    How Much Is Enough?: Our Values in Question

    The Foundry Theatre's new production feels like an unusual group-therapy session that, though at times forced and treacly, manages to be quite powerful in spite of itself.

    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.

    This solo play about a fictional author who wrote a book about the Galveston hurricane becomes a journey into one woman's regrettable nonexistence.
