    OONA: SPONTANEOUS THEATRE

    Were the press kit made available to everyone, you, too, could behold the image of the actress who has chosen in her headshot to flip off the viewer. While one can certainly appreciate the we-don't-follow-the-rules-we-make-them attitude, the sad truth is that when you're indulging in a self-styled "completely ...

    This oddly bleak moral drama, whose book is credited to playwrights Ramen Cromwell and Blake Goddard, can't be faulted for lack of ambition. Director David Lee's production ingeniously strives to create a heightened sense of reality through what is, essentially, an ingenious and imaginative new form of theatre ...

    JIMMY CHRIST

    It sounds like a neat outrageous idea: a play about Jesus Christ's "less cool younger brother." The reality is a mistake even one of the older brother's miracles couldn't correct. In a television-oriented mush of bad old jokes played like outtakes from Leave It to Beaver, playwright ...
