    A Wake-Up Curtain Call - A theater critic's farewell

    [Exit, pursued by a bear] -- The Winter's Tale, William Shakespeare Being a theater critic is one of the best jobs ever invented, so it is with mixed emotions that I'm leaving behind my duties at New Times to pursue new adventures in Washington,...

    Blah, Blah, Blah - Tom Tom on a Rooftop

    The most memorable detail in Tom Tom on a Rooftop, Daniel Keough's new play now receiving its East Coast premiere in Hollywood, is a piece of the set. The feeble comedy takes place entirely on the tarpaper roof of a modest apartment building, where, ...

    Sandwiched Between Here and There - Medianoche (Midnight Sandwich)

    Of all the versions of Cuba that exist, few are as fragmented or elusive as those that live in the memory of exiles. Anyone who left the island before his or her own memories really began or grew up in the United States with exile parents knows stori...

    Vital Forces - A Bicycle Country

    By sheer coincidence, A Bicycle Country, Nilo Cruz's bewitching play about the fate of three balseros, is premiering against the backdrop of the political drama of the young rafter Elian Gonzalez. Or is it coincidence? If six-year-old Elian hadn't be...

    The Architecture of Control - Glexis Novoa's "Recent Works"

    In totalitarian societies terror is the instrument to force submission, and the threat of terror is often marked on the very land itself. Human sovereignty, a basic political right, is seized and annihilated by an bermensch utopia. Putting ideology ...

    It's Too Easy - Buddy -- The Buddy Holly Story

    The single poignant moment in Buddy -- The Buddy Holly Story depicts an imperiously fragile moment of rock and roll history, the one in which protorocker Buddy Holly wrote the song "Everyday." Not the best or the most popular of Holly's work, the t...

    Wrong Way to Remember - The Gathering

    Like most people at a recent performance of Arje Shaw's powerful work The Gathering, I had tears in my eyes by the end of the two-hour drama. And like many around me, I suspect, I found the plight of Gabe, the Holocaust survivor at its center, imperi...

    Ich Bin Ein Camera - I Am a Camera

    The seedy Berlin of Kander and Ebb's Cabaret is so familiar to us that to encounter the sedate world of John Van Druten's I Am a Camera is something of a shock. Instead of the Kit Kat Club, we get Christopher Isherwood's tiny apartment; in place of g...

    Guerrilla War Between the Sexes - Closer

    I dare anyone who thinks movies and television come near to providing the thrill of top-drawer live theater to go see Closer, and not just because actress Jen Ryan spends part of Act Two wearing little more than a see-through mesh top. You can observ...

    Dusty Chalk - The Chalk Garden,

    Tim Bennett's set -- a sitting room in an English manor, dappled with gorgeous pink light and a dozen vases of cut flowers, opening out on to a rose-strewn garden -- is so inviting that I wanted to walk up onstage and move in. That's the only pos...

    Strong Star, Tired Message - Out of the Box

    Karen Stephens is such an appealing performer that I wish her one-person show were as compelling as she is. Called Out of the Box, the show is billed as a multimedia event that looks at "societal and racial parameters through the life experiences of ...

    Picture Memory City - "Habana, Mayo 1997"

    Havana. A magical place built by the Spanish, coveted by the English, worshiped by the Americans, and nearly destroyed by the Cubans, the city has become a de rigueur stop for sex-hungry Europeans and cheap Latin-American tourists. Lately one finds t...

    Two Colors of the Rainbow - Finian's Rainbow

    In these post-Sondheim, pro-revival days, it's sometimes difficult to find the why and wherefore of the Broadway musical. On the one hand, Times Square overflows with new productions of Grease and Saturday Night Fever and the self-perpetuating Cats, ...

    Scientists Overboard - Great Men of Science, Nos. 21 & 22

    Glen Berger's new play, Great Men of Science, Nos. 21 & 22, is a disaster of such epic proportions it practically begs comparison to the Titanic and the Hindenberg. Indeed, ten minutes after it leaves port, so to speak, this world premiere by the aut...

    Violence in the Art Projects - Elizabeth Withstandley's "Candy Coated"

    Locust Projects is located between the Design District and the so-called Media-Production-Entertainment District. It's a project to house creativity, not people. A trio of young local artists formed LP, as they refer to it, and turned a crackhouse in...

    Women on the Verge - Sophie, Totie, & Belle

    The Art of Digging It - Paintings by Lynne Golob Gelfman

    As you enter the Fredric Snitzer Gallery and begin looking at the pieces counterclockwise from the door, colors seem to drift past, from moss green to sanded-wood, from red to black. The abstract paintings of Lynne Golob Gelfman have an unusual expre...
