Currently in its fourth season, the show features sketches about Jewish history from biblical times to the present. Think “Horrible Histories,” but with an older target audience and darker, Jewish humor.
Unlike people who lived during the Plague, the purpose of singing is no longer limited to religious reasons. Music became a common language where people shared emotions with each other.

Jackson, the 45-year-old transgender advocate and actress, was invited by the Brandeis Film, Television and Interactive Media Program for a conversation on Sept. 10. She played Elektra in the “Pose,” a 2018 television show that featured gender-nonconforming ballroom culture in the Black and Latinx community in New York in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
This event was a fun way to let students express creativity while also trying to include things that students were passionate about in their art.

Nolan can do better than "Tenet.” He has, and he will. In the immediate aftermath of seeing the film, however, one cannot help but feel that maybe Nolan has overstayed his welcome.
Brave New World is a heavy book, an epitomic novel and a prophecy. We, however, should not mourn over it. But rather use it to warn us — to build up a more transparent government and to push forward social equality.
The movie was fun to watch but not groundbreaking by any means. However, when I told my mom I would be reviewing “Outbreak” for the Justice, she said she saw it in theaters and freaked out during the scene when a man coughed and spread the virus over an entire movie theater, so I cannot call “Outbreak” forgettable. Take that as you will. Wash your hands and be safe.
On Saturday, March 7, students packed Levin Ballroom, ready for the Brandeis Asian American Students Association’s show – BAASA Presents: APAHM Opening 2020: Reclaiming Voices. Everyone waited with anticipation and excitement to witness the incredible talent and important messages this event offered.
“The Tempest” is running for another weekend, and I highly encourage you to go out and see it for yourself. It is the culmination of much hard work, and the actors are a delight to watch. Go immerse yourself in the world of Prospero’s island; despite the production’s shortcomings, you may still emerge a changed person.
The event was created and organized by the group to bring the world of rock and indie punk on to the Brandeis campus.
Despite performing songs in a different genre and style than VOS, the Chromatones similarly gave an energetic and crowd-pleasing performance that had the audience cheering when the singers would successfully hit higher and longer notes.
In the fight against racial discrimination, we, the viewers, should continue Villalongo’s spirit of fighting against racism and not letting yesterday become tomorrow.
This week, JustArts&Culture talked with Emily Pollack ’21, the director of the play “R&J,” an adaptation of Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” by Joe Calarco. The play reinvents the classic story by setting it in an all-girls Catholic school and tells a series of “forbidden” stories surrounding the four main characters.
Anyone who has written a Spotlight article or even just been to the Rose will encourage you to go and to see the exhibits on display there. I would like to take it one step further: go to the Rose and spend some quality time with a piece that DOESN’T speak to you. See what happens. It may be nothing, but you’ll never know until you try.
These are just some of the pieces that caught my eye upon my first visit. If any of these comments interest you in one of the specific pieces or the museum in general, pay a visit to this fine establishment.
As someone from a similar cultural background, I appreciated TSA’s dedication to this cultural event. The event introduced and shared the essence of Taiwanese culture while offering belonging for those who are away from home.
A Theater Arts Production of “The Tempest” by William Shakespeare will be presented on March 6 -8 and March 13-15 in Laurie Theatre. This week, JustArts&Culture spoke to Mr. Barricklo, the director of the production at the Brandeis Department of Theater Arts, about the coming events.
On Sunday night, the Undergraduate Theater Collective presented “Quickies,” the annual festival of student-written short plays.
