More streaming science fiction

My science-fiction column is back with another selection of five wildly diverse under-the-radar movies. Thataway for the goods.

Hound Dog

Ars Nova and PlayCo are jointly presenting this play by Melis Aker, which unfortunately I did not care much for. My underwhelmed review can be found here.

Chushingura — 47 Ronin

The least I can say for this show is that there's nothing else like it on NYC stages right now: I salute the attempt to tell this centuries-old story in a theatrical manner! Click here for my review.

Everything's Fine

I wrote about Douglas McGrath's solo show, in which he also stars, for the Times. Thataway for the review.

Interview with Lars Eidinger

I'm on a roll with the great people to interview: After Kate Nash, I met with Lars Eidinger. Definitely not the same vibe and yet kinda — two people who are very good at what they do, and do it in their own idiosyncratic manner. Click here for my story.

Interview with Kate Nash

Kate Nash is back…with an Off Broadway musical! I got to meet one of my favorite popsters of the past 15 years and it's all there (with fab photos, too).

A chat with Melissa Etheridge and Jill Sobule

Last week I had breakfast with Melissa Etheridge and Jill Sobule. We talked about their new Off Broadway shows, life, music, football. It was great fun. Click here for the convo.

I reviewed Carlota Pereda's debut feature, Piggy, for the Times. Spoiler alert: I liked it. Click here for the Critic's Pick.
