Who's Afraid of Virgina Woolf? at Booth Theatre
Albee Damned! They changed Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?! How could they and, more importantly, is it better or worse for the edit? Find out in our full review whether we think they should have stayed faithful or if, like the manic Martha, we think it's okay to cheat a little now and then.
Neutral Hero at The Kitchen
Neutral Hero, now playing at downtown institution The Kitchen, is Richard Maxwell's first play in five years that he's both written and directed. In the Iliad-like piece, he sets himself the unenviable task of achieving total neutrality on the part of his protagonist (and, impossibly, on the part of the audience and their feelings toward said protagonist). What would compel someone to do such a thing? Are the results worth the effort of creative team and more importantly is it worth the effort of the audience? Find out in our full review!
Wild With Happy at The Public Theater
Colman Domingo is a force. His over-the-top personas are a font of fun. From a closeted Baptist and a West Berlin performance artist in Passing Strange to a foul-mouthed Maya Angelou on the brilliant but cancelled Big Gay Sketch Show, his characters never disappoint. But how does he fair in the more intimate and emotional territory of a play he penned himself about his mother's death? In Wild With Happy, now playing at The Public Theater, we get a chance to see if his softer side is as engaging as his outrageous one.
