    Shtick in the Mud

    When you can't figure out which direction the stock market will head or which nation isn't complying with nuclear disarmament, it's soothing to know that at least somewhere on the television dial things remain constant: Mary Richards will never find ...

    To borrow a line from the great soul singer Sam Cooke, I don't know much about history, but I do know that Benedict Arnold turned traitor during the Revolutionary War. In the world premiere of Benedict Arnold, now at Palm Beach's Florida Stage (forme...

    Defense Mechanism

    Some plays transport you back through time by parading actresses in hoop skirts across the stage or bathing the scenery in the simulated flicker of gas lamps, but Clarence Darrow, now at Coral Gables's New Theatre, accomplishes the feat by presenting...

    Private Plays, Public Access

    During the intermission of Private Lives, being staged by downtown Miami's Ramsay-Hutchison Players, a dance professor from the New World School of the Arts asked me if I review college theater. I said no and went on to explain that I am reluctant to...

    The Road Not Taken

    Play It as It Lays

    Despite the weekend's steady rain, more than 50 people join me as I wade into the Hollywood Boulevard Theatre on a recent Sunday night. After reaching into soaked pockets and purchasing five-dollar tickets, we quickly fill up the rows of the tiny sto...

    Chairman of the Boards

    Living up to his reputation as a consummate gentleman, Bill Hindman asks for permission to loosen his tie as he settles into our booth at a little out-of-the-way Chinese restaurant near Dadeland. I find it amazing he is even wearing a tie during this...

    If the Shoe Fits

    When High Button Shoes premiered on Broadway in 1947, its name and 1913 setting conjured nostalgic images of more carefree days. Its title still brings to mind visions of a bygone era, and one yearns for the golden age of musical comedy when boy wooe...

    Prophet and Loss

    The Little Shop That Could

    A confession: Before the curtain goes up on any musical production, I check out the number of songs in each act; if the show turns out to be a turkey I can start the countdown till the final curtain. During the intermission to Little Shop of Horrors,...

    When the Art Starts

    Shake and Not Stirred
