Inside Bedlam's lively take on Sense & Sensibility --- The creators and stars of Bedlam's Sense & Sensibility are well aware that Jane Austen fans, a notoriously devoted and opinionated group, are going to bring a very critical eye to their adaptation of her beloved novel. As points of comparison, there are already plenty of other interpretations...

Inside his sound design for three major new plays --- Fitz Patton hears things differently than most people do, but that's his job as a theatrical sound designer. "There's a thing called 'reduced listening' where you just hear sounds for what they are and you don't think about the source," says the Tony Award nominee. "But after you design enough...

Sometimes, a scent defines an entire production --- Weeks later, I can still smell A View from the Bridge. Granted, the current revival of Arthur Miller's classic play, which is on Broadway in a production from director Ivo van Hove, left quite a few deep impressions.

Wardrobe jokes in Important Hats of the Twentieth Century --- You can almost capture the spirit of Important Hats of the Twentieth Century with a single image. A little past the halfway point of Nick Jones's new comedy, which Manhattan Theatre Club is presenting at City Center's Stage II, we see a man bent over a worktable, wearing a welder's mask...

How seeing Matilda from the front row made it even more magical --- My 12-year-old daughter is one of the biggest Matilda The Musical fans on the planet. She has memorized the entire score -- not just Matilda's songs, but every single lyric (go ahead and ask, she'll sing it all for you). She has dressed as Matilda for Halloween.

Inside the design of the Broadway adaptation --- Genuinely frightening an audience is a bit like catching lightning in a bottle – or maybe that's thunder. "I keep saying, 'Just turn all the thunder up. It'll be really scary,'" quips Will Frears, who's directing Misery, the new Broadway stage adaptation of Stephen King's novel (and the subsequent...

The piercing design of Broadway's A View From the Bridge --- Just a little over five years ago, Scarlett Johansson won a Tony Award for her performance in a revival of Arthur Miller's A View From the Bridge, so it might seem surprising that the family drama set in 1950s Red Hook is already back on Broadway.
