    Enron

    Lucy Prebble's new play is like a big, shiny, beautifully wrapped package that once eagerly ripped open reveals a horde of Styrofoam peanuts through which you search vainly for the anticipated present.

    Fences

    Denzel Washington is magnificent in the role indelibly created by James Earl Jones, and the astonishing Viola Davis matches him every step of the way. It's a deeply moving, hugely satisfying evening of theater.

    Promises, Promises

    Inappropriate stars and hokey direction pretty much do in this revival of pop legend Burt Bacharach's only foray into musical theater.

    Sondheim on Sondheim

    Who wouldn't want to spend an evening with Broadway's musical-theater Shakespeare discussing his work and dishing about his experiences?

    Though the book is skeletal, this loud and angry rock opera from Green Day breaks all the Broadway rules to create a moving portrait of rebels without causes and no place to go.

    Million Dollar Quartet

    There’s a whole lotta shakin’ goin’ on in Broadway’s latest jukebox musical, but the book ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog.

    This adaptation of Charles Addams' iconic cartoons is a musical all dressed up with no place to go.

    Lend Me a Tenor

    Stanley Tucci's riotous staging of Ken Ludwig's "Lend Me a Tenor" provides an evening full of belly laughs, slapstick action, and projectiles aimed into the orchestra seats.

    Red

    There's barely a cliché left unturned in John Logan's "Red," a two-hander about the late-in-life creative struggles of artist Mark Rothko, arriving direct from London's Donmar Warehouse.

    Come Fly Away

    Twyla Tharp channels the spirit of Sinatra in this dreamy, sexy romp. There's no plot, but with dancing like this, who cares?
