    Sometimes great source material does not make for great art; and The Collaboration’s looks to stand as proof positive. Though the same examination of artists made for a great movie in Basquiat, this play presents caricatures spouting viewpoints and leaves much to be desired. Jeremy Pope succeeds slightly better at playing Jean-Michel Basquiat than Paul Bettany as Andy Warhol, but even these talented actors can only do so much with a bad script.

    Garnering some of the greatest critical acclaim in recent memory, Jordan E. Cooper’s Ain’t No Mo’ is nothing less than a triumph.

    Reviews for OHIO STATE MURDERS are In…

    Ohio State Murders brings together three incredible luminaries: actress Audra McDonald, director Kenny Leon and playwright Adrienne Kennedy and the end result is a wow. Audra is on her way to earning yet another Tony with a subtle, heartbreaking and varied performance of both young and old Suzanne. And Leon handles Kennedy’s complex script with absolute finesse.

    Reviews for A CHRISTMAS CAROL are In…

    Jefferson Mays is no stranger to playing multiple characters or one-man shows. Starring as every character in A Christmas Carol, this is a manic production with striking lighting and sound design, and leans into the spookiness of the story. Sometimes the critics got lost in the multiple characters, sometimes in the blurring of the heavy-handed production design, but overall, everyone was grateful to see a vivid new interpretation of this classic show and grateful that Mays was at the center of it all.

    Reviews For MIKE BIRBIGLIA: THE OLD MAN AND THE POOL Are In…

    Mike Birbiglia’s latest Broadway show received universal praise. A smart script and talented comedian with full control of the room make for a fun evening of theatre. If you’ve seen a Birbiglia show before, you know just what’s in store, as he relies on much of the same things that have worked for him before; and they work perfectly once again.
