Lonesome Traveler celebrates a great American genre --- "Tom Dooley" encapsulates the spirit of Lonesome Traveler. When the actors portraying the Kingston Trio perform that classic song, everything from their harmonies to their crisp button downs recall the folk music era of the 50s and 60s. But at the same time, we still see these performers...

By MARK BLANKENSHIP The first time he read Fashions For Men Davis McCallum wasn't quite sure what to make of it. "It's unlike any other play I've done, and I've been doing plays for 20 years," he says. "That's part of why I wanted to direct it." Written by Hungarian playwright Ferenc Molnár in 1917, the script initially seems like...

By DIEP TRAN Playwright Chiara Atik does not like watching sex. On stage at least. "I always get uncomfortable and immediately start thinking, 'Oh I wonder if the actor's mom is here,'" she says. "It takes me out of the moment." Knowing that, it's ironic that her play Five Times in One Night  is entirely about the beast with two...

By JACK SMART Some demons are imaginary and some of them are real, and during a climactic moment in Little Children Dream of God, they all engulf the stage. Jeff Augustin's play, now in Roundabout's Underground series, follows a Haitian immigrant named Sula, who has floated to Miami on a car tire in search of a better life. Eventually, though,...

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...

Director Michael Longhurst isn't big on naturalism---at least not for the shows he helms. That's part of why he and playwright Nick Payne work so well together. Over the past three years, the British compatriots have collaborated on a number of thought-provoking productions. Now they're both making their Broadway debuts with Manhattan Theatre Club's...

By LINDA BUCHWALD In Fiasco Theater's production of Into The Woods, now at Roundabout's Laura Pels Theater, the handle of a suitcase flopping back and forth can make music. So can the chime of a grandfather clock.  This scaled-down production of Stephen Sondheim's 1987 musical, which follows a group of fairy tale characters past the end of...

By MARK BLANKENSHIP In one way or another, most of us compete with our friends. Maybe we feel relieved that our jobs make us happier or that our marriages seem healthier. Maybe we feel the slightest bit smug when we understand a political reference and they don't. Living in Western society, it's just hard to avoid that kind of one-upmanship. But...
