    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...

    You're on Your Own

    I knew next to nothing about Uruguayan art when I set out to see the "3rd Uruguayan Art Exhibition" on display at the Broward County Main Library. And now, having seen the show, I know... only slightly more than I did going in, other than the obvious...

    You'll Die Laughing

    Actor Peter Haig embraces his role as Vincent Vincent, the pivotal character in the British farce Natural Causes, as though he were gorging on the theatrical equivalent of Thanksgiving dinner. Making his way through each savory episode, Haig samples ...

    Psycho Analysis

    Hollywood is openly neurotic about its hatred of psychotherapy. Witness, most recently, Barbra Streisand's ridiculous Dr. Susan Lowenstein in The Prince of Tides who aggressively mischaracterizes the entire profession with each flick of her nails. In...

    Little Country, Big Output

    One of the mysteries of 20th-century art is the remarkable outpouring of creativity that has come from a seemingly unlikely place: Haiti. For nearly half a century, a steady stream of art has flowed from the tiny Caribbean nation, which has a populat...

    Losers and Laughs

    Simpatico may be the funniest play about losers in Sam Shepard's entire prolific output. Long before we meet them, these characters have lost the loves of their lives, aged without grace, and in some cases suffered devastating reversals of fortune. I...

    Between Interest and Boredom

    Summer theater is the sort of oxymoron that conjures up farcical epithets such as "dramatic hot dog stand," to use the term coined by the late George Jean Nathan, the esteemed American theater critic. Or "straw-hat trail," the term used by others to ...

    Home Is Where the Art Is

    Even if Frederic Clay Bartlett had never picked up a paintbrush, he would merit at least a footnote in the history of modern art for his many other art-related ventures. Muralist, architect, and interior designer, the Chicago-born Bartlett spent much...

    Out of the Closet, Into the Fire

    The most startling scene in Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde -- making its Florida premiere at the Caldwell Theatre Company in Boca Raton -- is the one that opens the second act. It's set on the stage of a 20th-century talk show, wher...

    Getting a Kick Out of Cole

    In his five-decade career, Cole Porter wrote songs for Fanny Brice, Fred Astaire, Ethel Merman, Louis Armstrong, Jimmy Durante, and Bert Lahr, to name just a few. One measure of his virtuosity as a composer, however, is that no one singer really owns...

    Sweatin' to the Hackneyed

    Milton Berle isn't actually backstage at The Last Supper, but his voice is, if only on Memorex. The Borscht Belt comedian has loaned his name and endorsement to Artie Butler's hapless and ambitious new musical about a hapless but ambitious guy trying...

    Stupid Is as Stupid's Written

    Since there aren't many coming-out stories about lesbians in Hoboken, New Jersey, it's easy to imagine that the folks at the Humana Festival of New American Plays in Louisville sat up and took notice when Wendy Hammond sent in the script for Julie Jo...

    No Pane, No Gain

    You won't find the work of glass artist Jackson Hall in any South Florida gallery or museum -- not yet, anyway. A recent transplant from San Francisco, Hall has spent the past two months getting settled in Fort Lauderdale, where he has a small studio...

    Timing Is Everything

    There's only one genuinely dramatic moment in Cloud Tectonics, but, boy, is it a doozy. A man leaves a room and enters it moments later. His clothes are different. He's carrying letters written while he was away. To him, two years have unfolded in th...

    Ride 'Em Valkyries

    Imagine country-western heartthrob Clint Black inhabiting the body of Wagner's romantic hero Siegfried and you'll get the spirit of Das Barbecu, the Hee-Haw-inspired adaptation of Wagner's Ring cycle. Yes, that Ring cycle. It's the same nineteenth-ce...

    The Outsiders

    Hannah and Her Demons

    There's nothing like a loud bang at the end of Act One to make you impatient for the end of the intermission so that you can scurry back to your seat and find out what happens next. Especially if that bang shreds every notion you had about the play u...

    River of Images

    There are no other Everglades in the world. The opening line of the late Marjory Stoneman Douglas' famous The Everglades: River of Grass kept echoing through my mind as I walked among the 22 black-and-white photographs that make up "A Portrait of...
