A rare revival of Orpheus Descending by Tennessee Williams will run for a limited engagement, April 23-May 14, at St. John's Lutheran Church, one of the oldest buildings in Greenwich Village. Directed by Austin Pendleton, the production features a 16-person cast lead by Irene Glezos, Thomas Beaudoin and Beth Bartley.

BWW Review: Dark and Edgy IN ARABIA WE'D ALL BE KINGS at Theater SchmeaterBWW Review: Dark and Edgy IN ARABIA WE'D ALL BE KINGS at Theater Schmeater
by Jay Irwin - Jan 25, 2016

Stephen Adly Guirgis has made a name for himself for creating glimpses inside the worlds of the rougher and edgier parts of town. Places inhabited by junkies, hookers and criminals like those in his shows 'In Arabia We'd All Be Kings' currently at Theater Schmeater and 'The Motherf**ker with the Hat' currently from Washington Ensemble Theatre (yes, we have two Guirgis shows in town right now). But while the characters in both shows are well written and developed and thoroughly engaging, those in 'In Arabia …' seem to be lacking a complete narrative or plot making it more of a character study than a story.

BWW Review: Edgily Funny and Heartfelt MOTHERF**KER WITH THE HAT from WETBWW Review: Edgily Funny and Heartfelt MOTHERF**KER WITH THE HAT from WET
by Jay Irwin - Jan 17, 2016

As you may know, Dear Readers, I recently criticized another currently running show for having shock for shock sake with not enough narrative. So when I see a title like "The Motherf**ker with the Hat", the current offering from Washington Ensemble Theatre, I get a little worried that I may be in for more of the same. And while the show may have more F bombs than you can shake a hat at and there is a very clear warning of language and nudity posted at the theater, the difference is this play just portrays an honest and real look at the lives of its characters and what results is a funny and heartfelt show where the "shock value" fades into the background in favor of a wonderfully developed and ever evolving story.
