Barbara Bleier and Austin Pendleton are together again at Pangea with a new show Beautiful Mistake. And are we not the better for it? I don’t know if audiences come to these two for the music (which is out of this world) or just to see these two bask in each other’s company. Who cares?
A zebra and a unicorn have a great deal in common but they are not the same. It might be tempting to take the extraordinarily rich and fully staged Groundhog Day currently on Broadway, as a mere remake of the 1993 film. It’s not. The film was a terrific zebra; the Broadway musical, is a kind of unicorn.
