"A is embodied by the incomparable Jackson and it is a performance not to be missed...A suffers a stroke at the end of the first part when unseen theatrical magic takes place. First by the very clever Albee and second by the very clever set designer Miriam Buether, making 'Three Tall Women' one and the same person - each reflecting on their life at different stages. Each reflecting back on the past...A wonderful theatrical production with superb acting by Jackson." Full Review
"It’s all light and superficial. Not plausible nor believable. However the acting is convincing. And then all of a sudden in Act II everything begins to make sense. Sort of…The actors convincingly convey their newfound characters with warmth and honesty. And humor…Mr. Silver has captured both periods exactly and has created a theatrical coup with his double casting…It’s quite sad, believable and touching. Each act is nicely directed by Mark Brokaw with its own and quite unique tone." Full Review
"Unbelievable and sometimes silly production...The producers – Warner Brothers Theatre Ventures and Castle Rock Entertainment are trying to pull a fast one here. Attempting to pull the wool over the eyes of some theater patrons who should know better than to be fooled by star casting, playing it for laughs, gimmicks and a cheesy script that has more holes than there are in a huge chunk of Swiss. The good news is that is goes by rather quickly – 90 minutes – no intermission." Full Review
"On the plus side for Mr. Cabnet he creates some beautiful one dimensional cut-paper silhouette images for the production. Unfortunately some of the actors are giving one dimensional performances in this new lugubrious adaptation by Helen Edmundson…The production is visually attractive yet dark. However, the lighting design by Keith Parham saves the day. Some of the best I’ve ever seen – beautifully illuminating a show that sorely needs it." Full Review
for a previous production "A terrific and thoroughly entertaining soft rock score for 'Pope!,' a clever and hip musical...'Pope!' will lift your spirits, give you some big laughs, and charm you with its sweetness. It’s an irreverent but loving tribute to the eternal fight between good and evil and the redemptive power of forgiveness. Done tongue in cheek – taking aim at religion, tabloid reporters, robots, faith, God and 'The View,' it is played for real with humor that sometimes borders on the ridiculous." Full Review
"A rambling drama/comedy loosely directed by Tony Speciale...Watching this production, where the acting ranges from barely audible to mediocre to excellent, we are reminded of past plays and actors in situations that have been better fleshed out...If you are put off by nudity stay home. If you are put off by writing that doesn’t sparkle stay home as well...The perkiest moments are delivered by Frankie (Dan Domingues)–keep an eye out for this one." Full Review
"A provocative new play by Lucas Hnath which has been swimming upstream since 2013 in various stages of development. It still needs work...Under the unimpressive direction of Lileana Blain-Cruz the play jerks along...Sometimes the dialogue is so rapid fire one tunes out. It is only when they slow down and connect with each other that we begin to care both for Ray and Peter (who gives the best performance of the evening)." Full Review
"How can anyone not fall in love with Sylvia? Especially as portrayed by Annaleigh Ashford who is well on her way to fetching another Tony for her full immersion in doggy behavior and brilliant comedic timing…'Sylvia' is extremely funny…Daniel Sullivan has directed with a steady leash…As they say 'Every dog has its day' and Sylvia is the mutt of the moment. Highly recommended." Full Review
"You just might want to see this finely crafted and multi-textured production at least three times to fully grasp the artistic merits and musical majesty...The entire cast excels dramatically and vocally. They delve deeply into each character trying to resolve their problems. Politics and pressure take their toll on the battleground of 'The First Daughter Suite.' It’s horrifying and humorous - melancholy and disturbing. And vivid." Full Review
"It is a bold, honest, unique, taboo-breaking, laugh filled evening of Mr. Goffman exposing his private inner porno life after discovering his dad’s secret stash of sex tapes hidden in the back of the closet which gave him a tainted view of women until he met his wife and fathered a daughter."
