Theatre in Review: Clueless, the Musical (The New Group/Pershing Square Signature Center)

-Theatre in Review: The Hard Problem (Lincoln Center Theater/Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater)

Theatre in Review: The Hard Problem (Lincoln Center Theater/Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater)

Theatre in Review: Thom Pain (based on nothing) (Signature Theatre)

A great many members of the press -- and, based on the Show-Score numbers, a fair number of regular theatregoers -- have found much to love in Thom Pain (based on nothing). I am baffled by this phenomenon. Indeed, I'm ...More

Theatre in Review: Vivian's Music, 1969 (59E59)/Hype Man (The Flea Theater)

Two new plays tackle the always-thorny issue of race in America, in markedly different ways; each is well worth your attention. Vivian's Music, 1969 introduces two characters living in Omaha in the year of the title. Vivian is a ...More

-Theatre in Review: The Prom (Longacre Theatre)

Theatre in Review: The Prom (Longacre Theatre)

-Theatre in Review: King Kong (Broadway Theatre)

Theatre in Review: King Kong (Broadway Theatre)

The newest, biggest star on Broadway needs an entourage of at least a dozen to prop him up and keep him going. I don't mean this in a bad way; it's merely to acknowledge the extraordinary achievement that is the title character of the new ...More

-Theatre in Review: Shadow of Heroes (Metropolitan Playhouse)

Theatre in Review: Shadow of Heroes (Metropolitan Playhouse)

An ugly, but gripping, slice of twentieth-century European history is recalled in Shadow of Heroes, which details how Hungary's post-World War II Communist dawn was darkened by the shadow of the Soviet Union and ultimately wiped ...More

Theatre in Review: The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui (Classic Stage Company)

If Raúl Esparza ever decides to become a demagogue, we're all in trouble. As the title character in Bertolt Brecht's allegory about the rise of a Hitler-like figure, the actor starts out unassumingly, coming across like a ...More

-Theatre in Review: Wild Goose Dreams (Public Theater)

Theatre in Review: Wild Goose Dreams (Public Theater)

Wild Goose Dreams has such a touching and up-to-the-moment story to tell, it's a pity that Hansol Jung, the playwright, and Leigh Silverman, the director, didn't trust it more. You sometimes have to stare very ...More
