-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

-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

(20/03/2018)

-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

-Theatre in Review: Hal and Bee (59E59)

Theatre in Review: Hal and Bee (59E59)

If, as they say, old age isn't for sissies, Max Baker's play seems dedicated to the proposition that late middle age can be hell on earth. The title characters, married for decades, are slowly driving each other crazy. Hal is a ...More

-Theatre in Review: Cinderella (Theater XIV)

Theatre in Review: Cinderella (Theater XIV)

Well, it's certainly not Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella. This is the current offering of Company XIV, a dance-theatre troupe that merges ballet technique with Cirque du Soleil-style acrobatic feats, all of it filtered through ...More

-Theatre in Review: Escape to Margaritaville (Marquis Theatre)

Theatre in Review: Escape to Margaritaville (Marquis Theatre)

Tully, the hero of Escape to Margaritaville, is an entertainer at a Caribbean resort (island not named); he's an easygoing good-time guy who specializes in weeklong flings with female guests looking for some fun in the sun -- with ...More

-Theatre in Review: Later Life (Keen Company/Theatre Row)

Theatre in Review: Later Life (Keen Company/Theatre Row)

In A. R. Gurney's vast library of comedies, Later Life is an especially slippery property. It's a seemingly breezy tale, with sketch-comedy underpinnings, about a chance meeting between almost-lovers from long ago; at its ...More

-Theatre in Review: Dogs of Rwanda (Urban Stages)

Theatre in Review: Dogs of Rwanda (Urban Stages)

When men and women turn into savages, committing unthinkable acts, what happens next? How do the survivors go forward with their lives? What does forgiveness mean in this context? These questions lie at the heart of Sean Christopher ...More
