-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: 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

-Theatre in Review: Julius Caesar (The Public Theater at the Delacorte Theater)

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

The plan was to give Julius Caesar a ripped-from-the-headlines quality; instead, this production, running in Central Park through this weekend, is making headlines. Even as theatre fans watched the Tony Awards on ...More

-Theatre in Review: Somebody's Daughter (Second Stage Uptown)

Theatre in Review: Somebody's Daughter (Second Stage Uptown)

Chisa Hutchinson's new drama could have been called Three Asian American Women on the Edge of a Nervous Breakdown -- and the thing that drives them all crazy is the culture in which they were born. Kate Wu, a high school ...More

Environmental disaster, the demonization of immigrants, authoritarian political figures, the yawning gulf between rich and poor: I am, of course, talking about America in the 1930s, not 2017, although you weren't sure about that, were you? ...More

-Theatre in Review: A Hunger Artist (The Tank/Flint & Tinder)

Theatre in Review: A Hunger Artist (The Tank/Flint & Tinder)

The Tank's Flint & Tinder series has given us all sorts of good things -- it has been a hive of Drama Desk Award-nominated work -- but, in my experience, it has never presented anything as hilarious and macabre as A Hunger Artist< ...More

-Theatre in Review: Animal (Atlantic Theater Stage II)

Theatre in Review: Animal (Atlantic Theater Stage II)

Rebecca Hall is an actress of such coruscating intelligence that she can even make madness seem lucid. As Rachel, who is under the care of a psychiatrist for reasons that only gradually become apparent, she manages to make clear ...More

-Theatre in Review: The End of Longing (MCC Theater at Lucille Lortel Theatre)

Theatre in Review: The End of Longing (MCC Theater at Lucille Lortel Theatre)

Theatre in Review: The Government Inspector (Red Bull Theater at The Duke on 42nd Street)
