by Marianka Swain - Oct 25, 2016

The Globe has announced that Emma Rice will be stepping down as Artistic Director in April 2018, two years after her tenure began.

BWW Review: TRAVESTIES, Apollo Theatre
by Alexandra Coghlan - Feb 16, 2017

'What did you do during the war, Dada?' Somewhere underneath the relentless punning and the pastiche, the whistle-stop wit and the whirling theoretical debate, there's a seriousness to Tom Stoppard's 1974 Travesties that feels horribly prescient. The intellectual hijinks are genuinely hilarious, but there's no disguising the weight of the question they restlessly scamper over and clamber round: what can artists do when faced with social crisis? Can their work claim political agency, or are they just schoolboys with a chit to get them off chores, daubing happily away in a corner? (more...)

Explore the 'Six Degrees' Between SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION Casts
by Matt Tamanini - Apr 30, 2017

By now, the idea has morphed into a pop-culture game lampooning (or honoring) one of our most prolific actors, but when John Guare's play, Six Degrees of Separation, debuted on Broadway in 1990, the idea that everyone on the planet was connected through a web of just six other people was a hard to imagine. So, to celebrate the 27-year history of Guare's play, we are going to attempt to connect the stars who originated the main roles on Broadway to the actors that assumed them for the revival, using only Broadway credits; hopefully we can get there in just six 'degrees.'
