This week, we’ve stuffed our main book with our hefty annual Fall Arts Guide—-which has everything, seriously everything, you need for your fall entertainment binge. Photography! Modern dance! EDM! Hip-hop! Film! Rep film! Plays! Musicals! Jazz! Gertrude Stein! Classical music! Comedy! Book readings! Art! Beards! (This one’s not online yet. But wait for it.)
And listings! So many listings. Easily sortable listings! Frighteningly comprehensive listings! Look upon them and weep. Joyfully, of course.
There’s much, much more. Like Tom Anderson‘s deep dive into what the brand-new Fillmore Silver Spring means for the D.C. concert landscape (the answer will surprise you). And Benjamin R. Freed‘s thoughtful examination of how the D.C. Film Office might realize its ambition of attracting a movie theater east of the Anacostia River.
And then there’s our regularly scheduled arts section, which has a frightening amount of theater reviews—-like Trey Graham on the varying degrees of silliness you’ll see in Shakespeare Theatre Company’s The Heir Apparent and Studio Theatre’s The Habit of Art, Rebecca J. Ritzel on the surprising pair of new musicals that are opening Signature Theatre’s season, and Chris Klimek on No Rules Theatre Company’s Stop Kiss, which also happens to be the directorial debut of beloved actress Holly Twyford. Tricia Olszewski reviews Higher Ground, the first film directed by actress Vera Farmiga. And in One Track Mind, Joe Warminsky talks with pro skater-cum-rapper Darren Harper about his new mixtape.
