THE TALE BEHIND THE TAIL
THE LITTLE MERMAID
at the Lunt-Fontanne Theater

THE TALE BEHIND THE TAIL

This stage adaptation of Disney's The Little Mermaid falls all over the place. The cast may be talented but they're overshadowed by bad design, generic choreography and confusing direction

SOUNDS OF SILENCE
COME BACK, LITTLE SHEBA
at the Biltmore Theatre

SOUNDS OF SILENCE

William Inge's Come Back Little Sheba is given a low-key, but effective revival. There's a dignity to this tale of lives led in quiet desperation. Could this be the start of an Inge revival?

SOUND FAMILIAR?
NOVEMBER
at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre

SOUND FAMILIAR?

David Mamet's November is more like a two-hour sitcom than a political satire. And there's really nothing wrong with that.

...ARE HERE AGAIN
HAPPY DAYS
at BAM Harvey Theater

...ARE HERE AGAIN

Director Deborah Warner and actress Fiona Shaw have come up with a dazzling production of Beckett's Happy Days. Relevant for twenty-first century audiences, while still preserving the grandeur of this classic work.

MAKE 'EM LAUGH
THE 39 STEPS
at the American Airlines Theater

MAKE 'EM LAUGH

The 39 Steps is fun, fast-moving and inventive. Just don't expect Hitchcockian suspense in the bargain.

APOCALYPSE NOW
HAPPY DAYS
at BAM Harvey Theater

APOCALYPSE NOW

Beckett's darkly funny Happy Days is given a tremendous production at BAM's Harvey Theater. Credit director Deborah Warner and actress Fiona Shaw, for that bit of good news.

A MERE TRIFLE
IS HE DEAD?
A MERE TRIFLE

Is He Dead? should better have stayed undisturbed. The plot reads like a series of rejected comedy sketches.

UNSEEN FORCES
BECKETT SHORTS
at the New York Theatre Workshop

UNSEEN FORCES

Beckett Shorts is a high-art quartet of the playwright's short pieces. The production is tied to Mikhail Baryshnikov grace and presence.

BLOOD SIMPLE
SWEENEY TODD: THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET
at movie houses across the country

BLOOD SIMPLE

This is a Sweeney Todd, informed by a strong central vision, that is more Tim Burton than Stephen Sondheim. Attend this tale with that fact in mind.

THE HOMECOMING
at the Cort Theatre

ONE BIG HAPPY FAMILY...NOT

In this violent and slaughter-filled world, Harold Pinter's The Homecoming still has the power to shock
