Adapted from the Greek tragedy trilogy, Ellen McLaughlin’s The Oresteia is playing at Shakespeare Theatre Company through June 2. On the surface, it’s an epic story about love, betrayal, murder and revenge. But at its core, The Oresteia is a critique of human civilization. McLaughlin condenses the trilogy into one dynamic show with expert finesse.

You can use code 19UNDER35 for your $25 ticket to Young Prose Night next Wednesday, May 22, and receive a complimentary wine or Ballast Point Brewing Company Lager! http://www.shakespearetheatre.org/tickets-and-events/special-offers/under-35/#ypn

SHAED Rise To The Top Together - On Tap Magazine

The path to making it in music has never been linear. In the social media age, it’s become a bit cleaner. For DC’s SHAED, an electro-pop trio formed in 2016, a combination of almost every success marker in music of the past 20 years brought them to where they are now.

The path to making it in music has never been linear. In the social media age, it’s become a bit cleaner – blog support, streaming and ravenous music fans on the Internet rallying behind you can quickly take an artist out of local obscurity and into the national spotlight. For DC’s SHAED, an e...
