    Passing Strange

    Passing Strange, which opened Off-Broadway May 14, isn't in the running for a Tony Award, and for the favorites, this is good news.

    The Blue Martini

    The Blue Martini, a new play by Michael Ferrell, is a rare concoction: a work about 20-something relationships that sips more than it swills, with a wit and charm that leave you with a nice buzz for hours afterward.

    Odchodzi (Passing Away)

    Hauntingly ethereal, this wordless play brings playwright-poet Tadeusz Rozewicz's book of reflections on his mother's death to the stage with heart-stirring theatricality.

    With his lanky frame, unusual haircut, and facial scruff, Max (Michael Mason) is immediately recognizable as a New York hipster.

    This so-so show makes it fun to watch snobs get their comeuppance, but that's mild entertainment at best.
