A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE Manny Fried Playhouse/Subversive Theatre
As the current debate over immigration policy shows, there has long been an attraction of people coming to this country in hopes of a better future for them or for their children.
It’s been that way for longer than the four-centuries since my first ancestor came ashore.

MUD Torn Space Theater/Adam Mickiewicz Center
“Mud” is an incoherent and ethereal show from Torn Space.
It’s the kind of play which makes you think the director cut the script and didn’t make sure it all holds together.

ARCADIA Court House Theatre/Shaw Festival
The true genius is someone who comes up with something truly new.
That genius can be like Charles Babbage whose early computer couldn't be built in his day because the machine tool industry couldn't handle the tolerances.
That's what Tom Stoppard's “Arcadia” is about, two women kept in their place.

THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA Court House Theatre/Shaw FestivalRT
There's no excuse for the Shaw Festival production of “The Light in the Piazza.”
In a decision I'm usually supportive of, the Shaw chose not to put the cast on microphones.
However, it's a mistake in this case unless you are pretty close to the stage in the relatively small Court House Theatre.
