Reviews

Get Your War On
The Rude Mechs' adaptation of David Rees' popular internet cartoon is sharp, ironic, and often hilarious.
The Circle
Mark Lamos directs an impeccable production of
W. Somerset Maugham's play about the clash between passion and practicality.
The Scene
Tony Shalhoub is mesmerizing in Theresa Rebeck's often funny but ultimately shallow play about discontented New Yorkers.
Blackout
A very fine cast brings depth to Michael Walker's overwritten and underdeveloped play about six New Yorkers in crisis.
The Cherry Orchard
Kate Burton is a revelation in Nicholas Martin's gem-like production of the classic Chekhov drama.
13
Jason Robert Brown's exuberant musical about the trials of adolescence is likely to score big with a young audience.
The Country Wife
This wonderfuly bawdy Restoration comedy receives an estimable new production.
The Germans in Paris
Jonathan Leaf's play about Karl Marx, Heinrich Heine, and Richard Wagner has its basis in reality, but doesn't feel remotely real.
The Rapture Project
Great Small Works' latest puppet extravaganza is an earnest, yet imperfectly realized satire about religious fundamentalism.
October 1962
D.W. Gregory's dysfunctional family drama has impact but little inspiration.
