You got yer ADD, yer ADHD, yer PTSD, yer OCD and now yer O.P.C. at the A.R. T.! The title stands for  "Obsessive Political Correctness,"  a syndrome that plagues the compulsively sensitive, and finds its expression in a world premiere production by author, activist, & Tony-Award winning playwright of "The Vagina Monologues" Eve Ensler, who [...]

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

By | October 27th, 2014|Theater|2 Comments

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 thriller about the very first surgery performed under anesthesia in 1846 under the "dome" at MGH, the real story is fascinating, but the [...]

THEATER REVIEW: “RED”

By | January 17th, 2012|Theater|2 Comments

The best show onstage in Boston right now stars the dizzyingly talented Thomas Derrah as abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko in RED at the SpeakEasy Stage Company.  Don't worry if you know nothing about painting; the 2010 Tony Award-winning show by John Logan and flawlessly directed by David R. Gammons is an extraordinarily [...]

The Lyric Stage Company has a hit on its hands: SUPERIOR DONUTS! Director Spiro Veloudos said to me at intermission, "If you choose the right cast, your work is done-- just step aside and let them do what they do." Well this cast gets it done-- they make the donuts-- and how. The masterful ensemble [...]

A revolutionary production of Ibsen's classic A DOLL'S HOUSE featuring really tall women and really small men--40-53 inches high to be exact!--recently had its Boston premiere at ARTS EMERSON's Cutler Majestic.  MABOU MINES DOLLHOUSE  took the absurdity and inequity of women who are treated as dolls in a society of "small" men--and made it the [...]
