    An Upwardly Mobile Musical

    Baby boomer sensibility reached an all-time level of overexposure when the drama thirtysomething aired on television from 1987 through 1991. The show followed the angst-ridden escapades of white, educated, mostly overachieving and workaholic friends....

    Resurfacing the Same Old Boulevard

    Ever since Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical theater version of the classic film Sunset Boulevard debuted in London in 1993, much of the press about the show has concerned numbers: Mounting the remake of Billy Wilder's sardonic, campy parable of Hollywoo...

    Mock Goth

    The Bleak and the Beautiful

    People in Miami often imagine Havana. Some, in their mind's eye, preserve an exile's perfect vision of the city of their sweet childhood home. Remembering recent trips to Cuba, others recall a disconcerting visual composition of the grand Havana Cath...

    The Year in Revue

    Wife's Best Friend

    As anyone who has relied on canine companionship to get through a difficult time can attest, a faithful dog more than deserves the moniker "man's best friend." Few species on Earth offer such undying devotion, unconditional love, reliable warmth, cud...
