    The Assistant

    The cast works hard to add character dimension in this too-straightforward telling of Bernard Malamud's story.

  • Reviews

    Pieces

    The tension peters out fast in this story of two spooky little orphans and their hapless overseer, but the performances bring the two kids vividly to life.

    Two Unrelated Plays by David Mamet

    David Mamet forsakes profanity to mine laughs in ancient Rome and twist words at a modern school. The results are hilarious.

  • Reviews

    The Turn of the Screw

    The advent of electricity burned off the dark corners, the shadowy objects, and the possibility of murky mysteries.

  • Reviews

    No Child...

    WhileNo Child...is certainly an indictment of the New York public education system, never was an indictment so entertaining.

  • Reviews

    Krankenhaus Blues

    Offbeat observations and lively dialogue, aided by solid performances, bring the characters to life even though the script never ignites any real dramatic fire.

  • Reviews

    Picking Up the Baby

    This elegant, lean production sparkles with sensitive writing, vivid acting, intermittently engaging musical segments, and an appealing shape.

  • Reviews

    Party Time

    Though brief -- running under 60 minutes --Party Timepacks more of an emotional and intellectual punch than many plays running two or three times as long.

  • Reviews

    Bridge & Tunnel

    Every detail of the Broadway production, crisply directed by Taccone, is expertly handled.

    Darkling

    The best that can be said aboutDarklingis that it makes one want to read the 2001 Pushcart Prize-nominated book.
