WHEN THE ACTING TURNED SERIOUS
THE WALWORTH FARCE
at St. Ann’s Warehouse

WHEN THE ACTING TURNED SERIOUS

The Walworth Farce is utterly original and nearly always unpredictable. The play is alternately funny and frightening.

A HEALTHY GARDEN
CANDIDE
at New York City Opera

A HEALTHY GARDEN

Smart casting has NYCO audiences humming the values of this production of Candide.

SOUND EXPLOSION
GOD’S EAR
at the Vineyard Theatre

SOUND EXPLOSION

Jenny Schwartz's God's Ear makes arresting use of language. It's definitely inventive, if at times irritating.

MURDER MOST FOUL
MACBETH
at the Lyceum

MURDER MOST FOUL

In its move to Broadway ( from BAM), Macbeth has lost none of its power and grandeur. If possible, Patrick Stewart and Kate Fleetwood, have gotten even better.

AN EMPTY FEELING
A CATERED AFFAIR
at the Walter Kerr

AN EMPTY FEELING

There's not much to feed on in A Catered Affair. Some delicious performances here, an atmospheric set there...but other major ingredients are missing.

THE REAL DEAL
GYPSY
at the St. James Theatre

THE REAL DEAL

This revival of Gypsy, starring Patti LuPone, is a real revelation. This is a Mama Rose, who shows her vulnerability, along with her more outrageous side-overbearing, but not bombastic.

SEEMS LIKE OLD TIMES
THE NEW CENTURY
at the Mitzi Newhouse Theatre, Lincoln Center

SEEMS LIKE OLD TIMES

Paul Rudnick misses the boat in The New Century, his new collection of one-acts. Yes, there are some witty one-liners, but the wit is based on stereotypes that should not have escaped the last century.

BIG QUESTIONS DON'T NECESSARILY YIELD BIG ANSWERS
ALMOST AN EVENING
at the Theatres at 45 Bleecker Street

BIG QUESTIONS DON'T NECESSARILY YIELD BIG ANSWERS

Ethan Coen's three one-acters, though only 80 minutes long in total, are as satisfying and thought-provoking as many three-hour dramas.

THE PAST AS PROLOGUE
SIZWE BANZI IS DEAD
at BAM -Harvey Theater

THE PAST AS PROLOGUE

Radical in its day, this 36-year-old classic from South Africa still resonates with current audiences.

IT WAS A VERY GOOD YEAR
BROADWAY BY THE YEAR 1954
at Town Hall

IT WAS A VERY GOOD YEAR

Broadway By The Year 1954 provides some very well-known musicals ( The Pajama Game, for one) as well as some lesser known gems ( Fanny and House of Flowers)-all expertly done.
