Theatre in Review: Burn This (Hudson Theatre)

Because the male lead role is catnip to young actors looking for a tour de force, Burn This most likely will always be with us, but there's no getting around the fact that Lanford Wilson's 1987 play is one of his minor works. ...More

-Theatre in Review: Juno and the Paycock (Irish Repertory Theatre)

Theatre in Review: Juno and the Paycock (Irish Repertory Theatre)

Theatre in Review: Oklahoma! (Circle in the Square Theatre)/Sincerely, Oscar (Theatre Row)

Theatre in Review: Mrs. Murray's Menagerie (Ars Nova/Greenwich House)

-Theatre in Review: Ain't Too Proud (Imperial Theatre)
