  • "Private Life" by Jane Smiley

    "Private Life" by Jane Smiley
    "Private Life" By Jane Smiley Random House, 336 pages, $26.95 Married life is generally a disappointment. If 'Madame Bovary' isn’t a cautionary enough testament to that rude fact of life, then there are the tut-tuts of the women in the knitting...

  • Theater review: 'FDR' at Pasadena Playhouse

     
    Few people would mistake Ed Asner for Franklin D. Roosevelt. (Fiorello La Guardia is the political figure most would say TV’s Lou Grant was born to play). But there’s no mistaking Asner’s reason for taking on the role of the......
  • 'Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson' on Broadway: What did the critics think?

     
    It's been a long road to Broadway for the new musical "Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson." Judging by the critical reaction so far, it was well worth the wait, for the most part. "Jackson" was staged at the Kirk Douglas Theatre......
  • 'Angels in America' at Signature Theatre Company: What did the critics think?

     
    One of the most anticipated New York theater events of the season isn't happening on Broadway, but at a small theater off the beaten tourist track. The Signature Theatre Company recently opened Tony Kushner's "Angels in America," a revival production........
  • Art review: Tom Allen at Richard Telles

  • Pee-wee Herman on Broadway: What did the critics think?

     
    It's been a long time since the Tim Burton movie, the television show and the sex scandal. Now Pee-wee Herman is back -- older and hopefully wiser, making his big Broadway debut this week in the newly rechristened Stephen Sondheim......

  • Shows you won't see on Broadway come January
