Once upon a time, a band from Egypt accidentally visited a small town in Israel. Although you may not have heard about it, you can now see a musical about it on Broadway. “The Band’s Visit,” music and lyrics by David Yazbek and book by Itamar Moses, is directed by David Cromer and opened at […]
It is easy to criticize one-man shows, especially ones that claim to be educational. However, “Latin History for Morons” is certainly more entertaining that any lecture or lesson you’ve ever attended before. John Leguizamo’s show at Studio 54 was inspired his son being bullied and calling racial slurs. In response, Leguizamo started researching Latino history in […]

In the quickly-cancelled but much beloved TV show “Smash” Uma Thurman played Rebecca Duvall, a famous movie actress who was making a Broadway debut. Her casting was a ploy by the producers to sell more tickets, even though they knew she was not as talented or qualified as the original stage actress they planned to […]
Upon walking into the new production of “Once on this Island,” which opened on Sunday at the Circle in the Square Theatre, you are greeted by trash, old tee-shirts hanging on the walls, a small pool of water leading offstage, a live chicken and goat, and the cast meandering around the stage, which is completely […]
I am of the generation that does not remember a world before Spongebob. Therefore I was extremely skeptical when I heard that Tina Landau was going to adapt the beloved anthropomorphic sea sponge into a Broadway musical. Like many, I had high expectations and was expecting to be disappointed. To quote a very emotional child […]
If you’re my age, vacationing is out of the question, traveling is for my rich white friends who took a break after college to “find themselves.” As a millennial I truly believe the baby boomers just absolutely destroyed the economy and we are left to scramble and attempt to thrive in what is now a […]
There’s something about the 90s that just won’t go away, and maybe we never want them to. The “Cruel Intentions” musical is now in its third incarnation, this time downtown in the Village at (le) poisson rouge. It opened on Monday, December 11th in a limited engagement running through early 2018. The musical is based […]
Another apocalyptic week in politics, another apocalyptic play on Broadway. “The Children” by Lucy Kirkwood and directed by James Macdonald opened this Tuesday at Friedman Theatre. Among the other dystopias, political rants, and apocalyptic pieces this season, “The Children” seems unremarkable, just another piece that makes the audience think of the potentially not-too-far-off doom awaiting […]
Adrienne Kennedy’s new play at Theater For a New Audience is a 45 minute experience unlike anything you have ever witnessed before. It is somewhere between a wonderful dream and a terrifying nightmare, a reverie and a fantasia, a set of monologues and a lyric poem; it is equal parts tragic and beautiful. Kennedy’s plays […]
Back in 2004, a film came out that defined a generation; “Mean Girls” spoke to teenagers dealing with high school drama and gave them a hilarious lexicon to describe their plight. For those like me, “Mean Girls” was the most accurate expression of the zeitgeist. As an avid lover of the film and also a […]
While watching Joe Mantello’s production at the Golden Theater, it comes as no surprise that “Three Tall Women” won Edward Albee his final Pulitzer Prize. Certainly the play itself — and this production in particular — is prize-worthy. Speaking of prizes, because the play’s premiere was Off-Broadway back in 1994, this production marks the first time “Three Tall Women” […]
Contrary to popular belief, deafness is not a curse, it is not the end of the world, it is not something that necessarily needs to be cured. In fact, many deaf people do not consider themselves disabled, but instead classify themselves as belonging to a linguistic community. If you only speak Albanian, being in a […]
A revival of Kenneth Lonergan’s “Lobby Hero” marks the inaugural production of Second Stage’s Broadway season at the newly renovated Helen Hayes Theatre — and what a debut. Although the play is from 2001, when it premiered off-Broadway, nothing about the piece feels dated. In fact, this revival proves how little has changed in these seventeen years. […]
“Mamma Mia.” “Jersey Boys.” “American Idiot.” “On Your Feet.” “Beautiful.” (Not to mention, the upcoming Donna Summer musical, “Summer”). You know the type: a jukebox musical. When reading the previous titles and the phrase “jukebox musical” you either groaned and or cheered. This subgenre of musical theater is incredibly polarizing, people either love them or […]
Joshua Harmon, who most recently captured the lonely gay experience in “Significant Other” now takes on the liberal obsession with student body diversity in his new play, “Admissions” at Lincoln Center. For anyone who has ever applied to a school or even seen one of those admissions brochures, this play will bring back some haunting […]
“King Lear” is one of those Shakespeare plays that you have probably seen too many times, right up there with “Macbeth” and “Hamlet.” What makes “King Lear” loveable for performers and audience members alike is its iconic moments: Lear dividing his kingdom, the massive storm, the blinding of Gloucester, the death of the sisters, and […]
After “Ruined,” “The Trip to Bountiful,” “Romeo and Juliet” and last season’s “A Doll’s House, Part 2,” (not to mention three Tony nominations) the time has finally come for Condola Rashad to take center stage, to be a leading lady, to have all eyes on her. Broadway has been waiting far too long for this […]
The Drama Desk Awards will be held at Town Hall on June 3rd, hosted by Michael Urie. The awards honor both Broadway and Off-Broadway productions performed throughout the season. This year Spongebob Squarepants, Mean Girls, and Carousel lead with the most nominations. Here is the complete list of nominations: Outstanding Play Admissions Mary Jane Miles […]
