Scenes from a Marriage

As much as I value the work of directors, especially Ivo van Hove's, I think his concept for the new Scenes from a Marriage at NYTW kind of stifles the show. My review's here.

The Money Shot

Neil LaBute's new play is a bit of a red herring: While set in Hollywood, it's not about Hollywood. Rather, it skewers today's moral and intellectual relativism. My review's here.

The Valley of Astonishment

Peter Brook and Marie-Hélène Estienne's The Valley of Astonishment is beautiful, sensitive, well-crafted … and it leaves you wondering "So what?" My review's here.

Love Letters

A. R. Gurney's Love Letters returns to Broadway with a cavalcade of stars. First off the gates were Brian Dennehy and Mia Farrow, so that's who I reviewed.

Rock Bottom

I've seen Bridget Everett many. many times at this point, but she still surprises me. Her new show, Rock Bottom, is more of the same yet different. Oh heck, just go see it. But first, read my review.

The Fatal Weakness

The Mint revives George Kelly's dramedy The Fatal Weakness. (Feels weird to use a word like "dramedy" for a 1947 play but there you go...) My review's here.

Mighty Real

Mighty Real is the kind of show that's not great but super-fun -- and as you may gather from the title, it is about Sylvester. Wall-to-wall live disco? I never say no. My review's here.

Dry Land

Totally bought Ruby Rae Spiegel's first full-length play, Dry Land, brought to us by the equally vital company Colt Coeur. Seating's limited so act fast! My review's here.
