    Yeah, Right, Einstein!

    "A man walks into a bar." Standup comics have launched into routines with that line so often that it's no surprise comedian-turned-movie-actor Steve Martin chooses the same set-up to fuel the many laughs in his first effort as a playwright. Only in t...

    Nobody's Home

    The work of sculptor Duane Hanson exerts a powerful pull on people. It's not unusual to see a handful of museum visitors clustered around one of his life-size, detailed, uncannily realistic sculptures of the human figure, inspecting it with both amaz...

    Death, Where Is Thy Wit?

    Nothing brings theater to life like a little death. Let a doctor say someone has only a few months to live, and you've got drama. In recent years some of the best productions have posted alarming mortality rates. Gay characters, in particular, have s...

    Friend of the Little People

    In a professional career that lasted just more than a decade, Keith Haring not only proved to be one of the most prolific American artists of his generation, he also forged one of the most instantly recognizable, unmistakable styles in contemporary a...

    Look Ma, No Royalties

    Having to wait for one month out of the year to buy candy hearts with cute sayings imprinted on them is no big deal. After all, those hard little wafers have lost much of their appeal now that they're more likely to break my aging molars than attract...

    Undress Rehearsal

    In an example of last-minute housecleaning before the February ratings sweeps began, ABC network executives pulled the plug on the cop drama Cracker. While I liked the few episodes I saw about the raffish psychologist who solves homicides, I'm glad i...

    Brotherly Hate

    Touted as a comedy-thriller, Corpse! is more accurately a thriller-comedy in which the suspenseful plotting of Act I gives way to farce in Act II. Picture a film adaptation of an Agatha Christie mystery starring Benny Hill, and you'll have some idea ...

    Couch Potato Classicism

    The problem with "Sandro Chia: New Work" is not the art itself, some of which is quite impressive, but its presentation. The show, which runs through March 15 at the Boca Raton Museum of Art, feels haphazard, thrown together, as if someone had hastil...

    The Devil Made Him Do It

    The Othello Project, which is now on stage at the Florida Shakespeare Theatre in Coral Gables, takes its Deep South setting and part of its title from "The Mississippi Project," in which more than 800 college students from the North traveled down Sou...

    A Portrait of the Artist

    James Joyce's work is an acquired taste. Whereas the late Irishman's short-story collection Dubliners (1914) is an easy read, the experiments in style in his later novels have always banned them from my beach bag. Not willing to thread my way through...

    Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

    Gertrude Stein, no stranger to the art world, once famously dismissed sculpture by complaining that "one always has the bother of being able to walk around it." Harsh words, perhaps, but whenever I see some of the massive heaps of metal and stone foi...

    Give 'Em What They Want

    The recent referendum creating Miami-Dade County is just the latest sign the area is suffering from an identity crisis worse than Sally Field's in Sybil. While the county government proffers the Miami moniker as an all-purpose consumer label, many re...

    Brothers in Alms

    The convoluted political negotiations surrounding Pope John Paul II's trip to Cuba next week seem facile compared to the grave-robbing, relic-switching, and sundry ecumenical dirty tricks attendant to a papal visit in playwright Michael Hollinger's f...

    Small Wonder

    Some people call it the Black Box of Hollywood, a theater so tiny that its lobby consists of a table and two chairs located outside on the sidewalk. So tiny that the actors, working on a stage 27 feet wide by 15 feet deep, virtually perform in the la...

    Urban Contempo

    At a time when gang-related, drive-by shootings plague the nation's major cities, a 40-year-old musical in which two rival packs sit down to a war council at the local soda shop and order "Cokes all around" would seem hopelessly dated. Yet when a pol...

    The rooms in the paintings and prints of the young Colombian artist Homero Aguilar are empty -- at least for the moment. Someone may have just passed through, leaving a door ajar or a window open, or perhaps someone hesitates beyond the frame, just o...

    In 1996 Rent picked up the Pulitzer Prize for its rock and roll update of Puccini's La Boheme, edging out another work that has ties to the classical canon: Jon Marans' drama Old Wicked Songs. The latter play, about the life lessons a young pianist a...

    Paradise Found

    The juxtaposition, faintly surreal, reminds me of a shop I once saw in the rural Deep South, housing both a beauty salon and a hardware store. But Needlepoint Originals and Paradise Gallery (the italics appear right there on the business card), an un...
