Sarah DeLappe's new play takes audiences inside the insular world of teenage girls --- Although Sarah DeLappe played the sport in her youth, the inspiration for her new play The Wolves, about a suburban girls' soccer team, came from far off the field at Here and Elsewhere, an exhibit of contemporary Arab art at The New Museum. "As I was walking around...

The Irish play Quietly finds a different voice Off Broadway --- Since it moved across the ocean, Quietly has gotten less quiet. "There's only a shadow of the silences left," says co-star Declan Conlon. "The dynamic has changed." That may sound surprising. After all, this production of Owen McCafferty's play, about a tense reunion between former...

Why Men On Boats isn't a realistic play --- There are no boats in Men on Boats. Sure, there are suggestions of boats – small, boat-ish props that the actors hold as they simulate a journey through the Green and Colorado Rivers. But even while they're "floating," we see the performers' legs planted firmly on the floor. Things get even less...

Why I'll see anything by the Bard at the Delacorte --- As a self-professed theatre lover, I have an embarrassing confession to make: I don't always love seeing Shakespeare. I've read his plays enthusiastically, I adore his language, and I have a deep appreciation of his characters. (My dog was named Caliban.) But when I watch the Bard onstage, sometimes...

J.T. Rogers blends facts and fiction about the Oslo Accords --- Playwright J.T. Rogers practically specializes in turning major political events into compelling stage dramas. He's done it with the genocide in Rwanda in the 90s (The Overwhelming) and the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan in the 80s (Blood and Gifts). But while it continues this thematic...

That can be thrilling, of course, and nobody wants the characters in Shaw or Williams or Wasserstein to stop talking. Still: Playwright Bess...
