Hurt Village

Katori Hall follows the not-so-good Mountaintop with Hurt Village. Show's uneven but there are enough good scenes and characters — and actors — to make it worthy. Plus, you can never get enough Tonya Pinkins. Full review's here.

Rutherford & Son

The Mint presents yet another great obscure yarn with Rutherford & Son, from 1912. Well worth the trip, especially for Anglophiles. Full review here.

Blood Knot

Hot on the heels of The Road to Mecca, still playing on Broadway, comes another Athol Fugard play, Blood Knot (review here). There's two more on the way, so these are good times for Fugard's NY fans.

Shatner's World

William Shatner returns to Broadway with Shatner's World -- We Just Live in It, which is to the one-man show genre what cozies are to thrillers. Full review here.

Gabe McKinley's CQ/CX dramatizes the Jayson Blair story, and makes it boring. How is that even possible? My full review's here.

The Ugly One

Marius von Mayenburg's The Ugly One is at Soho Rep. While it's not quite as great as the buzz from Germany and England would suggest, it's still an interesting work. Full review here.


Catching up with my latest reviews, we've got Rx, a spry little comedy at Primary Stages. Full appraisal here.
