A Doll's House

I'd never have thought A Doll's House could be suspenseful but Carrie Cracknell's production is almost Hitchcockian -- without losing an ounce of emotional power. My admiring review's here.

London Wall

The Mint dug up a good one with John van Druten's London Wall, and gives it a worthy production. My review's here.

Kung Fu

David Henry Hwang's Bruce Lee bioplay Kung Fu misses the mark. Thataway for my review.

My Mother Has Four Noses

People were sniffling at Bridges of Madison County, but tears were really pouring at My Mother Has Four Noses, a new musical in which Jonatha Brooke talks/sings about her relationship with her dementia-afflicted mom. My review's here.

After Midnight redux

It was a pleasure to return to After Midnight to check out new featured singer k.d. lang. The show still delivers, and so does she. Thataway for my review.

Bronx Bombers

I liked Bronx Bombers well enough off-Broadway, or at least I tolerated it. But the transfer to a bigger house didn't do the show any favors. Click here for my review of this unabashed paean to the Yankees.

Almost, Maine

Why sniff at Almost, Maine? Because it's popular in high schools? That's not a very good reason, and I for one had a nifty time at the Transport Group's revival. My review's here.

I Call My Brothers

Catching up with the cross-posting of reviews from this week (this is what happens when you go off the grid in Utah). I'd liked Jonas Hassen Khemiri's Invasion! but I was underwhelmed by his new one, I Call My Brothers. My lukewarm review's here.
