Extraordinary art must be tamed.

Simon Grindberg is the world’s most illustrious children’s book writer and illustrator, but his next masterpiece is a decade overdue. Peter Chandler is a starving artist with unparalleled potential, but he doesn’t yet know his own value. The two men are thrown together by Clair Forlorni, an ambitious editor who hopes Peter’s youthful exuberance can unleash Simon’s aging genius for one final story. But creativity comes at a cost.

Don’t miss this wondrous, hopeful and heartbreaking new play where imagination runs wild.

Rulfo: Immortal Scribe of the Dead

We ourselves neglected to note his passing.

Against the grain of the baroque, overwrought style that had seemed to define Latin American literature, each word of Juan Rulfo’s fiction emerges as if extracted from the soil, leaving readers to apprehend what is held back, to divine the vast unspoken world of extinction, the final silence that ...

Engaging revival of Terence McNally’s 1971 near-monologue comedic memory rant of “Where Has Tommy Flowers Gone.” David Gow is charismatic as the dreamer & schemer in a time of great flux, one in a long line of fast-talking, sex-crazed, man-child rebels without a cause. Several set pieces stand out including Gow imagining himself as a child meeting James Dean, where Gow plays Dean to a tee (pun intended), and a stunningly funny and pathos-filled daydream where he plays Marilyn Monroe, the happy birthday Mr President boozy and insecure but still vivacious Marilyn. #offbroadway #theater

Clothes That Don’t Need You

We were torn when we saw the show in late Spring. Humor, brazen reconstruction, at times haunting, close to the melancholy that David Salle refers to in his appreciative essay. But on reading this piece I may have to reconsider my initial overall nonplussed reaction. A memory-based rethink could be in order.

Walking mesmerized through the Rei Kawakubo retrospective at the Metropolitan Museum was the closest I’ve come since to the feeling of Noh theater. Without always understanding what I was looking at, I was gripped by the kind of melancholy that seems to accompany the toughest, most searching and dem...

Wonder Woman: The Weird, True Story

Wonder Woman was an explicitly feminist creation. Yet younger generations of feminists have lacked an awareness of the degree to which this is so. So Wonder Woman is also the symbol of a culture-wide amnesia…

FROM 2ND PARAGRAPH But I had to try. If what I came to do worked out as great and glorious as the Russian Revolution once purported itself, our company would have replanted the egalitarian hammer and sickle symbol through the misplaced ideal of capitalism from the bottom up. Our messenger service would have rethread the vision on economic principle, so to speak. If trickle down wasn’t dammed up and I wasn’t just meant to hide here from the vanguard of the proletariat, Srilenko. … SECOND ROY COHN TOWNHOUSE DOORSTEP READING https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VuzKjEMAsc4&list=PLE0Qi3hKQZeaxRBl-CgBu3omBfeOdh_kG&index=4
