Theatre in Review: The Apiary (Second Stage/Tony Kiser Theatre)

-Theatre in Review: Spiritus/Virgil's Dance (Rattlestick Theater)

Theatre in Review: Spiritus/Virgil's Dance (Rattlestick Theater)

Spiritus/Virgil's Dance finds writer-performer Dael Orlandersmith in a minor key, so much so that I wonder if theatre is the right format for it. In pieces like Until the Flood, Forever, and Horsedreams ...More

Theatre in Review: you don't have to do anything (HERE Arts Center)

-Theatre in Review: The Connector (MCC)

Theatre in Review: The Connector (MCC)

A slow season for musicals -- so far, that is; hold on for the spring onslaught -- gets a jolt with this tart tale of journalistic scandal, unfolding in the sunset of magazine publishing's golden era. The Connector isn't ...More

-Theatre In Review: Jonah (Roundabout Theatre at Laura Pels Theatre)

Theatre In Review: Jonah (Roundabout Theatre at Laura Pels Theatre)

In the program for her new play, Rachel Bonds notes that its time frame is "the past and the present. But everything is slippery." That's putting it mildly. Among the many questions you're likely to be asking yourself at the Laura ...More

-Theatre in Review: Days of Wine and Roses (Studio 54)

Theatre in Review: Days of Wine and Roses (Studio 54)

-Theatre in Review: Aristocrats (Irish Repertory Theatre)

Theatre in Review: Aristocrats (Irish Repertory Theatre)

In Aristocrats, the past isn't just another country; it is indescribably distant. Casimir, a representative of faded Irish gentry, is the custodian of his family's history, which he curates, in detail, to Tom, a visiting ...More

Theatre in Review: The Greatest Hits Down Route 66 (New Light Theater Project/59E59

-Theatre in Review: Crime and Punishment (Phoenix Theatre Ensemble/ART New York Theatres)

Theatre in Review: Crime and Punishment (Phoenix Theatre Ensemble/ART New York Theatres)

On the face of it, the idea of boiling down Fyodor Dostoevsky's sprawling novel to ninety minutes and three actors seems like the most Sisyphean of endeavors. Then again, the maximalist approach hasn't been successful. At least two ...More

Theatre in Review: Our Class (Arlekin Players/Brooklyn Academy of Music)
