Reviews

Fables de La Fontaine
Robert Wilson's visually stunning adaptation of the classic French fairy tales marks a return to the height of his considerable powers.
Gypsy
Patti LuPone gives the finest performance of her career as Mama Rose in the splendid revival of this classic musical.
Absinthe / La Vie
These two circus-like shows at the Spiegeltent provide many breathtaking moments, but both could use some trimming.
Xanadu
The deservedly maligned 1980 movie musical has been transformed into a confection that will leave Greek muses and audience members alike smiling.
Can-Can
The Pasadena Playhouse offers a first-rate and somewhat rewritten version of Cole Porter's 1955 musical set in Paris.
The/King/Operetta
Waterwell's satiric take on the life of the civil rights leader starts off great and then fails to live up to its promise.
Morning Star
Sylvia Regan's 1940 play about a Jewish family in New York is too soap opera-like to be fully satisfying.
Guilty
Indiscretions and betrayals amongst upper class New Yorkers abound in Nancy Manocherian's tedious dark comedy.
Mirror of the Invisible World
Mary Zimmerman revisits her 1996 work based on a Persian poem with very welcome results.
Sea of Fools
The Purple Rose Theatre's first-rate production of Matt Letscher's farce about Hollywood will leave you laughing.
