War Words

War Words, these are true stories of those who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. They are the best of us and the worst of us.

Godzilla’s Prince at Pangea

Doc Dougherty’s show at Pangea, Godzilla’s Prince, is an epic story of not only survival from an abusive childhood in Irish New York but of perseverance and kindness, of love that transcends the Homeric horrors one child had to endure. He had a boyhood of violence inflicted by both family and school. Sadomasochists can be found everywhere even in the supposed sacred confines of religion.

Aging is Not a Fairy Tale

Aging is Not a Fairy Tale at the Theater for the New City is a delightful, charming, humorous admixture of favorite fairy tales and characters. The repartee was well crafted and sophisticated, and the cast masterfully executed the many subtle and less subtle jabs with splendid, natural timing and assurance.

Telling Tales out of School

Telling Tales out of School is a quick-witted, sharp, intelligent look at the world of the Harlem Renaissance and its artists. These women are each strong and fearless, witty and dry, considerate and caring.

Redwood

Redwood, now playing at Ensemble Studio Theater, is a story with layers upon layers of human history, it is a story of immediacy, of familiar and unfamiliar light, of purpose and perception. How the story unfolds in its flash dance, aerobics, and musically wonderful theatrical on-fire staging is stupendous, joyful, and ravishing.

The Constant Wife

The Constant Wife was charming, fun, witty, droll, elegant, and deserving of the full house and extended ovations. From the onset, listeners were drawn into a mesmerizing plot of well-crafted characters. The company frolicked while gliding through hypocritical attitudes and gender roles prevalent in early 20th-century society.

Scrambled Eggs

Scrambled Eggs by the author Reginald L. Wilson made its world premiere at the Gene Frankel Theater in New York City. It was crafted in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month. It was billed as a “compelling play on domestic violence is meant to incite conversation, build understanding, and inspire advocacy.”

Psycho Clan and ETR Ventures' Nightmare Dollhouse

Nightmare Dollhouse

Nightmare Dollhouse was a spooky, creepy doll-themed event that sent shivers down spines, horrible horripilations indeed! The event was staged in an old building in New York’s Lower East Side. One inched through the dimly lit rooms while walking or crawling through creepy spaces. Strange artifacts, surprises, and spine-tingling antics by weird characters made the heart race. I’ll not give it all away, but my favorite may have been sticking needles in a voodoo doll as the victim squirmed, or wait, perhaps I enjoyed drinking from a child’s make-believe haunted tea set as I was offered a ‘biscuit’ shaped like a giant cockroach.

Mark Arthur Miller: Soul Searching

Mark Arthur Miller hits the stage at The Green Room 42 with sensational exuberance and sizzling delight. He is in his element as a dancer, singer, and showman. His show, appropriately named, “Soul Searching” dips deep into your heart and soul with some of the best music ever created. Music and lyrics that are moving, beautiful, perceptive, and aesthetic, that you’ll want each song to be pushed past its end and continue on and on. You’ll want the evening to never end. Your soul has been lifted. Lifted to the glowing moon, lifted to the flickering stars.
