Reviews

Grendel
Eric Owens gives a heroic performance in Julie Taymor's visually stunning but surprisingly unpoetic opera.
DruidSynge
Tony Award winners Garry Hynes and Marie Mullen return to NY for this must-see marathon of the works of playwright John Millington Synge.
Room Service
Dan Wackerman's adroit revival of this 1937 farce is a powerful antidote for depression.
The Insomnia Play and The Calamity of Kat Kat and Willie
Though these two new plays are set in apartments, they're anything but standard kitchen-sink dramas.
Zero Hour
Jim Brochu's entertaining solo show is a warts-and-all portrait of the late, great Zero Mostel.
The Cherry Orchard
Laila Robins gives a superlative performance in the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey's excellent production of Chekhov's classic drama.
River Deep, A Tribute to Tina Turner
This musical-cum-dance piece doesn't give audiences enough to fully appreciate the pop legend's unusual life.
School of the Americas
José Rivera's new play about Che Guevara is little more than a pedestrian polemic.
The Rink
The Cape Playhouse's production of the 1984 Kander-Ebb-McNally musical is fresh and arresting.
Geppetto & Son
This new musical based on Pinocchio is too often as wooden as its central character.
