Jamming on a greased-up glass slipper BY GORDON COX

"Cinderella" lumbers onto the New York City Opera stage like a clunky theme-park spectacle. It's the kind of show that expects applause just for dragging on four live, uncomfortable-looking horses to pull Cinderella's pumpkin-carriage off to the ball.

THEATER REVIEW | 'NIGHT, MOTHER'

Mother-Daughter Angst, With Death in the Wings By BEN BRANTLEY

'Night' isn't deep, dark enough By HOWARD KISSEL

Each of the women has powerful moments, but the overall feeling is flat and mechanical, an exercise in facile nihilism.
