Be More Chill

"Be More Chill is the best kind of science-fiction in that it draws a direct line from the way we actually live to the fantastic world it imagines." Read Zachary Stewart's full review here.


Jonathan Cake, Teagle F. Bougere, and Kate Burton star in Coriolanus, which closes at the Delacorte Theater on August 11.

"Through startling performances and arresting design, Coriolanus captures our imaginations by preying on our worst fears about our leaders and the places they are taking us." Read Zachary Stewart's full review here.

"Fairview gloriously shows that gravity and levity can coexist, and often fuel each other." Read Zachary Stewart's full review here.

The Prom

"...The Prom has everything you want in a musical comedy: a good story, glitzy production numbers, and a happy ending. Politically incorrect and refreshingly self-effacing, it's the antidote to our ultraserious age." Read Zachary Stewart's full review here.

Toni Stone

"More than just providing illuminating theater and timely social commentary, Toni Stone gives long overdue credit to a woman who had to fight as hard as or harder than any man in her sport just to play the game she loved — and make a living at." Read Pete Hempstead's full review here.
