    Life Is a Broadway Play, Old Chum

    Given the vroom-vroom of their current go-round on stage, it's possible that, even with the theatrical equivalent of a road map, you might not be able to keep track of Kander and Ebb these days. Critically acclaimed revivals of the songwriting team's...

    Shiny Happy Canvases

    The canvases of the American realist painter Janet Fish are so vibrant, so shimmering with light, energy, and bright, saturated colors, that to call them "still lifes" fails to do them justice. And yet Fish's dominant subject matter is the stuff of t...

    Bent Outof Shape

    When a play's title is The Adjustment, chances are the playwright will be suggesting a monumental shift in attitude or perspective on the part of one or more characters. In Michael T. Folie's new work, recently opened at the Florida Stage, tiny adjus...

    Shtick Shift

    If you had a conventional grammar school education and watch a little Nick at Nite, chances are you don't think of Sebastian Cabot as the discoverer of the New World. According to The Complete History of America (abridged), however, it was this Engli...

    Crash, Bang, Ewwwww

    The human body has always fascinated David Cronenberg, the Canadian filmmaker who's the inspiration and catalyst for "Spectacular Optical," a group exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami. For Cronenberg the body is an alarmingly ...

    The Ghostwritten Henry James

    From the works of Edgar Allan Poe to Hollywood's The Fly, classic American ghost stories indulge our fascination with the decay of the body. They're overrun with maggoty cadavers, telltale hearts, and monsters that stalk us through dark alleys, graph...

    Not So Dynamic Duo

    Nobody knows if Scott Joplin ever knew Irving Berlin. In The Tin Pan Alley Rag, Mark Saltzman's well-meaning musical, however, the two composers not only meet cute (Joplin, disguised as a composer's agent, appears in the office where Berlin works as ...

    Love Is a Bumper Car

    Love may indeed be a fragile thing, but its clumsy male and female protagonists can't help "endlessly crashing into each other like two bumper cars." That's the observation of one character in the musical revue I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change,...

    Zen and the Art of Health-Care Maintenance

    "Eating Monkey Brains, The Baboon Nurse and Other Tales," Robert Morrison's audacious one-man show at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Lake Worth, is pretty much an all-or-nothing proposition. If you like one piece in this exhibition, which is as pr...

    Romeo and Juliet in Technicolor

    Nobody who's seen the off-Broadway version of The Fantasticks at New York City's Sullivan Street Playhouse will recognize the set of the appealing new production at the Hollywood Playhouse. (That's a lot of us, given the 15,000 or so performances the...

    What We Talk About When We Talk About Theater

    In 1964, when I was five years old, my father told me that Patty Duke didn't have a twin. Naturally I recognized this information for what it was -- a bald-faced lie. Every week on The Patty Duke Show anyone could see there were two teenage girls, no...

    A Woman of the People

    Twelve years ago Lily Tomlin opened her mouth and launched a thousand monologues. The 1986 Broadway success of The Search For Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe spawned a generation of self-styled storytellers, from the cutthroat visionary por...

    The Two Tenors

    Music, as a theater insider once put it, is the food of love. Opera, on the other hand, is a series of naughty sexual escapades, repeatedly slammed doors, and horny bellhops. At least, those are the elements that drive Lend Me a Tenor, Ken Ludwig's 1...

    Little Shop of Wonders

    That Screwball Family of Yours

    There's a moose in the guest bedroom in Michael McKeever's new comedy, 37 Postcards. The animal never makes an appearance on stage (a taxidermist crossed its path long before the play begins), but it does take part in the events that transpire when A...
