    Taking the Piss Out of Art

    "I'm basically interested in the big ones," Andres Serrano tells a group of local artists gathered to meet him at the South Florida Art Center on Lincoln Road. "Life, death, and everything in between." Serrano visited Miami recently to attend the...

    Don't Fear the Reaper

    Like the character Timothy in Neil's Garden, an exceptionally well-acted, well-directed world premiere now at Area Stage on Miami Beach, I am not reasonable about death. Just the mention of it causes me to knock on wood. Death is not to be thought ab...

    The Sybil Syndrome

    Lily Tomlin has done it. John Leguizamo, Sherry Glaser, Danny Hoch, Eric Bogosian, Claudia Shear, and a host of other names I could drop may be doing it even as you read this: that is, presenting an evening of theater by embodying an array of charact...

    New Artists on the Block

    The 1994-95 exhibition season has offered a number of group shows of works by local artists. These demonstrations of support have called upon a handful of artists who seem, for the moment at least, to top every curator's list. With all due respect to...

    Unbearable Liteness of Being

    South Florida is not a region that takes many theatrical risks. A quick study of the current season's lineup for theaters from Palm Beach to Miami makes one thing perfectly clear: Reluctant to strain audience loyalty by introducing what hasn't passed...

    The Cat's Pajamas

    The Tennessee Williams-style Southern family, at its liquor-soaked, lust-ridden, and venal best, rises again in Kendall this month in a spirited production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Actors' Playhouse presents Williams's modern classic in all its come...

    Word Processor

    Like many artists educated in Cuba who have moved to Miami over the past few years, Consuelo Castaneda speaks only a little English, communicating with Anglos through a translator. The clever, slickly executed paintings in To Be Bilingual, Castaneda'...

    Divine Intervention

    Angels in America has been hailed as vast, miraculous, and sweeping, the broadest, deepest, most searching American play of our time. Whether such superlatives are justified or not remains to be determined, but one thing is certain -- the two-part dr...

    Beuys Will Be Beuys

    Map of the Heart

    The Pope Theatre Company's production of Steven Dietz's Lonely Planet took me by surprise. Partway through the two-character play I found myself squirming in my seat, consulting my watch, and wishing something A anything A would happen in the long-wi...

    When Form Precedes Function

    As a sculptural element, wood is warm and inviting to the touch. Humble yet elegant, naturally marked by time, wood sculpture connotes a long-standing tradition of noble craftsmanship. But sculptor Ingrid Hartlieb often employs wood to recall an arch...

    Sweet Smell of Excess

    Playwright Jeffrey Sweet gives a great lecture. I heard him speak when he was in town recently to lead a playwrighting workshop, and I filled my notebook with useful maxims and seasoned insights provided by this articulate theater professional. He po...

    To Live and Cry in L.A.

    Being a teenager is hard enough. What if you also happen to be gay and living in Middle America? If you have any survival instincts at all, you head for either coast as soon as you can. That's exactly what happens with the characters in the monologue...

    Fire Escape

    The Pope Theatre Company's saucy production of Eric Overmyer's Dark Rapture begins with a killer scene that could turn the most hard-core devotee of movies and TV toward the pleasures of live theater. Two men collide at the edges of a cataclysmic fir...
