    My AIDS

    This personable young man from Buffalo can hold a stage, forging an easy rapport with his audience. But bravery and charm aren't enough to turn a familiar and rather naive story into riveting theater.

    Bong Bong Bong Against the Walls, Ting Ting Ting in Our Heads

    This well-designed puppet musical about mentally disabled children means well, but it doesn't always pull the right strings.

    Playwright Steve Willis has gotten some of the harder things right in his promising new play "Passing Ceremonies," including sharp characterization and coherent supernatural rules.
