Theatre in Review: Returning to Reims (Schaubühne Berlin/St. Ann's Warehouse)

Theatre in Review: In the Body of the World (Manhattan Theatre Club/City Center Stage I)

Theatre in Review: He Brought Her Heart Back in a Box (Theatre for a New Audience)

After a silence of ten years, Adrienne Kennedy has returned with this brief, elliptical, haunting play, a romance that opens a window on a complex and treacherous past. Actually, "play" is something of a misnomer: He Brought ...More
