Blackbird

I knew nothing about the play when I sat down in my seat, however I was glued by moment one. For the first time this season, I was grabbing my date’s leg in anxiety for the characters. The entire audience was strapped in, and taken on a roller-coaster that, regardless of the ending, the journey was the beauty of it. Run to see this play that is enormously brave and masterfully produced.

Once Upon A Mattress

This production’s fearlessness to be exactly what it is and not to try to be anything that it is not is what led it to its pure, simple two-and-a-half hours of nostalgic theatre. It’s got laughs, dances, drag-queens, facial contortion, sex jokes, and the heart of a child.

Gigantic

This show is delightfully entertaining, but it ironically lacks sustenance or the meat and potatoes of the theatre. It the kind of theatre that lacks a thesis, and if you’ll pardon the pun, with such a heavy topic as the socially-relevant childhood obesity in America, how can you fail to take a stance on it.

Despite the distractions of the chorus of circus-folk, flipping and dancing, the show is two acts of pure, theatrical, jaw-dropping, hair-raising, old-fashion, entertainment.

iOW@

The sum of its parts is stunning; The whole is even better. Go see the new musical play “iOW@” at Playwrights Horizons as it is to surely prompt thinking that no piece of theatre has ever done before. As nonsensical as it may seem, it has audiences talking about it for days after the curtain fell.

Clinton The Musical

This 90-minute comedic musical captures the life of Bill and Hillary amidst the president’s two terms in office, complete with WhiteWater, HealthCare Reform, and Monica. No situation is off limits, and no joke is too cheap. It balances the line of stupidity and pure hilarity (Hillarity.) But is worth the trip to New World Stages.
