Leslye Headland and Trip Cullman reunite for their third play --- The last time playwright Leslye Headland and director Trip Cullman collaborated, the show climaxed with a cathartic tap dance. The pair has reunited with The Layover, running through September 18 at Second Stage, and this time things end very, very differently. "When we did our first...

Director Austin Pendleton on the quirks in the Mint's latest revival --- The oddest element of a play – the detail that seems weirdly out of place – can be a key to understanding it. In Miss Julie, for instance, it's startling that the taut crisis among three characters in a kitchen is interrupted by a throng of carousing servants. But...

Topical, urgent plays should be developed (and produced) quickly --- An innocent black man is harassed, profiled, and beaten by police in an American town riven by racial and class division. Protesters march; violence erupts. That's the premise for Running on Fire, Aurin Squire's searing new play-in-progress. I saw a workshop production last month...
