-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: Othello (The Public Theater at the Delacorte Theater)

Theatre in Review: First Love (Cherry Lane Theatre)

Theatre in Review: All I Want is One Night (59E59)

-Theatre in Review: Desperate Measures (New World Stages)

Theatre in Review: Desperate Measures (New World Stages)

Last season's sleeper musical has transferred from York Theatre Company to New World Stages in fine fettle, with most of its original cast and all of its laughs intact. It's hard to believe anyone ever picked up Measure for Measure ...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

-Theatre in Review: The Fourth Wall (Theater Breaking Through Barriers/A.R.T. New York Theatres)

Theatre in Review: The Fourth Wall (Theater Breaking Through Barriers/A.R.T. New York Theatres)

-Theatre in Review: The Great Leap (Atlantic Theater Stage II)

Theatre in Review: The Great Leap (Atlantic Theater Stage II)

It's good to have B. D. Wong back, again working for the Chinese Communist Party. As you surely know, the actor first came to prominence, in M. Butterfly, as the slippery female impersonator dispatched by the Mao regime to ...More

-Theatre in Review: Our Lady of 121st Street (Signature Theatre)

Theatre in Review: Our Lady of 121st Street (Signature Theatre)

If scorchingly hilarious dialogue is your thing, you can do no better than Signature's revival of this early Stephen Adly Guirgis work, which is populated by as colorful a gang of loudmouths as you are likely to meet, most of them ...More

-Theatre in Review: Exquisita Agonia (Repertorio Espanol)

Theatre in Review: Exquisita Agonia (Repertorio Espanol)

If you've been wondering where Nilo Cruz has been lately, you can drop in on Repertorio Espanol, where the Pulitzer Prize winner's latest drama is playing. The last decade or so seems to have had its effect on the playwright's style ...More

-Theatre in Review: Paradise Blue (Signature Theatre)

Theatre in Review: Paradise Blue (Signature Theatre)

Detroit and Dominique Morisseau: a pairing to look out for. In her first two plays about the Motor City, Morisseau deftly yoked her characters' conflicts to key historical stress points in the larger community. Detroit '67 is ...More

-Theatre in Review: Devil of Choice (Labyrinth Theater/Cherry Lane)

Theatre in Review: Devil of Choice (Labyrinth Theater/Cherry Lane)

I'm going to make a wild guess that Devil of Choice got picked up on the strength of two monologues: Labyrinth is very much an actor's company, and playwright Maggie Diaz Bofill has provided her leading ladies with a ...More
