-Theatre in Review: Endgame (Irish Repertory Theatre)

Theatre in Review: Endgame (Irish Repertory Theatre)

-Theatre in Review: Not About Me (Theatre for the New City)

Theatre in Review: Not About Me (Theatre for the New City)

Not About Me may be the most disingenuous title of the season; despite an ample supporting cast, Eduardo Machado's new play is all about him -- and, in his telling, his devastating effect on others. It's a ...More

-Theatre in Review: seven methods of killing kylie jenner (Under the Radar/Public Theater)

Theatre in Review: seven methods of killing kylie jenner (Under the Radar/Public Theater)

The title of Jasmine Lee-Jones' play is the sort of extreme statement that can unleash an outraged tweetstorm, which is pretty much what happens in seven methods of killing kylie jenner. Cleo, a Black, British graduate ...More

-Theatre in Review: KLII (Under the Radar/Chelsea Factory)

Theatre in Review: KLII (Under the Radar/Chelsea Factory)

The performer Kaneza Schaal has something to say, but during much of KLII she seems bent on keeping her thoughts to herself. The brief theatre piece begins with something of an audience traffic jam; arriving at Chelsea ...More

-Theatre in Review: Merrily We Roll Along (New York Theatre Workshop)

Theatre in Review: Merrily We Roll Along (New York Theatre Workshop)

-Theatre in Review: Between Riverside and Crazy (Second Stage/Helen Hayes Theatre)

Theatre in Review: Between Riverside and Crazy (Second Stage/Helen Hayes Theatre)

Few playwrights let their characters run off at the mouth as entertainingly as Stephen Adly Guirgis. In Between Riverside and Crazy some of the choicest comments come from Walter Washington, aka Pops (a term he hates), ...More

-Theatre in Review: Ohio State Murders (James Earl Jones Theatre)

Theatre in Review: Ohio State Murders (James Earl Jones Theatre)

How great an actress is Audra McDonald? As the lights come up at the Jones, she is seen standing with her back to the audience, and, instantly, a hush falls across the theatre. She has done nothing -- we haven't even seen her face - ...More

-Theatre in Review: Des Moines (Theatre for a New Audience)

Theatre in Review: Des Moines (Theatre for a New Audience)

It's a conundrum, I know, but the weirder Des Moines gets, the duller it becomes -- largely, I suspect, because it has no animating spirit of its own. Making its belated New York premiere, this 2007 drama by the late Denis ...More

-Theatre in Review: Some Like It Hot (Shubert Theatre)

Theatre in Review: Some Like It Hot (Shubert Theatre)

-Theatre in Review: Becky Nurse of Salem (Lincoln Center Theatre/Mitzi E. Newhouse Theatre)

Theatre in Review: Becky Nurse of Salem (Lincoln Center Theatre/Mitzi E. Newhouse Theatre)

Is Deirdre O'Connell a witch? You have to wonder. She is certainly a practiced spellbinder, a talent that she exercises to the infinite benefit of Sarah Ruhl's latest offering. She enters -- totally frazzled, her hair a ...More

-Theatre in Review: Ain't No Mo' (Belasco Theatre)

Theatre in Review: Ain't No Mo' (Belasco Theatre)

Ain't No Mo', which is scheduled to depart the Belasco on Sunday after 22 performances, is the second show to disappear from Broadway in unseemly haste. (The other is KPOP, which closed this past Sunday.) This ...More

-Theatre in Review: The Far Country (Atlantic Theater Company)

Theatre in Review: The Far Country (Atlantic Theater Company)

When the powerful moments come in The Far Country, they are usually throwaways, offhand comments discreetly packed with dynamite that catch one by surprise. We are first introduced to Gee, who has come to China to purchase a ...More

-Theatre in Review: KPOP (Circle in the Square Theatre)

Theatre in Review: KPOP (Circle in the Square Theatre)

It grieves me to say it, but KPOP has lost its pop -- also its snap and crackle. A critical and popular success five years ago in an immersive, walk-through production that was surely unsustainable for more than a limited run ...More
