    Do the Hustle

    If British playwright Rod Dungate's 1992 Playing by the Rules has an intelligible point of view, a consistent focus, or even a story worth telling, it's impossible to discern from its current production at Edge/Theatre on Miami Beach. Adapted for the...

    French Provincial

    David French's two-character gem Salt-Water Moon contains few dramatic revelations. Less than one-third of the way into the 90-minute one-act, the author has already played out most of his narrative hand: Boy loves girl; boy leaves girl; girl gets en...

    Clown Time Is Over

    In Herb Gardner's 1962 A Thousand Clowns, dogged nonconformist Murray Burns divides the human race into two categories: those who love pastrami and those who don't. Inspired by Murray, I'm moved to classify humanity in another way: those who love Her...
