Lonely Planet

I reviewed the Keen Company's revival of Steven Dietz's two-hander Lonely Planet for the Times. What fun it is to see Arnie Burton and Matt McGrath up front rather than (stealing the spotlight) in the ensemble. Click here.

/peh-LO-tah/

I reviewed Marc Bamuthi Joseph's dance-theater piece /peh-LO-tah/ at BAM for the Times (click here).  It's the kind of show that allows me to mention Zidane and Milton Friedman in the same review — a first for me!

Syncing Ink

Amazingly, I managed to review a hip-hop show without mentioning the H word — the genre is healthy and varied enough now that you don't have to measure everything by the one yardstick. Click here for Syncing Ink.

Time and the Conways

Extra! Extra! My review of the Roundabout's revival of Time and the Conways is out in Newsday. Click here for the goods. Hint: I really liked that show.

Interview with Olivier Py

The French writer-director-actor Olivier Py, who also happens to run the Avignon Festival, is in town with his alter ego, Miss Knife, and I got to talk to him after the show. Click here for the piece.

One Night Only (running as long as we can)

It's great to see the WP Theater expand the scope of its offerings into dance-theater, and I reviewed the show by Monica Bill Barnes & Company for the Times. Thataway!

Interview with Mikaela Shiffrin

So psyched to talk to one of the most dominant American athletes that most Americans haven't heard of! My New York Times interview with ski champ Mikaela Shiffrin is now online.

Stairway to Stardom

My latest review for the New York Times is the dance-theater piece Stairway to Stardom, at HERE. Mixed feelings — but it sure looks great!
