WaPo Pushes ‘Sophisticated’ DC Events
So much to choose from … best to rely on the Editors’ Picks – there are only five of them. Two of the five look promising. First, you can enjoy a “Drag Queen Brunch” in Dupont Circle, then it’s off to the African American Civil War Memorial for … “Bare Breasted Women Sword Fighting.”
This topless dueling took place yesterday, as part of the “Capital Fringe Festival,” a performing arts festival that bills itself as “Rebellious and adventurous.”
“Bare Breasted Women Sword Fighting” was, according to the Post’s “Quick Take,” “A martial whirl of femininity and breasts.”
But an editorial review by Nelson Pressley assured readers that there was more to the event. “They'll show some skin, but this ain't yer daddy's strip club. They're going to play with conventions and make you think about it.” Bare breasted women sword fighting, Pressley said, was “some of the most sophisticated comedy I've seen so far on the Fringe.”
Sophisticated. Got that?
