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...

Two days into rehearsals for Lift at 59E59, director John Marshall III got stuck in an elevator. Most people entombed in a metal box might feel alarmed, claustrophobic, or at the very least, concerned. Instead, Marshall was thrilled. "I think the people running the building probably thought I was crazy," he says. "I'm like, 'Don't hurry, it's ok! It's...
