeerrrrry Christmas! Or Happy Holidays, a phrase that was not invented by woke liberals in the last few years but something that people have been saying to each other since 1863. Now we’re really getting into the final push for the last-minute Oscar contenders. I personally can’t stand how many of these […] More

    Interview: Jayne Houdyshell on Her Long Journey with ‘The Humans’

    The Humans is a one-act play that has been around for a while. Its first-ever performance in front of an audience was at the American Theater Company in Chicago, Illinois in 2014. It slowly made its way wowing theatregoers around the country before finally making its Broadway debut in 2016, soon after that becoming a […] More
