The latest play from 91-year-old Horton Foote By JACQUES LE SOURD

Foote's view, ultimately, is a dark and depressing one. And he never makes a point once that he can make six times.
But his plays are richly layered portraits of human frailties.

Borough on Broadway By JACQUES LE SOURD

"Brooklyn The Musical" is definitely not for everyone.
But the show is not easy to dismiss, either, because of the super-abundance of talent evident in the songs, the performances and the design element.
Didn't he like "Dracula" too?

Accept no substitutes by JACQUES LE SOURD

Langella alone makes the evening worthwhile.
If he's not there, make sure you're not, either.

Review: 'Fiddler on the Roof' by JACQUES LE SOURD

It is not a traditional "Fiddler," nor perhaps is it the definitive one. But it is one that is full of beauty, and that will serve this revival's purpose for today.
(Note: Something must be done about the mob scene at the entrance to the theater, where bags are checked for security at the same spot where tickets are torn. There must be a better way to channel human traffic in a Broadway theater.)
