In any discussion of the all-time greatest female movie characters, there are certain names that are always guaranteed to come up: Dorothy Gale, Scarlett O'Hara, Holly Golightly...and Nomi Malone. And if you don't think she belongs on that list, let's just hope she doesn't find out-this one's got a temper.

Pony World's world premiere 'American Archipelago' is a collaborative examination of American culture and values. Written by Holly Arsenault, Kelleen C. Blanchard, Tre Calhoun, Vincent Delaney, Brendan Healy, Maggie Lee, Sara Porkalob, and Seayoung Yim, 'American Archipelago' feels more like an incubator than a melting pot. Eight folks from different communities live side-by-side in a semi-symbolic neighborhood called 'The United States of America.' While this campy fever-dream succeeds as a black comedy, what's missing from this conceptual piece is a fresh concept.

Winter in New York City is not known for being particularly steamy (though the unseasonably mild weather this year gives one reason to pause), but there is always Complexions Contemporary Ballet's season at the Joyce Theater to turn up the heat to a feverish, sweltering boiling point! For the 26th season, the company revived recent seminal works -- Bach 25 and Woke -- alongside favorites spanning from 1994 to a brand new solo in Essential Parts, which acted as a 'Greatest Hits' compilation for the ever-evolving, always revolutionary dance troupe. This year also marked the World Premiere of their latest exploration of the full canon of a particular musician's oeuvre -- Love Rocks featuring the music of the iconic Grammy-winning rockstar, Lenny Kravitz. For patrons unable to attend all programs, FOMO (fear of missing out) syndrome is understandable, but for those who are highly familiar with the group's work or only getting their first taste, Program C -- which featured the latter two mentioned -- was the most delectable sampling of Complexions offerings old and new. The fascinating thing about such juxtapositions is that, in seeing the latest creations from 2020 side-by-side with choreography premiered in the early 1990s, it is remarkable to note how the level of innovation, depth of emotion and current relevance remains the same. It's a reminder that timeliness and timelessness can coexist, given the right mediums and masters. The genius of legendary Co-Founders, Co-Artistic Directors Desmond Richard and Dwight Rhoden (also the Principal Choreographer) cannot be underestimated. Indeed, it has not. They have both achieved phenomenal success and longevity, been lauded as trailblazers and received numerous accolades from peers, critics and audiences alike since they burst on the dance scene. It's no wonder that they have utilized the music of David Bowie, Stevie Wonder, Kendrick Lamar and Lenny Kravitz to tell their stories through bodies in motion -- they are rockstars themselves!

Sex is in the news a lot lately, and most of the news ain't good...sexual assault, abuse, misconduct- sex as a source of trauma, a weapon of power. What if that's not really sex? What if we redefine sex to mean a source of connection, a means of communication? Sex as medicine?

What's it like to reach age 28 without ever having an orgasm? 'I'm Coming' chronicles Molly's long, harrowing...and strangely expensive journey to the Big O. It's an honest, sex-positive and unnervingly funny take on pleasure and the ever-elusive female orgasm.

Ever get to the theater, expecting to laugh, cry, think and be moved? This is not one of those times. I would like to say that NSFW at the Santa Fe Playhouse ran that gamut of emotions for me, but I would be lying. That's not to say that it didn't have its moments, it's just that there weren't enough of those moments to make for a cohesive and compelling evening at the theater.

Holly (Tamsin Newlands) and Sophie (Claire Heverin) are aspiring (and broke) filmmakers. Frustrated by their sex lives and the lack of female-lead porn, they find themselves writing an erotic film of their own. Written by Grace Carroll and Bryony Cole, Wet is politely funny with a couple ingenious directorial hints.

'I'm about to talk to you about sex, not the sex of cheap mass produced erotica, not the oh-god-oh-yes-oh-no performance sex of porn, not the sex that men want and women aren't sure if they want it or not because they've never known anything else, but real sex, with real bodies. And in this conversation, [almost] everyone is allowed to speak.'

One thing for sure about Joshua Harmon's Significant Other is that all of the characters like to talk, nonstop, and while talking about the mundane, like dating, possible mates and themselves, they manage to be funny and serious simultaneously. Jordan Berman (Will Von Vogt) is gay and desperately seeking a partner. He has his eyes set on Will (John Garet Stoker), with whom he works, and is nothing short of obsessive in his approach to asking him out. Will is distant, and it takes Jordan a lot of effort to get
