Shining City
Conor McPherson's new play about discontented Dubliners is oddly mesmerizing.
Defying Hitler
Rupert Wickham's solo show about one man's inability to stand up to Hitler is riveting and revelatory.
A Spalding Gray Matter
Michael Brandt compares his own life to that of the late, great monologuist in this stirring tribute.
Brundibar
Tony Kushner's adaptation of the famed Czech children's opera is admirable but not especially entertaining.
The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial
Zeljko Ivanek is a superlative Captain Queeg in the current revival of Herman Wouk's military courtroom drama.
Corteo
If you take in Cirque du Soleil's latest show, it's best to forget the story and just enjoy the amazing acts.
Faith Healer
Brian Friel's quartet of monologues is well acted but doesn't constitute real drama.
Zorba
The Reprise! production of this Kander-Ebb-Stein musical boasts a uniformly outstanding cast.
The Lieutenant of Inishmore
Martin McDonagh's bloody comedy/drama has transferred to Broadway with every bright facet intact.
cul-de-sac
In some ways, John Cariani's play is reminiscent of Edward Albee's A Delicate Balance and The Play About the Baby, but it also recalls the old radio show The Bickersons.
