A CHRISTMAS CAROL That Brings The Thrills — Review

It’s a thrilling start which suggests a fright-tastic, horror theater approach to Charles Dickens’s oft-theatricalized 1843 novella. Only for 30 or so spine-tingling minutes does this new adaptation, co-conceived by director Michael Arden and scenic/costume designer Dane Laffrey, live up to that promise.

This is a first-rate revival, a triumphant return to the spotlight for Tonya Pinkins, and a welcome reminder that Hansberry was leagues ahead of her contemporaries, and ourselves.

David Hare’s Straight Line Crazy arrives at The Shed after an acclaimed run in London, starring Ralph Fiennes in top form as New York City’s infamous don of infrastructure Robert Moses.

A mostly false, somewhat emotionally true recounting of her journey to stardom, it is the funniest thing onstage in New York this year.

THE KITE RUNNER Pulls a Weak String — Review

Remember the last Bush era? How dusty and militarized it all felt? Maybe that’s just how I was introduced to the country when I moved here in 2005. All footage of “the Arab world” was shot with an ugly, yellowed lens and all media surrounding it was either grossly propagandistic or, on the other side, pretty corny in its attempt to humanize the people. (Same thing happened with Mexico and the cartel-border of it all, but that’s another story).
