Good Wife mid-season recap

As The Good Wife wrapped up its mid-season (yes, it's a thing now), I looked at the interim finale and asked some questions.

Women in drag

Thank you Allison Williams and Peter Pan to give me an excuse to do this gallery of women playing men, or women playing women pretending to be men, or Mariah Carey with glued-on goatee.

Tristan & Yseult

OMFG how good is Kneehigh's Tristan & Yseult?!? Click here for my rave.

Me, My Mouth & I

Joy Behar's solo show is exactly how you think it'd be, which isn't a bad thing per se. My review's here.

A Delicate Balance

I was lucky enough to see the previous revival of Albee's A Delicate Balance -- yeah, the one with Elaine Stritch -- but even without comparing the two, this new production doesn't look all that great. My review's here.

Allegro

I very much enjoyed John Doyle's revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Allegro at CSC -- his MO of having the cast play their own instruments works really well in this case. My review's here.

Straight White Men

Young Jean Lee's latest is another though-provoking, unexpectedly entertaining ride. My review's here.

Punk Rock

Not a teen cliché is left unturned in Simon Stephens' Punk Rock, but something tells me we haven't seen the last of this cast. My review's here.

Side Show

Side Show has attracted quite a cult following over the past 17 years, and I can't say I was a part of it. But I kinda liked the revisal that just opened on Broadway. My review's here.

The River

I love Hugh Jackman but I deeply, disliked The River, a pretentious piece of dreck that inexplicably got good reviews in London (with Dominic West instead, but the play's problems would be the same). Click here for my review.

Interview with Jill Flint

I chatted with Jill Flint about the history between her character, Lana Delaney, and Kalinda on The Good Wife. Very happy when she handed me the perfect closing line.

Radio City Christmas Spectacular

It's that time of the year again! Can I just say how bummed I was that the Christmas Spectacular dropped the "Shine a Light" number? Seriously! My review of the 2014 production is here.
