Natural light peaks through the curtains, exposing stone and brick against light pastels and watercolors to create an elegant, cozy aesthetic. Self-portraits and floral images panel the walls at the Arts + Literature Laboratory.
Sagashus T. Levingston’s story is anything but ordinary. She is a mother of six, an award-winning author and a public speaker. She has a Ph.D. from the Department of English at UW-Madison. She has lived through poverty, trials and triumphs. She is an artist, and her pursuit of advocacy and scholarship culminates in her 2017 book “Infamous Mothers.”
“Broad City,” the beautiful brainchild of comedians Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, will come to a close after the current fifth season. The show centers around the female duo who play exaggerated versions of themselves as they struggle to pay New York City rent, make the most of their 20s and maybe smoke too much weed.
The Overture Center off State Street has long been considered a high-quality establishment to see a high-quality show. Some of the biggest acts in the performing arts have made their way through Madison and made a stop at the Overture. Many Madison residents have attended as guests or have had the privilege to work there.

As a studio, Respawn Entertainment has grown a reputation for creating pleasant surprises. Their “Titanfall” series is considered by many critics — including myself — to be one of the best shooter series ever made. “Titanfall 2” in particular came out of nowhere back in 2016 with a single-player campaign that was uncommonly innovative and emotional.
As I rushed to the Rainbow Kitten Surprise concert at the Sylvee this past Monday night, I had high expectations after their gig at Majestic Theatre last year, which was full of head-bang worthy rock-inspired renditions of their classics and an intimate feel despite Sam Melo’s overwhelmingly energetic stage presence.
Ariana Grande ended 2018 as the most relevant pop star and for good reason. Grande released her fifth studio album, thank u, next, just over five months after the well-received Sweetener. She experienced astounding commercial success, all while crafting her unique brand and reviving pop through heavy EDM, R&B and hip-hop influence.
Broadway’s tenth anniversary tour of Rock of Ages travelled to the Overture Center on Feb. 7 to bestow its hilarious and harmonious blend of rock and musical theatre upon the people of Madison. While, yes, the crescendos were deafening and the performances astounding, the show was definitely closer to a 1980s rock concert than a 2018 Broadway musical, so there is a certain mindset needed in order to fully enjoy this production.
Although Melissa McCarthy is best known for her unfiltered, aggressive and outright hilarious performances (“Bridesmaids”, “The Heat”), it’s clearly evident that this comedic genius is quite capable of tackling dramatic, darkly comedic roles as well. Such is the case in “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” from director Marielle Heller, a rather different kind of film that can best be described as pleasantly enjoyable.
Is it possible to stare too hard at something?
Though some may find the show’s premise and gimmick a bit stale by this point, “The Good Place” has remained one of the biggest sitcoms currently on air. Having just completed its third season, the show proves that it is still a comedy worth watching, and season three may be the funniest yet.
In light of #MeToo and all that happened over the course of 2018, it is refreshing to see the Recording Academy acknowledge and highlight the work of deserving women artists more than it has in past years. With that being said, the Grammys still tend to favor mainstream and “safe” choices, as they again proved last year. The Grammys have a longstanding history of snubbing deserving acts and ignoring some of music’s most talented in favor of music’s most well-known.

“Resident Evil 2” made a lot of waves back in 1998, but looking back at it now, it’s hard to believe anyone was scared by it. Don’t get me wrong, it still has its charm, and if testimonials are anything to go off of, there were plenty of kids and young adults who were outright traumatized by it in its heyday. But even by the standards of its contemporaries, there’s a lot of shortcomings in the original “Resident Evil 2.”
In this installment of the Grammys series, we’re looking at two more of the eight nominees for the coveted Album of the Year award. In particular, these two are the longest albums of the bunch, with Scorpion by Drake and H.E.R.’s self-titled debut album clocking in just under 90 and 72 minutes, respectively. While both albums have triumphs, their longer run times do more harm than good.
On Thursday, Jan. 31, Madison was on the back end of the worst week of cold weather that many of us have ever seen. Residents were told to stay inside, turn up the heat and not leave unless it was necessary. Surely, no one would be in the mood to celebrate just yet with temperatures well below zero and snow falling steadily, right? Well, Madison’s music and concert scene didn’t seem phased one bit.
For most Midwesterners, the Great Lakes frequently serve as a backdrop for outdoor adventure-- frigid, clear and impossibly vast, this freshwater system is a central source for recreation, commerce and much more. Individuals and businesses across the continent depend on these lakes, and in the past century, this dependency has been reflected in a changing ecology that is taking place on a level that many Americans remain unaware of.
