40 WEEKS is a rom-com about a relationship during pregnancy. Fair enough, and maybe those who’ve tried the “giving birth” thing will take more away from this production than I did. Maybe sympathizing with two Millenial Yuppies would be easier if I’d felt the same lack of surety in a relationship with a kid on the way. But isn’t one point of drama to make the specific universal, and open up new experiences to those who haven’t had them? Instead, we watch the tired cliché of boingourgeois-marries-bohemian as the couple winds through the inevitable arguments that follow. Who will pay for the baby? Who will paint the baby’s room? Will Mark get his book published, or at least make a sale on the subway? And why should the audience care about these feckless whiners? Angie’s unhappy, Mark’s unhappy, and the only two who seem to be pleased with where they are with their partner are Scott and Molly.
I contrast Danny Boyle’s 127 HOURS with Annie Dorsen’s HELLO HI THERE, and discuss the nature of entertainment in a post-human world. Continue reading
What a fantastic little fable about American politics. In THE BODY POLITIC, writers Richard Abrons and Margarett Perry (the latter of whom also directs this production) have crafted a whip-cracker of a tale about a Republican who falls for a Democrat on the campaign trail.

In an opening scene that plays with language and quickly sets up a device by which the audience understands when the characters on stage are speaking the Asmat language and when they speak English, Designing Man and his friend-brother, Half Moon, greet Michael Rockefeller, who has come from the kingdom of New York to meet the man who carved the beautiful pieces that have captured his imagination.

This twenty-year-old “trunk play” should have stayed put – the production that results at the Barrow Group Theater on 36th street, courtesy of Director and Producer John Stark, is somehow turgid and rushed all at once. Continue reading
The Fortune Teller, from puppeteering theatre company Phantom Limb and featuring music by composing legend Danny Elfman, is the sort of schauedenfreude -filled Victoriana that promises depth in its production values but fails to deliver on this promise. There’s been a rash of over-styled, under-storied tales in various media over the last few years, no doubt in part to the rising popularity of the steampunk/urban fantasy/gothic aesthetic that has influenced artists like Elfman’s frequent collaborator Tim Burton. In this case, the shallow nature of the design concept and its lack of relationship to the story being told reveals a disappointing weakness in this production. Continue reading
