THEATER ROUND UP: KING LEAR, ASSASSINS, AIDA

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

MOVIE: ST. VINCENT

Bill Murray is the screen’s funniest, most endearing curmudgeon.  Here in ST. VINCENT as the title character, he’s all pockmarked and rumply, biting the head off every cheerful do-gooder who has the nerve to make conversation. But that title is part of the

THEATER: “BENT” “FAR FROM HEAVEN”

Joyce Kulhawik October 1, 2014 0

  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
