-Theatre in Review: The Butcher Boy (Irish Repertory Theatre)

Theatre in Review: The Butcher Boy (Irish Repertory Theatre)

It pains me to state the obvious, but in musical theatre, as in modern architecture, form follows function. This is something Asher Muldoon should consider.

-Theatre in Review: The Panic of '29 (Less Than Rent Theatre/59E59)

Theatre in Review: The Panic of '29 (Less Than Rent Theatre/59E59)

When playwright Graham Techler falls in love with a joke, the attraction is forever. So devoted is he to his little whimsies that can never let them go; instead, he trots them out repeatedly, like a proud parent showing off his darlings. ...More

-Theatre in Review: Oresteia (Almeida Theatre/Park Avenue Armory)

Theatre in Review: Oresteia (Almeida Theatre/Park Avenue Armory)

It has been a very, very long time -- perhaps never -- since I have seen a production so intimately acquainted with the terrors of the earth as Robert Icke's Oresteia. When first announced, the pairing of Hamlet ...More

-Theatre in Review: The Kite Runner (Hayes Theatre)

Theatre in Review: The Kite Runner (Hayes Theatre)

The theatre has arrived at an oddly bookish moment -- beginning, I think, with the arrival of War Horse in 2011 and rapidly accelerating since then. While Broadway's golden era saw adaptations of Ethan Frome, The Great Gatsby ...More

Theatre in Review: Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (Ruth Stage/Theatre at St. Clement's)

Maggie, the heroine of Tennessee Williams' play, demands to be heard -- indeed, her future depends on it -- so it's a problem that, in this new revival, she is so difficult to make out. Maggie, a former golden girl locked in a ...More

-Theatre in Review: Heart (Minetta Lane Theatre)

Theatre in Review: Heart (Minetta Lane Theatre)

In Heart, Jade Anouka has quite a coming-out story to tell -- up to a point. A formidable actress -- she was a standout in Phyllida Lloyd's productions of The Tempest (as Ariel) and Henry IV (as Hotspur) ...More

-Theatre in Review: Into the Woods (St. James Theatre)

Theatre in Review: Into the Woods (St. James Theatre)

To understand why this Into the Woods is so enchanting, you must first understand what it is not: Do not expect elaborate designs, magical special effects, or fancy directorial concepts. Unlike its many New York revivals -- ...More

-Theatre in Review: Twelfth Night (Classical Theatre of Harlem)

Theatre in Review: Twelfth Night (Classical Theatre of Harlem)

The infinite flexibility with which the plays of William Shakespeare accommodate directors' wildest visions is on display these nights in Harlem, where Carl Cofield's revival of Twelfth Night fills the Richard ...More

-Theatre in Review: Mister Miss America (All for One Theatre at Rattlestick Playwrights Theatre)

Theatre in Review: Mister Miss America (All for One Theatre at Rattlestick Playwrights Theatre)

I never knew it, but apparently Rattlestick Playwrights Theatre contains one of those mysterious portals that transport one to the distant past. How else to explain the building's summer tenant? On the surface, Mister Miss America ...More

-Theatre in Review: Between the Lines (Tony Kiser Theater)

Theatre in Review: Between the Lines (Tony Kiser Theater)

In the second act of Between the Lines, Delilah, the literature-besotted heroine, becomes trapped -- literally -- inside a fantasy novel, with no obvious means of escape. I think I know how she feels, having watched the cast ...More

-Theatre in Review: Richard III (New York Shakespeare Festival/Delacorte Theatre)

Theatre in Review: Richard III (New York Shakespeare Festival/Delacorte Theatre)

We've had some great productions of Richard III in recent years, along with some really terrible ones, but none have been as conflicted as Robert O'Hara's staging at the Delacorte. It's a mass of warring impulses, both ...More

-Theatre in Review: Hamlet (Almeida Theatre/Park Avenue Armory)

Theatre in Review: Hamlet (Almeida Theatre/Park Avenue Armory)

These days, it seems, Elsinore lives in a state high alert; anyway, that's the impression one takes from contemporary productions of Hamlet, which, increasingly, pit the title character against the brutal workings of ...More

-Theatre in Review: Epiphany (Lincoln Center Theater/Mitzi E. Newhouse Theatre)

Theatre in Review: Epiphany (Lincoln Center Theater/Mitzi E. Newhouse Theatre)

The Feast of the Epiphany, as you may know, celebrates the visit of the Magi to the infant Jesus Christ. This fact eludes nearly everyone in Brian Watkins' new play, even though they are gathering for dinner to celebrate it. One of ...More

-Theatre in Review: Titanique (The Asylum NYC)

Theatre in Review: Titanique (The Asylum NYC)

The summer silly season officially arrives with this frail, noisy offering, a Hollywood spoof grafted to a playlist of CĂ©line Dion hits. Indeed, Dion is the show's presiding muse: During a museum tour, she emerges from a crone's outfit, ...More

-Theatre in Review: Lessons in Survival: 1971 (Vineyard Theatre)

Theatre in Review: Lessons in Survival: 1971 (Vineyard Theatre)

We have a new genre: the James Baldwin transcript play. Last March, the theatre company known as the american vicarious presented Debate: Baldwin vs. Buckley, a nearly verbatim replay of the famous argument, at the Oxford Union, ...More

-Theatre in Review: Chains (Mint Theater Company/Theatre Row)

Theatre in Review: Chains (Mint Theater Company/Theatre Row)

Apparently, The Great Resignation really began in 1909. That's the unmistakable impression to be taken away from Chains, the latest entry in the Mint's ongoing rediscovery of the early twentieth century playwright Elizabeth ...More

-Theatre in Review: Corsicana (Playwrights Horizons)

Theatre in Review: Corsicana (Playwrights Horizons)

The average summertime high temperature in Corsicana, Texas runs to well over ninety degrees, which might explain the heavy atmosphere of languor that has overtaken Playwrights Horizons, where Will Arbery's new drama is currently ...More

-Theatre in Review: Queen (NAATCO at ART/NY Theatres)

Theatre in Review: Queen (NAATCO at ART/NY Theatres)

Those darn alternate facts get some nice people into a lot of trouble in Madhuri Shekar's taut tale of academic intrigue. Hard-working grad students Sanam and Ariel are sitting pretty -- so much so that their jealous classmates shun ...More

Theatre in Review: The Orchard (Arlekin Players Theatre/Baryshnikov Arts Center)
