NYMF 2007 Roundup #1
Reports on Like Love, Gemini the Musical, Austentatious, and The Yellow Wood.
The Dining Room
The Keen Company's revival of A.R. Gurney's 25-year-old masterpiece about WASP culture does the play proud.
Scarcity
Strong performances from Kristen Johnston, Michael T. Weiss, and Jesse Eisenberg anchor Lucy Thurber's flawed, yet compelling play.
Blind Mouth Singing
Jorge Ignacio CortiƱas' haunting play is given an exquisitely beautiful New York premiere by the National Asian American Theatre Company.
A Little Night Music
South Coast Rep offers a pleasant if bloodless production of Stephen Sondheim's lush musical.
100 Saints You Should Know
Kate Fodor's extremely funny and moving new play about faith gets a brilliantly acted production at Playwrights Horizons.
Kiss of the Spider Woman
Gisela Cardenas' production of Kander and Ebb's musical proves both bracing and provocative, but strips the piece of some of its well-balanced theatrical magic.
Rock Doves
Marie Jones' new play about post-"troubles" Belfast deals with interesting subject matter, but is a fairly humdrum drama.
Flags
Jane Martin's drama about the war in Iraq's effect on one American family is undermined by scattershot storytelling.
The Power of Darkness
The Mint presents a riveting revival of 19th-century Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy's controversial play.
