Histrionics Halliday Style

BY DAVID NOH | Everything just happens to me. I never have had to go after anything,” Andy Halliday told me. The actor turned playwright is brimming over with excitement these days over the opening of his latest opus, “Up the Rabbit Hole,” which just opened at Theater for the New City (see David Kennerley’s review).

Women on a Mission

Women on a Mission

BY CHRISTOPHER BYRNE | Two key factors have had a serious impact on Broadway ticket prices in the past 10 years. Dynamic pricing, a standard practice in sports and airlines, has allowed producers to vary prices by the performance. Ticket reselling, legal in New York since 2007, means that you can almost certainly get into […]

Divas and Tough Guys

Divas and Tough Guys

BY DAVID NOH | I don’t think I am alone in regretting that I was not in New York in 1962 to catch Judy Garland’s much-lauded Carnegie Hall concert. I am able to say, however, that I was at the Nederlander Theatre this past Sunday, September 24, to see Patti LuPone at the Broadway Cares/ Equity […]

Antonio Ramos’ Almodóvarian Vision

BY DAVID NOH | For those who love dance, the films of Pedro Almodóvar, and the human body, I suggest “Almodóvar Dystopia,” Antonio Ramos’ choreographic, multi-media vision, playing at Dixon Place through September 30. The bearded, ebullient Ramos described his piece as “a general view of Almodóvar’s work, and it’s more about his process. Some of […]

We Can Still Fly

We Can Still Fly

BY DAVID KENNERLEY | More often than not, theatrical meditations on mortality tend to be dismal affairs. But red-hot playwright Sarah Ruhl, who has earned plaudits for plays such as “Stage Kiss” and “Dead Man’s Cell Phone,” has solved the problem in her latest effort by expertly grafting on elements of the beloved children’s story “Peter […]

The Past Is Prologue

The Past Is Prologue

BY CHRISTOPHER BYRNE | The new revue “Prince of Broadway” has its charms, notably in the high power talent on the stage singing their hearts out in a progression of songs from shows spanning six decades. It should be enjoyed for its variety show appeal rather than as a coherent musical — or a thematic revue, […]

The Object of Her Affection

The Object of Her Affection

BY DAVID KENNERLEY | If the Flea Theater’s artistic mission is to create “a joyful hell in a small space,” then with their latest production, consider it mission accomplished. “Inanimate,” by Nick Robideau, tackles a taboo topic you may never knew existed: objectum sexuality, where a person forms an intensely romantic attachment to an object such […]
