For a generation and more, readers of the cartoon “Peanuts” have watched the behavior of the kids as they deal with the problems of being young.

Actually, they do.

MIRACLE ON SOUTH DIVISION STREET Kavinoky Theatre
There’s nothing like family secrets for entertainment, with TV and the web creating “reality shows.”

LITTLE ROBERT American Repertory Theater of WNY/Episcopal Church of the Ascension
It’s not clear when he was born and it’s not clear where he was buried and it’s not clear where he wandered when away from the Mississippi Delta and even the cause of his death isn’t clear.
Robert Johnson comes down to us as a couple of authenticated photographs and a small array of 78 recordings.

THE SHAPE OF THINGS Manny Fried Playhouse/Subversive Theatre
College and university campuses have traditionally been pretty tolerant about the bad behavior around the manicured lawns.

SET UP Alleyway Theatre
Dan Noonan’s “Set Up” starts as a blind date from hell and turns into something quite different from what’s suggested by the opening.

CLYBOURNE PARK 710 Main Theatre/Road Less Traveled Productions
In Shakespeare’s time, it was fairly common for playwrights to take a set of characters and a story put together by their competitors and write what amounts to a sequel.
The Bard is supposed to have done that although details are debated.
Bruce Norris’ “Clybourne Park” is in that same path.

THE SUNSET LIMITED Paul Robeson Theatre/African American Cultural Center
There’s nothing like a good play filled with substance and conflict and Cormac McCarthy’s “The Sunset Limited” has plenty of both.

MASTER CLASS MusicalFare Theatre/Daemen College
One of the oldest traditions in high culture is the way knowledge is passed down from one generation of performers to another to ensure the rules and the history and the tricks of the trade aren’t lost.
That’s what Terrence McNally’s “Master Class” is about, legendary opera singer Maria Callas (Christina Rausa) teaching some Juilliard students about being an opera performer.

THE LITTLE FOXES Andrews Theatre/Irish Classical Theatre
One of the most fascinating things about Lillian Hellman’s “The Little Foxes” is the similarity and the differences with Tennessee Williams’ “Cat On A Hot Tin Roof.”

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.
