Doctors Jane and Alexander by Christopher Caz

Additional credit can be given to Simon and Wolkowitz’s performances by the excellent supporting cast and Einhorn’s writing. The script's one weakness appears to be an insistence on prov…

A City of Refuge by Christopher Caz

The story itself has potential, yet despite the actors’ heroic attempts to bring truth to it, the script has its characters written to say and do so many unrealistic things that the core a…

Confidence (and the Speech) by Christopher Caz

Political plots can be dry as toast. Hatem attempts to spice things up by crossing the genders of the actors playing Carter and young Cynthia; the convention is an interesting choice althoug…

Monsoon Season by Christopher Caz

Vieh’s script is extremely clever in its telling two sides of a story completely by separate monologues. The dialogue is real and yet extremely funny, never revealing too much, allowing th…

The Worth of Water by Christopher Caz

Rocky execution aside, the play is not without humor, imagination, charm and whimsy, and the same can be said about the designs by Jessie Bonaventure (scenic), Johanna Pan (costumes), Kelley…

The Buffalo Play by Christopher Caz

Perp by Christopher Caz

Alexandro and Ben-Victor as the soul-stained detectives are excellently cast, playing off each other without a single misstep. The gender-blind casting of Alexandro as Jack is especially fun…

The New York Pops: “Movie Mixtape: Songs from the Silver Screen” by Christopher Caz

Fiercely Independent by Christopher Caz

Let’s talk about the talent:  Gallogly and Smith are, in a word, fantastic in "Fiercely Independent." They listen to each other intently, their responses are spontaneous and natural, and …

Whirlwind by Christopher Caz
