-Theatre in Review: Kimberly Akimbo (Atlantic Theater Company)

Theatre in Review: Kimberly Akimbo (Atlantic Theater Company)

Because so many contemporary musicals are content to rehash old material, it's notable when a creative team transforms a difficult dramatic work with music, providing it with an identity of its own. When it opened Off Broadway in 2003, ...More

-Theatre in Review: Camille O'Sullivan: Where Are We Now? (Irish Arts Center)

Theatre in Review: Camille O'Sullivan: Where Are We Now? (Irish Arts Center)

Camille O'Sullivan is quite the trickster. She takes the stage, looking rather distrait if not outright frazzled, a bundle of nerves fretting about her shoes and a missing credit card. Carrying on distractedly, rooting around the ...More

-Theatre in Review: Clyde's (Second Stage/Helen Hayes Theatre)

Theatre in Review: Clyde's (Second Stage/Helen Hayes Theatre)

Are we sure Lynn Nottage is only one person? It's not just that she never repeats herself -- she seems to practically reinvent her talent from play to play. Clyde's may not go down as one of her major works, but it ...More

-Theatre in Review: Diana (Longacre Theatre)

Theatre in Review: Diana (Longacre Theatre)

You've probably read a great deal about Diana -- very little of it adulatory, I'm sure -- but the new musical at the Longacre doesn't definitively lose its mind until just after intermission. Before that, everyone involved ...More

-Theatre in Review: Morning's at Seven (Theatre at St. Clement's)

Theatre in Review: Morning's at Seven (Theatre at St. Clement's)

Morning's at Seven is one of American drama's true unicorns, a Chekhovian family comedy that, dismissed in its 1938 debut, has gradually acquired the feel of a classic. And for good reason: It's a peerless study of hidden-in ...More

-Theatre in Review: The Alchemist (Red Bull Theater/New World Stages)

Theatre in Review: The Alchemist (Red Bull Theater/New World Stages)

Before we get to talking about the frantic, brazenly dishonest, and riotously reprehensible shenanigans that make up this production, one thing must be made clear. This is not Ben Jonson's The Alchemist. Adaptor Jeffrey ...More

-Theatre in Review: A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing (Irish Repertory Theatre)

Theatre in Review: A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing (Irish Repertory Theatre)

A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing demonstrates what is arresting and yet worrying about so much contemporary Irish drama. This remorseless account of a young woman's upbringing is filled with stream-of-consciousness writing, individual ...More

-Theatre in Review: Cullud Wattah (The Public Theater)

Theatre in Review: Cullud Wattah (The Public Theater)

In her two most recent works, playwright Erika Dickerson-Despenza functions as a kind of alchemist, transmuting water into theatre that is both magical and disturbing. Given an audio production by the Public last April, shadow/la ...More

Theatre in Review: Trevor (Stage 42)

The title character of Trevor is an adolescent work in progress but Holden William Hagelberger, who plays him, is a fully formed talent. Playing a nonconforming eighth-grader whose heart (and hormones) are pushing him ...More

-Theatre in Review: Assassins (Classic Stage Company)

Theatre in Review: Assassins (Classic Stage Company)

The good news for the theatre is the bad news for us: Assassins is back, as bilious and brilliant as ever, offering its uncanny funhouse-mirror reflection of America at its most cankerous and paranoid. A musical dismissed by ...More
