    A Conductor's Moral Discord

    At the center of Taking Sides is a rube, a crass insurance salesman to be exact. A guy who doesn't know Toscanini from teriyaki. A man who sleeps through Beethoven's Fifth Symphony, "Because Beethoven's Fifth Symphony bores me shitless," he explains ...

    They Came, They Served, They Blew It

    A sense of deja vu hangs like a pall over "Eclectic Collectives," and with good reason. This first group exhibition by the New River Arts & Crafts Association, now at ArtServe in Fort Lauderdale, is dominated by the kind of bland, innocuous art so of...

    A Spider Without Bite

    A movie, a novel, a Broadway musical, and a stage play. The only popular dramatic form Kiss of the Spider Woman hasn't conquered is the TV sitcom. Given its high-concept idea -- a fussy homosexual and an idealistic politico sharing a small space and ...

    Censor-y Overload

    After the priest has cut out the tongue of the Marquis de Sade, he presents the meaty organ to the asylum's caretaker encased in a black box. Handing it over he comments, "It was so long and serpentlike that I had to wrap it around a dowel." Well, I ...

    Blasting the Stereo

    Works by two artists with very different styles and very similar concerns are currently on display in a joint exhibition at the Schmidt Center Gallery -- if you can find the place. I spent close to an hour wandering around the confusing, poorly marke...

    Saved by the Actors

    This is the season during which British playwright David Hare is printing his own currency on Broadway. In April the much ballyhooed The Blue Room, starring a naked Nicole Kidman, will be joined by a New York production of Amy's View, featuring theat...

    Saturday Night Dead

    A woman in Steve Martin's Picasso at the Lapin Agile makes this comment about the famous painter: "He says that occasionally there is a 'Picasso' and he is him." You can substitute the word genius for Picasso and get the sense of what this phrase mea...

    Rubble Rouser

    Looking at the paintings of Purvis Young, I kept getting the sense, sometimes unsettling, that I'd seen some of the imagery before. A few dramatic strokes of blue and green paint on paper, for instance, summoned Salvador Dali's take on Don Quixote. A...

    Sexual Politics

    Imagine you're watching an early play by an obscure playwright -- say, a farce with a plot that's difficult to take seriously. Perhaps it contains a case of mistaken identity, at least one sharp-tongued female character, and some confusion about the ...

    The Age of Tallulah

    Add the late Tallulah Bankhead to the list of middle-aged women throwing themselves into the national political fray this year. Though the celebrated actress -- as currently portrayed in the American premiere of Tallulah by movie star Kathleen Turner...

    Minding Her Own Beeswax

    With a work as dauntingly large and otherworldly as the title piece in "Madeline Denaro: New Forms," an exhibit on view at the Museum of Art in Fort Lauderdale, it's revealing to watch people approach and appraise the piece. Some stand a few feet awa...

    Shooting Blanks

    "First of all, when you've got a gun," Stephen Sondheim points out in his musical Assassins, "everybody pays attention." That's for sure, as audience members experiencing the third-act explosion in a classic drama such as Chekhov's Three Sisters can ...

    Stripped of Spirit

    She's the Medea of all stage mothers, the most frightening diva of the American musical theater. That would be Mama Rose, of course, the stardom-fixated monster at the center of Gypsy. Since 1959 audiences have clung to her poisonous apron strings, h...

    Hollywood and Vine

    What first appears to be a huge pile of debris sits just outside the entrance to the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood. If you're approaching the museum from its main parking lot, you might not even notice this mass of vines and tree limbs. But if ...

    Between Opera and a Rocky Place

    When damsels with golden ring curls find themselves tied to railroad trestles by mustachioed villains -- or, in the case of Little Mary Sunshine, strapped to a tree by a vicious Indian -- most audience members know that the lady in peril will be resc...

    Star-Crossed Druthers

    In the second half of Steve Dietz's new play, Rocket Man, time moves backward in an enchanting fashion. The elderly are the newest people on Earth. Teenagers, veterans by comparison, choose the parents who will care for them as they grow younger and ...

    Grand Illusions

    A faint but unmistakable electrical hum was in the air when I stepped into the Boca Raton Museum of Art to see "Richard Anuszkiewicz: Retrospective." The buzz no doubt came from the air conditioning or lighting system, but it could just as easily hav...

    Shufflin' Off to Hollywood

    Gavin MacLeod, erstwhile captain of the Love Boat, sails blithely through Moon Over Buffalo with an erect rubber nose. He's playing Cyrano de Bergerac. Or rather he's playing an actor playing Cyrano in Ken Ludwig's 1995 Broadway hit Moon Over Buffalo...

    A Dickens of a Duo

    Of all the repertory programs ever devised, the double bill playing this month at the New Theatre has got to be one of the most delightfully odd. Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol is bound to pop up somewhere this time of year, of course, but would ...

    Whale's Tale
