    Mamet's Revenge - Peel back the slapstick veneer and it's dark in there

    Gay marriage is at the top of the news these days, so the Trap Door Theatre's decision to produce David Mamet's bitter comedy Boston Marriage could not be more timely. Mamet's tale is a faux-Victorian intrigue about two nineteenth-century lesbians wh...

    The Dark Side of Jolson - Like the man himself, this stylish musical is irresistible despite its repulsive subject

    On the face of it, Jolson and Company, the latest biographical musical presented by the Coconut Grove Playhouse, should be dead on arrival. Its subject, Al Jolson, became a star before World War I, died more than a half-century ago, and hardly regist...

    Arte Americano - Fleeing the New York art scene, an expatriate painter finds himself right back in gringolandia

    Ars longa, vita brevis, goes the old Roman saying, and it remains true today. While decades and centuries come and go, art endures. The tumult of prerevolutionary Russia is by now a dim memory, but Chekhov's plays remain to recall the era. So it is w...

    With an Oink-Oink Here and an Oink-Oink There - A piggish visitor upsets the delicate balance on an Ontario farm, and out of the confusion comes theatrical truth

    Watching Florida Stage's new production of The Drawer Boy is a bit like observing a bumblebee in flight. Based on the evidence, it shouldn't fly, but there it goes. Michael Healey's 1999 script is riddled with implausibilities and secondhand ideas. N...
