The Golden Bride brings the history of musicals to life --- If the 1923 musical The Golden Bride were being developed today, then someone would probably cut the song "A Greeting from the New Russia."

Well… like Parsons, who will be 89...

This season, actresses liberate themselves via playwriting --- If you're an actor seeking a great role, then you may want to write it yourself. Just ask performer-turned-playwright Nandita Shenoy.

A new play digs into apartment envy --- A Better Place takes audiences into the world of NYC apartment living, where fantasy and reality collide in a clash of socially coded cabinets, artfully decorated living rooms, and the watchful, curious, and potentially critical eyes of neighbors and realtors.
