Reviews

Godspell
The Paper Mill Playhouse offers a wonderfully theatrical production of the oft-revived musical by Stephen Schwartz and John-Michael Tebelak.
Machiavelli
Richard Vetere's compelling new play seeks to partially rehabilitate the reputation of the man who authored the seminal political text The Prince.
Twelve Angry Men
The Roundabout Theatre Company's touring production of Reginald Rose's courtroom drama will have you perched on the edge of your seat.
The Pain and the Itch
Bruce Norris' hilarious satire of urban liberalism receives a sharply directed and brilliantly acted production at Playwrights Horizons.
NYMF 2006 Roundup #2
The ambitious Behind the Limelight sinks under its own weight, and White Noise shocks the audience.
King Lear
Robert Falls' contemporary take on Shakespeare's classic is perverse, violent, and richly realized.
NYMF 2006 Roundup #1
Desperate Measures delights, Warrior ultimately loses the battle, and Oedipus for Kids can't overcome its tragic flaws.
Rabbit Hole
The Geffen Playhouse production of David Lindsay-Abaire's multi-layered drama suffers from a kind of clinical sterility.
Richard II
Michael Cumpsty gives a strong if not entirely convincing performance in Brian Kulick's staging of Shakespeare's rarely-performed play.
Sisters
Despite a grand performance from acclaimed Irish actress Anna Manahan, Declan Hassett's solo play is a plodding and predictable bore.
