by BWW News Desk - Sep 5, 2019

This December, Park Avenue Armory will round out its 2019 season with the world premiere of a new adaptation of ?-dön von Horváth's 1937 play Judgment Day, an ambitious work that explores morality, responsibility, and the guilt of a small-town's train stationmaster and his community.

BWW Review: Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Colin Woodell in Christopher Shinn's DYING CITYBWW Review: Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Colin Woodell in Christopher Shinn's DYING CITY
by Michael Dale - Jun 4, 2019

Playwright Christopher Shinn, who directs Second Stage's new production of his 2008 Pulitzer finalist Dying City, places a large black void at the upstage wall as part of designer Dane Laffrey's otherwise realistic depiction of rather non-descript Manhattan apartment.

Its purpose, perhaps, is to represent that emptiness that can be felt by both individually and collectively after. (more...)
