The Monday Catchup
Ahh! As I opened Old K’s center door en route to Peirce nourishment, I was greeted by Kenyon’s first snow. It made think about some of my other “firsts”: first heartbreak, first pet, first mac and cheese wedge from the Cove (rip). I’m sure you’re wondering why ‘first kiss’ wasn’t on my list. Well, I’d rather not think about that one. I’ll leave your identity concealed for now Mr. slobber, but if you’re reading this you know who you are. Anyway this weekend was probably filled with kids drunkenly macking in dark corners and me heavily judging them. Totally hypothetical. Here’s what you had to say.
“I have one word about this weekend: lesbians”
“Weekend number two: the humans still think I’m a baked potato”
“I didn’t pass out because I was drunk. I passed out because a boy said my butt looked cute”
This must have been a rare weekend because you had quite a lot to say. Good for you. Maybe you should try and study this week, but why would you do that? Go to these things instead.
What: The Upright Citizens Brigade
- Gird your loins because this is a 90-minute, pee-your-pants, laugh-your-ass-off, ball-up-into-the-fetal-position, laugh-until-you-cry, vom-up-your-lunch performance
- I hear The Fools are opening for them ;)
When: Friday February 3rd at 8:00pm
What: “Uncle Vanya” by Anton Chekhov, adapted by Annie Baker
- Empathy meets apathy in Anton Chekhov’s extraordinary dramatic meditation on unrequited love, dreams deferred and environmental decay. Infused with the playwright’s renowned wit, this story of a family’s pursuit of illusory fulfillment suggests that the strongest cages are the ones we build for ourselves.
- As with most every Kenyon production, I’m sure I’ll cry and feel sad during and after.
When: Thursday, February 2, Friday, February 3, and Saturday, February 4 at 8:00pm to 10:30pm
