Reviews

No Child
Nilaja Sun's solo show about New York City public schools is a lesson in brilliant acting.
Tarzan
If spectacle alone were enough to make a good musical, this would be a great one. But spectacle doesn't, and this isn't.
Shining City
Conor McPherson's new play about discontented Dubliners is oddly mesmerizing.
Defying Hitler
Rupert Wickham's solo show about one man's inability to stand up to Hitler is riveting and revelatory.
A Spalding Gray Matter
Michael Brandt compares his own life to that of the late, great monologuist in this stirring tribute.
Brundibar
Tony Kushner's adaptation of the famed Czech children's opera is admirable but not especially entertaining.
The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial
Zeljko Ivanek is a superlative Captain Queeg in the current revival of Herman Wouk's military courtroom drama.
Corteo
If you take in Cirque du Soleil's latest show, it's best to forget the story and just enjoy the amazing acts.
Faith Healer
Brian Friel's quartet of monologues is well acted but doesn't constitute real drama.
Zorba
The Reprise! production of this Kander-Ebb-Stein musical boasts a uniformly outstanding cast.
