    Three Pianos

    While this unique combination of frat party and musical history lesson is sometimes entertaining and informative, it's way too loosey-goosey to be ultimately satisfying. Plenty of free booze, though.

    An Error of the Moon

    Historical drama becomes lurid soap opera in Luigi Creatore's "speculation" on the brothers Booth.

    It's Always Right Now, Until It's Later

    Daniel Kitson's impeccably self-aware and comic telling of two intersecting tales seems quotidian yet represents a radical paradigm shift in how we view life itself.

    Quartermaine's Terms

    Williamstown Theatre Festival presents a vibrant production about a nonentity disconnected from life.

    For this National Theatre production, broadcast to cinemas worldwide, Nicholas Hytner finds a new interpretation of the most famous play in Western history and creates an Elsinore based on constant surveillance and deceit.

    Though the writing is sharp enough to sustain interest from moment to moment, in the end this compact 75-minute work (including intermission) seems incomplete, as if it wants somehow to be part of a fuller canvas.
