    All About Me

    This unlikely pairing of Michael Feinstein and Dame Edna Everage resembles a TV special from the 1960s—pleasant and mildly amusing but familiar and forgettable.

    Looped

    Playwright Matthew Lombardo stretches a showbiz anecdote into a two-hour play. Fortunately, Valerie Harper delivers a tour de force performance and almost makes up for the show's thinness.

    Next Fall

    Geoffrey Nauffts' tender and compassionate play about a gay couple in conflict over religion loses intimacy in its Broadway transfer but none of its power to move.

    A Behanding in Spokane

    Christopher Walken gives a bizarre, kooky, and captivating star turn in Martin McDonagh's blood-soaked black comedy. But don't look for anything deeper than a few gory laughs.

    The Miracle Worker

    The story of teacher Annie Sullivan unlocking the deaf-and-blind young Helen Keller from a world of darkness carries an elemental power that survives even director Kate Whoriskey's troubled staging.

    Time Stands Still

    In Donald Margulies' new drama "Time Stands Still," Laura Linney proves yet again she's one of our finest actors. Even when others are speaking, we are drawn back to Linney.

    Liev Schreiber and a brilliant cast bring new life to this oft-produced Arthur Miller tragedy, staged with stunning simplicity by Gregory Mosher.

    While it's hard not to miss the romantic sweep and orchestral lushness of Harold Prince's glorious original production, Trevor Nunn's chamber version is a persuasive and entertaining account of a great American musical.

    Race

    David Mamet's new play has plenty of sharp observations on the state of race relations in contemporary America, but it's more a political tract than a compelling drama.
