Cabaret Review: Mark Nadler

Cabaret star Mark Nadler is one of the greatest showmen of our time, capable of leaping from floor to piano bench, tap-dancing madly, singing and keeping steady eye contact with the audience, all this while playing a complex passage on the piano without even glancing at the keys. However, in his lat

Theatre Review: “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf”

This revival of Edward Albee’s masterwork is perhaps the most lucid and clear production of the play I’ve ever seen, and I’m ambivalent about that. Don’t get me wrong, this is a very accomplished production of a great play, with exceptionally intelligent acting and directing choices. I enjoyed it a

Theatre Review: “Cyrano de Bergerac”

In the Roundabout revival of Cyrano de Bergerac, you can almost smell and taste the texture of mid-17th Century France, and I think that’s wonderful. I have recently become fascinated with figuring out how to express on stage the million ways in which the past is a different and alien planet from th

Don’t say Hillary Clinton has done nothing for Barack Obama’s re-election campaign. Secretary of State Clinton says she doesn’t want the deadly attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya last month to be a part of the political “blame game,” so she is taking the wrap for the lack of security.

I read Henrik Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People for the first time a couple of years ago, and it immediately became my favorite Ibsen play.
