Theatre in Review: Carmen Jones (Classic Stage Company)

There are, I think, two ways of looking at this thoroughly unexpected revival of Carmen Jones. On the one hand, it is likely to go down as one of the season's most fascinating curios, a revival of a show that for many years ...More

-Theatre in Review: Cyprus Avenue (The Public Theater)

Theatre in Review: Cyprus Avenue (The Public Theater)

It's a strange experience to see a fine actor giving a tour-de-force performance in a play that goes irreparably off the rails, but such is the singular experience of Cyprus Avenue. Stephen Rea spares himself nothing ...More

-Theatre in Review: Lonesome Blues (York Theatre Company)

Theatre in Review: Lonesome Blues (York Theatre Company)

-Theatre in Review: Teenage Dick (Ma-Yi Theater Company/The Public Theater)

Theatre in Review: Teenage Dick (Ma-Yi Theater Company/The Public Theater)

Theatre in Review: Othello (The Public Theater at the Delacorte Theater)

-Theatre in Review: First Love (Cherry Lane Theatre)

Theatre in Review: First Love (Cherry Lane Theatre)

It's time to steel ourselves for the rise of what must be called karaoke drama. A couple of weeks ago, Theater Breaking Through Barriers opened a revival of A. R. Gurney's The Fourth Wall, the action of which is punctuated by cast ...More

Theatre in Review: Little Rock (Sheen Center)

In the second act of Rajendra Ramoon Maharaj's new play, a fifteen-year-old girl stands in an empty school auditorium singing the old Debbie Reynolds hit, "Tammy." It Is 1958, and she is Minnijean Brown, one of the Little ...More

-Theatre in Review: Half Time (Paper Mill Playhouse)

Theatre in Review: Half Time (Paper Mill Playhouse)

Jerry Mitchell has become so successful that even he is now turning out school-of-Jerry Mitchell shows. That the director-choreographer's latest project could have been called The Full Monty: The AARP Edition isn't ...More

-Theatre in Review: Everyone's Fine With Virginia Woolf (Elevator Repair Service/Abrons Arts Center)

Theatre in Review: Everyone's Fine With Virginia Woolf (Elevator Repair Service/Abrons Arts Center)

It is, of course, inevitable: Yesterday's iconoclast must become part of the establishment and, therefore, ripe for overturning. When Edward Albee wrote Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, in 1962, many theatregoers were shocked and ...More

-Theatre in Review: Secret Life of Humans (59E59)

Theatre in Review: Secret Life of Humans (59E59)

Secret Life of Humans is a curious, if frequently beguiling, thing -- an investigation into a scientific career adulterated by a penchant for mythmaking -- that, to make its point, must construct a myth of its own. It's easy ...More
