The emotional logic of Rady & Bloom's latest play --- Given what we've learned about the characters in The Upper Room, it's incredibly moving when one of them wears a walrus mask. It's equally powerful when two of them stand on ladders and toss tiny pieces of tissue paper in the air, which flutter to the ground while a woman sings a mournful...

The Irish Rep's latest play creates the rough energy of 1980s Belfast --- If you know the folk song "I'll Tell Me Ma," which is also called "The Belle of Belfast City," then it might conjure images of a joyous Irish community. Or it might remind you of that one Chieftans album everyone had in junior high. Chances are, however, it won't make...

Notes from the costume designer and wardrobe supervisor --- Any parent – and anyone who has been parented in their lives – knows that keeping kids' clothes off the floor and free from stains is a full-time job.

How writer-director Aya Ogawa brings video game technology to the theatre --- At first glance, theatre and video games appear to represent polar opposite forms of entertainment. One is an irreproducible live event shared by many; the other a simulation of an experience directed entirely by its participants. Aya Ogawa's new play sets out...

It's only afterward, when all the trap doors have silently slid open, that we realize this family's house has become a gaping maw. One foot wrong, and someone could disappear into darkness. In that moment, the set of Fun Home, the...

By MARK BLANKENSHIP It's no accident that The Groundling takes place in a guy's garage. Marc Palmieri's new comedy, now at Axis Theatre, follows Bob Malone, a landscaper who's so moved by an outdoor performance of Love's Labour's Lost that he decides to write his own play about his marriage. He mostly casts his friends and family---though...
