THEATER: HAPPY DAYS

Joyce Kulhawik November 21, 2014 0

HAPPY DAYS are when we get to see a hugely gifted actress hold the stage almost alone, practically without moving, for two hours, and conjure up the entire universal human experience. That is EXACTLY what happened this week when Brooke Adams

THEATER ROUNDUP: ETHER DOME/MUCH ADO/IT FELT EMPTY/LANGUAGE OF ANGELS

Joyce Kulhawik October 27, 2014 2

There’s a whole lotta theater goin’ on– here’s my take in short: ETHER DOME presented by The Huntington Theatre Company at BU is neither a gas, nor did it put me to sleep. Billed as a medical

THEATER ROUND UP: KING LEAR, ASSASSINS, AIDA

Joyce Kulhawik October 23, 2014 2

The best theatre I’ve seen lately was a rambunctious KING LEAR presented by ARTS EMERSON and SHAKEPEARE’s GLOBE ON TOUR over at the Paramount. Shakespeare’s tragedy of a father who is blind to himself and

  Really GOOD and less good–my assessment of two plays now onstage in Boston. Let’s begin with the really “GOOD”– in capital letters– production of BENT at Zeitgeist Stage Company. It’s a tremendously moving production, keenly directed by David Miller, and much

THEATER: “EMILIE: La Marquise du Chatelet Defends Her Life Tonight”

Joyce Kulhawik September 16, 2014 0

The title is unwieldy–but in her day she wielded enough intellectual and sexual heat to amp up the already significant wattage of the Age of Enlightenment. Emilie du Chatelet should be a household name
