-Theatre in Review: Money Talks (Davenport Theatre)

Theatre in Review: Money Talks (Davenport Theatre)

The title of this new musical is not a metaphor. In the opening number, "I'm Money," George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Alexander Hamilton, and Benjamin Franklin -- familiar faces on one-, five-, ten-, and hundred-dollar bills -- appear ...More

-Theatre in Review: Amerike: The Golden Land (National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene)

Theatre in Review: Amerike: The Golden Land (National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene)

This brisk, funny, and touching musical revue, which just extended its run at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, takes audiences through the whirlwind of the American Jewish immigrant experience, from the turn of the last century to the end of ...More

-Theatre in Review: Say Something Bunny! (UNDO Project Space)

Theatre in Review: Say Something Bunny! (UNDO Project Space)

One of the oddest and most captivating entertainments of the new season is located far off the beaten path in a rather anonymous building on the 500 block of West 20th Street. You make your way to the third floor -- you need to follow the ...More

-Theatre in Review: Hamlet (The Public Theater)

Theatre in Review: Hamlet (The Public Theater)

Before it collapses in a heap of mannerisms and conflicting acting styles, Sam Gold's contemporary take on Hamlet manages some remarkable effects. This is a minimalist vision of the play, at times as intimate as a whisper. ...More

-Theatre in Review: Me the People (Triad Theater)

Theatre in Review: Me the People (Triad Theater)

Subtitled "The Trump America Musical," Me the People wants to do for the current cockeyed state of American politics what Forbidden Broadway has long done for the follies of the Great White Way. Basically, Nancy ...More

-Theatre in Review: 1984 (Hudson Theatre)

Theatre in Review: 1984 (Hudson Theatre)

"If you leave your seat for any reason during the performance, you will not be permitted to return." So says the insert in Playbills currently being handed out at the Hudson Theatre; at the performance I attended, the usher offered a ...More

Theatre in Review: Marvin's Room (Roundabout Theatre Company/American Airlines Theatre)

Well into the second act of Marvin's Room, the heroine, Bessie -- who has spent the bulk of her adult life caring for others -- admits to her long-estranged sister, Lee, that she once enjoyed a romantic relationship with a ...More

-Theatre in Review: Bastard Jones (The Cell)

Theatre in Review: Bastard Jones (The Cell)

When it comes to Henry Fielding's seminal comic novel, theatre people are moths to the flame; unfortunately, they usually end up seared. The website Ovrtur.com, which keeps track of such things, lists seven different musical theatre ...More

-Theatre in Review: Napoli, Brooklyn (Roundabout at Laura Pels Theatre)

Theatre in Review: Napoli, Brooklyn (Roundabout at Laura Pels Theatre)

Napoli, Brooklyn is, for much of its running time, a remarkably sluggish drama built around a first-act curtain so shocking that I'm a little surprised it doesn't nightly inspire an audience panic attack. It's a force majeure ...More

-Theatre in Review: Fulfillment Center (Manhattan Theatre Club City Center Stage II)

Theatre in Review: Fulfillment Center (Manhattan Theatre Club City Center Stage II)

The title of Abe Koogler's new play couldn't be more ironic; it refers to one of those big warehouses from which goods purchased on the Internet are shipped. Fulfillment Center, the play, is a snapshot of American ...More

-Theatre in Review: Afterglow/The Crusade of Connor Stephens

Theatre in Review: Afterglow/The Crusade of Connor Stephens

Two sure signs that it is June in New York: Playbill covers have a rainbow header to observe Gay Pride Month, and -- in a not unrelated development -- gaysploitation dramas pop up Off Broadway, hoping to get a leg up with the influx ...More

-Theatre in Review: (Not) Water (New Georges at 3LD Art & Technology Center)

Theatre in Review: (Not) Water (New Georges at 3LD Art & Technology Center)

In 2012, in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, 3LD Art & Technology Center was flooded, a near-death experience for a company that had become a major player in the New York theatre scene. For this reason alone, it is an all-too-appropriate ...More

-Theatre in Review: Measure for Measure (Theatre for a New Audience)

Theatre in Review: Measure for Measure (Theatre for a New Audience)

"Oh, look -- a butt plug." You don't often hear that comment at a Shakespeare production, but that's what the woman behind me said as we entered the auditorium at Theatre for a New Audience a few nights ago. Her observation was accurate, ...More

-Theatre in Review: The Traveling Lady (Cherry Lane Theatre)/The Aran Islands (Irish Rep Theatre)

Theatre in Review: The Traveling Lady (Cherry Lane Theatre)/The Aran Islands (Irish Rep Theatre)

Horton Foote never let a piece of material go to waste. Consider The Traveling Lady, currently receiving a genial, if undistinguished, production at the Cherry Lane. A quick flop on Broadway in 1954 with Kim Stanley as ...More

Theatre in Review: The Cooping Theory: Who Killed Edgar Allan Poe?/Seeing You

-Theatre in Review: Cost of Living/Kill Move Paradise

Theatre in Review: Cost of Living/Kill Move Paradise

Two new plays cast mordant glances at some of the issues currently eating away at our social fabric. Because two of the four characters in Cost of Living (now playing at Manhattan Theatre Club/City Center) are severely ...More

-Theatre in Review: Attack of the Elvis Impersonators (Theatre Row)

Theatre in Review: Attack of the Elvis Impersonators (Theatre Row)

To begin with, the above title is misleading. There is no attack and there is only one Elvis impersonator. His name is Drac Frenzie, and, as the show begins, he is a rock star fronting a band named Heavy Bone, currently appearing on the ...More

-Theatre in Review: My Eyes Went Dark (59E59)

Theatre in Review: My Eyes Went Dark (59E59)

It was less than a year ago that the Irish actor Declan Conlon delivered a stunning performance, simmering with barely suppressed violence, in Quietly, a drama about the poisonous legacy of Ireland's religious troubles. Now ...More

-Theatre in Review: Invincible (59E59)

Theatre in Review: Invincible (59E59)

It was a funny experience seeing Invincible the night before the snap election that brought Theresa May and the Conservative Party to its knees, for Torben Betts' play aims to examine the cultural and economic divides ...More

-Theatre in Review: Bella: An American Tall Tale (Playwrights Horizons)

Theatre in Review: Bella: An American Tall Tale (Playwrights Horizons)

This isn't a term I toss around loosely, but 42nd Street is becoming the place for theatrical booty calls. Last month saw a revival of Suzan-Lori Parks' Venus, in which all of Regency London becomes obsessed with the voluptuous ...More
