A Short-Term Solution to a Long-Term Problem

Recommended, Don’t Miss

Hugo House Capitol Hill

$15

Let's just start with bald-faced honesty: Writer, solo performer, and Stranger graduate David Schmader is a literary hero of mine and he should be one of yours. His protean wit, his willingness to stare without blinking into howlingly painful emotional cyclones, and his unfailingly calibrated ethical compass are three virtues every writer should strive to emulate. His hilarious but humane solo show A Short-Term Solution to a Long-Term Problem is "a comedy about unfunny things": children who die, adults who get sick, and the intricate damage religion can inflict on young people. This performance is Schmader at his best, and sitting through it is not only a sublimely funny experience—it could also make you a better person. BRENDAN KILEY
