BWW Review: CABARET at Altria TheatreBWW Review: CABARET at Altria Theatre
February 24, 2018

I believe that I can safely attest that this particular revival of CABARET, which met its incipience with the Donmar Warehouse production in London way back in 1993, bears the graces of a masterwork that has stood the test of time.

February 15, 2018

I must preface this article to indicate that as much as I found this production of ALL MY SONS to be beguiling and devastatingly gripping, I found myself thinking, 'Wow, people just don't talk this way anymore. In fact, they really don't act this way anyone, either.' The play was written and set in 1947.

BWW Review: HATTheatre's HILLARY AND CLINTON: Affairs, Rivalries and a Soupçon of Sci-Fi
November 11, 2017

HILLARY AND CLINTON, a kind of seriocomedy written by Lucas Hnath, is about the Clintons... and yet it isn't. This piece is an interesting amalgamation of political intrigue and a science-fiction contrivance that takes us quite-literally out of this world.
