Mr. Lithgow, ham that he is, is wonderful - along with his wry take on the proceedings. But the production and choice of tales just doesn’t cut the mustard.
I urge anyone who is thinking of attending (which would not be high on my to-do list) to first read the very informative insert by David Cote enclosed in the Playbill program.
A cliché-ridden sex fantasy farce. A surreal pseudo-intellectual gimmick. Best line – “Just rub it around the rim.” Enough said.
SpongeBob, the ever optimistic hero of this opus – portrayed by Ethan Slater makes a tremendous and auspicious Broadway debut.
Pretending to be a pot-boiler this is a very slow cooker. Quel dommage! They drink a lot. And lie a lot.
An enchanting score by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty that oozes truth and honesty with more than a few Caribbean flourishes
Senor Leguizamo no matter how good he is and he is very good - has not learned that brevity is the soul of wit
It is quite special seeing Arabs and Jews in complete harmony making beautiful music together in this gentle, charming and thoroughly inviting musical.
What should be an intriguing, fascinating and intimate story has been blown up to operatic proportions with floating screens, elaborate costumes and noisy percussive music.
The torch has been passed along to Michael Urie who as hard as he tries is still chasing Harvey to the finish line in this slimmed down, revised version directed by Moises Kaufman
How refreshing to hear melodies and lyrics that fall wonderfully on the ear – caressing rather than bombarding by a terrific cast of six full throttled vocalists.
It’s in the tradition of a well-made three act play with a slight variation: Beginning. End. Middle. An uneven production where the set will be probably remembered above all.
No one should worry about Harvey Weinstein. He will be fine. He will be back working in Hollywood with all his friends soon. Just look at David Letterman, Roman Polanski, Bill Cosby, Bill …
The play ends ambiguously. This gets people talking about what happened or what didn’t happen as they leave the New York Theatre Workshop
It’s fascinating that so many find violence entertaining.
Despite some flying this Peter peters out as a play.
This Reader’s Digest version of memorable (and some not so memorable) songs/scenes from the incredible resume of Hal’s productions is less than the sum of its parts
Jerry Lewis starred on Broadway in the hit musical Damn Yankees in 1995. He played the Devil himself, a fellow named Applegate. Producer Mitchell Maxwell remembers meeting and working with…
An instant masterpiece created by Beth David and Esteban Bravo
Unfortunately the play is not the thing here. Sam Gold is. A simple case of murder most foul.
Too many stories going on – the not fully cooked production is ultimately unsatisfying - too many spoons in the pasta
“Pain compels truth.” So if you experience a little discomfort watching this production perhaps that’s a good thing
The voice of Horton Foote rings true as his well worn characters gossip and go about their lives and wait to see the fate of Georgette Thomas in this seemingly abridged 1954 play.
This new adaptation seems to have been penned with the Marx Brothers in mind. Director Jesse Berger has picked up the reins and directs the fine cast of actors at a full gallop.
The spanning-the-decades costumes by Catherine Zuber are knock-outs. As are the spectacular hats. But when hats and haute-couture upstage the book and score you’re in trouble.
It has lost one intermission but has gained a bigger audience on a much larger acting space that gives the actors a mighty workout - shouting louder than ever.
It has to be believed to be seen! With tons of kids excited and expectant in the audience. The feeling is contagious.
Sam Gold directs this sparring match to perfection.
Jerry Zaks has taken over the direction and made this production a hilarious vaudevillian farce that makes us as pleased as punch.
Go and be tremendously moved. Be entertained. Laugh and cry. And most importantly be reminded of the horrors of censorship and its repercussions. At The Cort Theatre.
