    Kill My Wife -- Please!

    Roughly the size of a doublewide trailer, the performance space at Hollywood Boulevard Theatre is so small you can stare into the eyes of the actors, size up their varicose veins, and follow the trajectories of their spit with dumbfounding intimacy. ...

    Who Needs a Curator

    On my way over to the Gallery Center in Boca Raton, I expected to find a row of quaint little shops side by side in some trendy shopping mall. With any luck one gallery might have some art worth getting excited about. What I found instead was a spraw...

    Hold the Pickles, Hold the Poison

    Of the potentially kooky types of people that could be dumped into a play -- lawyers, clairvoyants, fast-food servers, and dying parents -- the most unwieldy are the clairvoyants. Even if an audience buys the notion of second sight, the playwright i...

    Eviction Notice

    If you sat through three hours of the Tony Award-taking, Pulitzer Prize-winning, mega-publicity-hyped musical that promised to change the face of Broadway forever, only to wonder, "Is that all there is?" -- read on. If you heard about the ballyhoo la...

    There's Something Fishy Going On

    If you happen to stop by the Schacknow Museum of Fine Art in Coral Springs, resist the urge to take a closer look at the austere, enigmatic sculptures dotting the center of the main gallery when you first enter. They're worth waiting for. Proceed, in...

    Afterlife in the Big City

    Antisemitropolis is the city Hitler never built. Blame that on playwright Dan Kagan, who imagines it as the name the Nazis gave their section of heaven -- "a place with only people like them," explains Jerry, a character in Kagan's spirited black com...

    James Cameron, Eat Your Heart Out

    Icebergs figure prominently in Titanic, Christopher Durang's absurdly wild 1974 deconstruction of family life, but then so do hedgehogs, marmalade, and tortured slices of Wonder Bread. There's no Leonardo DiCaprio, but there is a Captain. He's the on...

    Call of the Wild

    Realism is alive and reasonably well at Call of Africa's Native Visions Gallery in Fort Lauderdale, which specializes not in the tribal art of Africa as you might expect, but in wildlife paintings, prints, and sculptures. One owner is from South Afri...

    Moscow on the Gulf

    Crack open a playwright whose career has just gotten under way, and you'll more than likely find a dreamer wrestling with the ghost of Anton Chekhov. American theater festivals are littered with reinventions of The Three Sisters, the Chekhov classic ...

    Shaped Up, Shipped Out

    Moments after the legendary showboat Cotton Blossom pulls up to its Natchez, Mississippi, berth, skipper-cum-thespian Cap'n Andy declares, "You've never seen a show like this before." But chances are you've seen many shows like this before. Indeed, y...

    Ghosts in the Machines

    Performance art or happening? Light-and-space art or installation? The mixed-media art at Lumonics, also known as the Tanner Studio, resolutely resists categorizing. It's all of the above and then some. The gallery is full of sculptures, some of whic...

    It Takes Two to Tangle

    When Seinfeld fans joke ad nauseum that the popular TV show is "about nothing," they mean that the sitcom doesn't have a traditional story hook. There's no overarching premise along the lines of, say, "Widowed dad raises three kids with help from a J...

    Apples and Oranges

    Everything but the Kitchen Sink might make a better name for Art Frenzie, a new Wilton Manors gallery crammed with an amazing amount, not to mention variety, of art. Paintings and prints cover the walls, of course, but they're also hung from the ceil...

    He Wrote, She Wrote

    Valentine's Day is long gone, but the utterly charming revival of the 1963 musical She Loves Me at the Actors' Playhouse in Coral Gables proves that romance is lasting. Certainly the story of feuding shop clerks who unwittingly fall for each other as...

    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...

    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...
