Do You Feel Anger?

"Now playing at Vineyard Theatre, this comedy wrings laughter out of a dismal situation — one that, despite [playwright Mara] Nelson-Greenberg's heightened style, we recognize as our own. ... Through bold performances and specific design, director Margot Bordelon maintains the comical tone of Nelson-Greenberg's script without sacrificing any of its seriousness."

Kinky Boots
Closes April 7!

"If your preferred Broadway experience is all about cocktails and drag queens, Kinky Boots will definitely fit the bill. But this show has a much wider appeal. Indeed, this high-energy spectacle with a heart is musical comedy at its finest." Read Zachary Stewart's full review here.


The Lehman Trilogy

"This grand mythology of banking might seem ridiculous if not for the steady and deceptively simple direction of Sam Mendes, who creates a three-hour-20-minute spectacle with just three performers wearing variations on the same costume. ... The Lehman Trilogy captures the splendor of the American dream; and like all good dreams, it ends with a rude awakening." Read Zachary Stewart's full review here.


The Tragedy of Julius Caesar

"It's fitting that [director Shana] Cooper leaves us with the image of the whole cast still marching and fighting in place, even after many of the major characters have died. As surely Shakespeare himself knew, and as Cooper's production evokes with raging immediacy and bleak poetry, history marches on, as does human folly." Ready Kenji Fujishima's full review here.


What the Constitution Means to Me

"Taking the form of a civics lecture, it is the surprise thriller of the season. ... [Playwright Heidi] Schreck makes a compelling argument that no governing document will ever be a panacea for society's ills, and that we will always have to depend on the good faith (or contend with the lack thereof) of the people charged with interpreting that document. That makes What the Constitution Means to Me a rallying cry for active participation in our democracy, which doesn't end at the ballot box." Read Zachary Stewart's full review here.
