Plaza Suite at the Hudson Theatre

Neil Simon’s clever use of humor to tell soulful stories about the suburbs of New York City and the friction of ordinary lives is spellbinding. He wrote what he knew, which were primarily autobiographical pieces he termed “urban neuroses.” Barefoot in the Park depicted his marriage to his first love and wife. They lived every detail.

POTUS at the Shubert

The President has blurted out another gaffe, and everyone is scurrying to fix his latest blunder. Sound all too familiar? Well, in this case, it takes more than his wife and favorable news reporters to cover up this mess. It’s so bad that the care of seven women is needed for damage control.

Girl from the North Country

The women carry the show. Memorable, and the highlight is Mrs. Laine (Mare Winningham). She has dementia and lost her filter years ago. She is rip-roaring hilarious and made the otherwise severe, sad, and depressing depiction of life wake up the audience. Another resident Mrs. Burke (Luba Mason), takes off and starts playing the drums – in heels!

Mrs. Doubtfire

The brother Karey Kirkpatrick and John O’Farrell created the book and are back at it again to make music and lyrics of pure unadulterated fun. Mrs. Doubtfire at the Stephen Sondheim theater is an update of the 1993 film starring Robin Williams, but funnier and more entertaining.

Macbeth at the Longacre Theater

If you’re a Shakespeare fan and a purist, Sam Gold’s direction is not the version for you. The entire company breaks out into song with original music by Gaelynn Lea, and Michael Patrick Thornton narrates the play from his wheelchair, beginning with a brief history of Shakespeare. Yes, this is Shakespeare’s Macbeth.

Birthday Candles

It is not a happy birthday. No full life savored and enjoyed or marked with celebration. Birthday Candles is traumatic and not for those that wear their emotions on their sleeve or recently have participated in life.
