Like everything else during the Christmas season, many New York’s theaters also become a winter wonderland. A variety of holiday shows are currently running for both your naughty and nice sides this season. The oldest, and most famous Christmas show is of course, The Nutcracker, seen every December at the New York City Ballet.  The [...]

It’s been a rough year for Eugene O’Neill.  First his 1925 drama, Desire Under the Elms, was a substantial flop on Broadway.  Despite an interesting cast (including Brian Dennehy and Carla Gugino) the play was bizarrely directed—and heavily edited—by Robert Falls and it closed early, with some performances (like the one I attended) more than [...]

Jones would be the driving force behind a potential Broadway hit, even if it had been Fela!, about the life and music of political activist and musician Fela Anikulapo-Kuti. Jones was of course a major figure in the dance world, but his [...]

If you want proof that the the borders of classical music just keep getting more porous, you need look no further than Three Lost Chords, a one-hour show that has been playing at the offbeat little Zipper Theater on Wednesdays and Sundays since March 23. The Zipper is a tiny space in the garment district [...]
