Theatre in Review: Merrily We Roll Along (Fiasco Theater/Roundabout Theatre Company)

Merrily We Roll Along has the dubious status of being the most picked-over of Stephen Sondheim's musicals. Ever since its doomed 1981 opening -- an event seismic enough to be recorded in the excellent documentary "Best ...More

Theatre in Review: Lolita, My Love (York Theatre Company)

Theatre in Review: To Kill a Mockingbird (Shubert Theatre)

-Theatre in Review: The Shadow of a Gunman (Irish Repertory Theatre)

Theatre in Review: The Shadow of a Gunman (Irish Repertory Theatre)

The Shadow of a Gunman bills itself as a tragedy, and while it does arrive, eventually, at that designation -- in a second act that is savage in its violence and candid about the cowardice of its leading characters -- it ...More

Theatre in Review: Fiddler on the Roof (National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene/Stage 42)

-Theatre in Review: The Neurology of the Soul (Untitled Theater Company/ART New York Theatres)

Theatre in Review: The Neurology of the Soul (Untitled Theater Company/ART New York Theatres)

Some men yearn to peer into their lady loves' hearts; Stephen, one of the leads in The Neurology of the Soul, is more of a cerebrum man, forever gazing into the brain of Amy, his wife. Stephen is a cognitive neuroscientist, ...More

Theatre in Review: State of the Union (Metropolitan Playhouse)

-Theatre in Review: My Very Own British Invasion (Paper Mill Playhouse)

Theatre in Review: My Very Own British Invasion (Paper Mill Playhouse)

Baby boomers looking for a rockin' good time will find a cornucopia of mid-sixties chart-toppers in My Very Own British Invasion; they'll also find a musical at war with itself, thanks to a book and score that never manage ...More

-Theatre in Review: Sea Wall/A Life (The Public Theater)

Theatre in Review: Sea Wall/A Life (The Public Theater)

A couple of spellbinders are holding forth at the Public's Newman Theater these nights. Quite apart from their considerable emotional impact, these intriguingly paired solo pieces provide a fascinating study in how two very different -- ...More

-Theatre in Review: Bonnie's Last Flight (Next Door at NYTW)

Theatre in Review: Bonnie's Last Flight (Next Door at NYTW)

Bonnie's Last Flight is a production design in search of a play. For this dramatic flight to nowhere, Meredith Ries has plausibly mocked up an airline interior that may remind you of your more uncomfortable adventures ...More

-Theatre in Review: The Waiting Game (Snowy Owl/59E59)

Theatre in Review: The Waiting Game (Snowy Owl/59E59)

There's plenty of waiting around but not much payoff in Charles Gershman's new drama, which features one of most pronounced lineups of basket cases to be seen this season. The script consists of fragmented scenes presented with ...More

-Theatre in Review: The Day Before Spring (York Theatre Company)

Theatre in Review: The Day Before Spring (York Theatre Company)

Not too terribly long into The Day Before Spring, a show that is struggling to establish an identity, it suddenly -- if briefly -- develops a sharp, satirical slant and a jaunty, couldn't-care-less attitude that simply can't ...More

-Theatre in Review: God Said This (Primary Stages/Cherry Lane Theatre)

Theatre in Review: God Said This (Primary Stages/Cherry Lane Theatre)

God Said This is that true theatrical rarity, a sequel. About two and a half years ago, playwright Leah Nanako Winkler gave us Kentucky, a distinctly bumpy wedding of screwball farce and dysfunctional family ...More

-Theatre in Review: The Light (MCC Theater)

Theatre in Review: The Light (MCC Theater)

A pair of longtime lovers gets engaged in The Light, but, instead of champagne, long-buried wounds are opened, with profound, possibly irrevocable consequences. This compact, superbly acted two-hander opens a new front in ...More

-Theatre in Review: The Dance of Death/Mies Julie (Classic Stage Company)

Theatre in Review: The Dance of Death/Mies Julie (Classic Stage Company)

You get your choice of August Strindberg in this pairing: straight, no chaser, or remixed; each comes with a strong whiff of brimstone. Conor McPherson's version of The Dance of Death is, essentially, ...More

-Theatre in Review: The Trial of the Catonsville Nine (Transit Group and NAATCO/Abrons Art Center)

Theatre in Review: The Trial of the Catonsville Nine (Transit Group and NAATCO/Abrons Art Center)

Off Broadway continues its ad hoc lives-of-the-saints series with this revival of the 1971 drama about a famous (or notorious) anti-Vietnam War protest, featuring the activist priests Daniel and Philip Berrigan. It's a ...More

Theatre in Review: Ah, Wilderness! (Blackfriars Repertory and Storm Theatre Company/Sheen Center)

This production of Ah, Wilderness! begins with the strains of Stephen Foster's "Beautiful Dreamer," a canny choice that cuts to the heart of what is so remarkable about O'Neill's classic domestic comedy. It is ...More

-Theatre in Review: Carmelina (Musicals in Mufti/York Theatre Company)

Theatre in Review: Carmelina (Musicals in Mufti/York Theatre Company)

This is the third time that the York has presented a Mufti version of Carmelina, a show that clearly obsesses James Morgan, the artistic director -- and it is easy to see why. This year, the Mufti season of forgotten ...More
