Small World Department: I’m really excited about this bit of news:  Once again, the magic of Lewis Carroll makes itself felt in surprising ways. As many of you know, I’m a big fan of Lewis Carroll, and even recently served for four years as President of the Lewis Carroll Society of North America.  Currently, I […]

La Bete on Broadway

My partner and I caught one of the last performances of the Broadway revival of David Hirson’s verse comedy La Bete, and all I can say is it’s a crying shame it couldn’t at least finish out its originally planned limited run–and then run a whole lot longer!  I did not see the original, short-lived […]

Bonnie Langford Christmas in New York

My partner Tim and I joined my buddy (and composer pal) Eric Barnes recently to see Bonnie Langford: Christmas in New York, a new cabaret performance that is part of the 59E59 Theatre’s “Brits Off Broadway” series.  Eric and Bonnie had worked together on the recent national tour of Chicago, with Eric on keyboards ...

Brief Encounter on Broadway

I love good plays.  I love good movies.  So I was glad we found a chance to see Brief Encounter on Broadway.  I had never seen the classic film version, but that didn’t interfere with my enjoying this unique stage incarnation.  In fact, now I can’t wait to see the film!  Britain’s Kneehigh Theatre has […]

In the Next Room or The Vibrator Play

I’ve just now realized to my astonishment that I never got around to doing a post about the Broadway production of Sarah Ruhl’s play In the Next Room, or The Vibrator Play.  I’m particularly abashed, because it’s one of the best plays we’ve seen in a long, long time.  We caught it in its final […]

David Mamet’s Race

Last week, we went to see buddy Afton C. Williamson, who has stepped into the starring role of Susan in David Mamet’s hot-button Broadway play, Race.  Afton was every bit as fabulous as I would have expected, and the role turned out to be a very juicy one!  It was great seeing her take advantage […]

Next to Normal

Tim and I caught Next to Normal a couple of nights before Alice Ripley left the Broadway cast.  Like a lot of people, we were a bit leery of what sounded like some pretty dark subject matter.  So we kept putting it off.  But we didn’t want to miss it, having heard such good things, […]

The Screwtape Letters

Saturday night, Tim and I went to see my buddy Steve Hauck take on the title role in The Screwtape Letters at the Westside Arts Theatre, Off Broadway.  Steve is standby for star/adaptor Max McLean, and happily knew in advance that both he and his fellow standby, Elise Girardin, would be going on for both […]

Everyday Rapture

We went to see Everyday Rapture recently, as we had loved Sherie Rene Scott in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.  She did not disappoint!  What a lovely, gracious onstage presence.  And then that fabulous voice!  It was no surprise that she can turn on the wattage whenever she wants, but what was especially lovely about this self-created ...

The Temperamentals

Tim and I went to catch The Temperamentals before its closing.  The five member cast did a beautiful job of telling the remarkable story.  I really knew nothing about Harry Hay, or his Mattachine Society, the first gay rights organization in America.  It’s a remarkable tale, and a humbling one.  And the fact that he […]
