"[Dave] Malloy's Moby-Dick...runs a whopping three hours and 25 minutes — 205 riveting, infuriating, audacious minutes that simultaneously adapt the [Herman] Melville novel as a musical, recast the author's intentions in contemporary America, and create a new version of the art form: the musical as an amusement park ride."

"[Christopher] Shinn has done a surprisingly excellent job of putting [Ödön von] Horváth's words into contemporary English while maintaining the prewar tone of the piece... [Director Richard] Jones proved his talent for expressionist spectacle in The Hairy Ape, which played the Armory in 2017. This production is a worthy successor."

"I still love Love, Actually, but I laughed all the way through this riotous send-up that proves love actually is all around — and it's f-n ridiculous." Read Zachary Stewart's full review here.


Labhaoise Magee stars in Pumpgirl, running through January 12 at Irish Repertory Theatre.

"[Director] Nicola Murphy revives the play with a no-frills production.... And with three outstanding performances supporting its rich, expressive language, it's easy to understand why this was a title that emerged from the heap." Read Hayley Levitt's full review here.

The Sound Inside

"I love everything about it: the sparseness of [Adam] Rapp's writing, the stark austerity of director David Cromer's staging, the elegant and commanding performances by Mary-Louise Parker and Will Hochman." Read David Gordon's full review here.
