-Theatre in Review: Days to Come (Mint Theater Company/Theatre Row)

Theatre in Review: Days to Come (Mint Theater Company/Theatre Row)

Days to Come isn't a very good play, and I'm awfully glad that the Mint is presenting it. That's a contradiction, I know, but we're talking about Lillian Hellman, who for her seventy-nine years on this earth was a ...More

-Theatre in Review: Pretty Woman (Nederlander Theatre)

Theatre in Review: Pretty Woman (Nederlander Theatre)

The romance is off. I can't say I was a huge fan of the 1990 film Pretty Woman -- for me, romantic comedy died just after the release of The Philadelphia Story -- but the nascent star power of Julia Roberts and her chemistry ...More

Theatre in Review: Henry VI (National Asian American Theatre Company/ART New York Theatres)

Theatre in Review: Gettin' the Band Back Together (Belasco Theatre)

I caught up with the new tenant at the Belasco rather after the fact, having been bumped from a performance last week due to an illness in the cast. Meanwhile, the press pretty much filleted Getting' the Band Back Together, ...More

-Theatre in Review: Be More Chill (Pershing Square Signature Center)

Theatre in Review: Be More Chill (Pershing Square Signature Center)

There's a genuine grass-roots musical-theatre event happening Off Broadway, and the big questions about Be More Chill are if it can transition from a boutique hit to a breakout success -- and if it deserves to do so. Neither ...More

-Theatre in Review: Summer Shorts Series A (59E59)

Theatre in Review: Summer Shorts Series A (59E59)

The first entry in this long-running festival of one-act plays could fairly be titled Summer Shorts: The Men Are Scum Edition, so thoroughly does it inventory the seemingly natural depredations of the male sex. Abby Rosebrock ...More
