Playwright-performer Sarah Jones "plays with the spaces between" questions about self-creation for her one-woman shows, Surface Transit (2000), Tony award-winning Bridge & Tunnel (2004, produced by Meryl Streep), and Sell/Buy/Date (2016). Jones slips seamlessly into character during her shows, donning their props and accents: elderly Jewish Lorraine; soft-spoken Lakota Gary; fast-talking feminist Bella; and many others.Her most recent play, Sell/Buy/Date, came about in part due to experiences she had performing for audiences that weren't her "usual well-heeled Broadway" crowd, and which caused her to think...

April is finally here, which means rainy days spent daydreaming about future sunny ones, and planning which summer festivals we will be attending this summer. While the current political climate may make us feel like we don't have time to plan or attend music festivals, one music festival is working on bringing together music, communities, and activism this summer: Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago, IL. "It's a pretty volatile political climate," Pitchfork President Chris Kaskie told BUST in a phone interview. "It is volatile comprehensively, and...

Dartmouth College student Kaya Thomas went to the library almost every day after high school. In a 2015 blog post for Stories From Women In Tech, Thomas recalls, 'I tended to pick up three or four books to read a week. Reading served as a great escape for a nerdy black girl... who had often felt very different than most of my peers.'  But in order to engage with the narratives available in her library, Thomas often had to imagine herself 'as a white teen girl with...

After tabloids forcibly outed director Lilly Wachowski last spring and harassed Caitlyn Jenner prior to her coming out in 2015, it has become...

Unseen letters by the American poet and writer claim domestic abuse against her estranged husband Ted Hughes. Some allegedly state that Hughes beat her and wanted her dead just days before her miscarriage, the Guardian reports.
