I always grimace at the phrase “coming-of-age.” In my mind, the words are subtly tainted by their overuse. Yet I cannot think of any other words that are more befitting of The Wolves, a play that so painfully and accurately articulates the story of a girls’ indo...

I unironically enjoyed the Cats movie. Now before my professional, academic, and social futures are irreversibly compromised by this possibly disastrous public admission, I shall add a flashing neon caveat. By no means was 2019’s Cats (year specified b...
