-Theatre in Review: Miss You Like Hell (The Public Theater)

Theatre in Review: Miss You Like Hell (The Public Theater)

The unambiguous reason to see this new musical at the Public is Gizel Jimenez. As Olivia, a bookish, lone-wolf adolescent who pours out every detail of her angry heart in a blog, earning a loyal fan base, she is more than capable of ...More

-Theatre in Review: Lobby Hero (Second Stage/Hayes Theatre)

Theatre in Review: Lobby Hero (Second Stage/Hayes Theatre)

With its underachieving characters, most of whom have a tendency to run off at the mouth, Lobby Hero might be classified by some as a slacker play, not unlike This is Our Youth, playwright Kenneth Lonergan's ...More

-Theatre in Review: This Flat Earth (Playwrights Horizons)

Theatre in Review: This Flat Earth (Playwrights Horizons)

In This Flat Earth, playwright Lindsey Ferrentino clearly wants to say something about the spate of school shootings that has plagued this country -- but exactly what she has in mind never becomes clear. The play is a ...More

-Theatre in Review: The Lucky Ones (Ars Nova/Connelly Theatre)

Theatre in Review: The Lucky Ones (Ars Nova/Connelly Theatre)

In their previous show, Hundred Days -- seen only a few months ago -- Abigail and Shaun Bengson offered a remarkably incomplete confession. This musical memoir focused on their meeting, followed by a rush into marriage ...More

-Theatre in Review: Mean Girls (August Wilson Theatre)

Theatre in Review: Mean Girls (August Wilson Theatre)

The title characters of Mean Girls are no better than they should be, and so is the musical that they inhabit. Given the fan base of the 2004 film -- by Tina Fey -- on which it is based, the musical probably only needed to be ...More

-Theatre in Review: Three Tall Women (Golden Theatre)

Theatre in Review: Three Tall Women (Golden Theatre)

"I. Am. Here!" So says Glenda Jackson, delivering each word with enough force to drive piles into the foundation of the Golden Theatre. Really, she doesn't need to assert herself; she has had us from the start, when she announced, ...More

-Theatre in Review: Feeding the Dragon (Primary Stages/Cherry Lane Theatre)

Theatre in Review: Feeding the Dragon (Primary Stages/Cherry Lane Theatre)

When I was a boy, I would have loved nothing more than to live in a library -- for this bookish youth, it would have been the perfect wedding of supply and demand -- and I am frankly envious that Sharon Washington got to do so. In ...More

-Theatre in Review: The Winter's Tale (Theatre for a New Audience)

Theatre in Review: The Winter's Tale (Theatre for a New Audience)

In her new production of Shakespeare's fascinating, famously troubled drama, the director Arin Arbus does something extremely daring: She opens the show with the bear. You remember him: He usually shows up at the halfway point, the ...More

-Theatre in Review: Angels in America, Parts I and II (Neil Simon Theatre)

Theatre in Review: Angels in America, Parts I and II (Neil Simon Theatre)

When you attend a Tony Kushner play, you must expect revelations. I happened to see Angels in America on Holy Thursday and Good Friday -- and, partly thanks to Marianne Elliott's staging, a magnificent thing of ...More

-Theatre in Review: Yerma (Young Vic/Park Avenue Armory)

Theatre in Review: Yerma (Young Vic/Park Avenue Armory)

The set designer Lizzie Clachan has created a kind of human terrarium for Yerma, an appropriately clinical space in which to witness the tragedy of a woman driven to madness by her inability to conceive a child. It's a ...More

-Theatre in Review: A Walk in the Woods (The Barrow Group)

Theatre in Review: A Walk in the Woods (The Barrow Group)

I never thought I'd say this, but I'm getting nostalgic for the Cold War. Well, almost: Of course, during those years, there was a good chance that the world would be blown to bits -- but, really, the rules of engagement were clear, and, ...More

-Theatre in Review: Pygmalion (Bedlam/Sheen Center)

Theatre in Review: Pygmalion (Bedlam/Sheen Center)

The people at Bedlam are much more respectful of George Bernard Shaw than James M. Barrie. Only a few months ago, they sliced and diced Peter Pan into a nearly incomprehensible performance piece seemingly designed to violate ...More

(27/03/2018)

-Theatre in Review: Babette's Feast (Theatre at St. Clement's)

Theatre in Review: Babette's Feast (Theatre at St. Clement's)

A trio of fine theatre artists, aided by a generally sterling company (with an assist from Isak Dinesen), have cooked up a distinctly theatrical dish in Babette's Feast, and how you feel about it will most likely ...More

-Theatre in Review: Admissions (Lincoln Center Theater/Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater)

Theatre in Review: Admissions (Lincoln Center Theater/Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater)

If, as Martin Luther King said, the long arc of history bends toward justice, Joshua Harmon wants you to know that there are plenty of wrong turns and roadblocks along the way. In his Off-Broadway debut, Bad Jews, which ...More

-Theatre in Review: The Stone Witch (Westside Theatre)

Theatre in Review: The Stone Witch (Westside Theatre)

The age-old challenge of dramatizing the problems of writers and artists is keenly felt at the Westside Theatre, where Shem Bitterman's soapy melodrama is currently playing. The Stone Witch is preoccupied with the ...More

-Theatre in Review: Dido of Idaho (Ensemble Studio Theatre/Radio Drama Network)

Theatre in Review: Dido of Idaho (Ensemble Studio Theatre/Radio Drama Network)

Abby Rosebrock, a new face, plants herself firmly on the theatre map with this head-swiveling new work. Dido of Idaho starts out as a riff on an old-fashioned sex-comedy premise, but with its train-wreck heroine, ...More

-Theatre in Review: Shakespeare's Will (NACL Theatre/HERE)

Theatre in Review: Shakespeare's Will (NACL Theatre/HERE)

The title of Vern Thiessen's 2005 solo show is a Shakespearean pun: The play focuses less on Will Shakespeare than on the will of Shakespeare, who, as the play begins, has just been buried, having expired at the age of 52 (not bad ...More

-Theatre in Review: My Brilliant Divorce (Fallen Angel Theatre Company/New Ohio Theatre)

Theatre in Review: My Brilliant Divorce (Fallen Angel Theatre Company/New Ohio Theatre)

As divorces go, the one detailed in Geraldine Aron's 2001 solo piece is at best an average affair, culled from a dozen chick-lit novels and an uncountable number of movies and plays dating back to when Jill Clayburgh found herself ...More

-Theatre in Review: Old Stock (2B Theatre Company/59E59)

Theatre in Review: Old Stock (2B Theatre Company/59E59)

The coming-to-America story has been worked over so many times -- from Rags to Ragtime to The Golden Land, to name but three examples -- that one might legitimately fear that there is little new to say about it. ...More

-Theatre in Review: Education (Sanguine Theatre Company/59E59)

Theatre in Review: Education (Sanguine Theatre Company/59E59)

Whatever else you want to say about Education, it certainly showcases playwright Brian Dykstra's talent for composing rants. Time and again, the characters in his provocative, if overloaded, drama spout off, furiously and ...More
