A vintage play asks contemporary questions about gender roles --- Like so many plays produced by the Mint Theater Company, which resurrects the work of neglected and forgotten playwrights, The New Morality feels awfully contemporary. Set on a houseboat that's floating in the Thames in 1911, it uses wry epigrams, a feisty heroine, and a drunken...

A few thoughts on making plays more inclusive --- So I was sitting at a matinee of Hamilton on Broadway, listening to Phillipa Soo sing the last few bars of the show, when something happened to me that never happens in the theatre: I wept. Openly. I'm talking about tears-rolling-down-my-cheeks weeping. Because I had just seen a three-hour musical...

Anna Ziegler's new play stages inescapable memories --- Plenty of plays break the fourth wall, with characters stepping outside the action to speak directly to the audience. It's the rare show, however, that lets characters break the fourth wall together. Yet that's that exactly what happens in A Delicate Ship, the new play by Anna Ziegler that's...

How Chris Myers' latest gig merged his professional, political and personal life --- Sometimes an actor seems born to play a role. In the case of Chris Myers, who won a 2014 Obie Award for his performance in An Octoroon, he was also an activist born to portray Jeffrey, a shy convicted murderer with a secret in Whorl Inside a Loop, currently playing...

A new dance-play evokes the remarkable life of Pearl S. Buck --- Daniel Ezralow's career has gone global in recent years, so it seems appropriate that he's directing and choreographing Pearl, a "multicultural dance-play" that's inspired by the life of Pearl S.
