    Whine Me Dine Me

    Let's assume that fiction writers have some say about what traits to bestow upon their protagonists, that the muse doesn't just arrive unbidden and deliver a character whole. And let's suppose that three seemingly bright women, two of them well into ...

    Rebirth in Venice

    There's hardly anything wrong with the 48th Venice Biennale. No obtuse curatorial statements. No social-issue faux pas. It's smooth, generous, professional, and filled with grandly realized works in fabulously decrepit spaces. Even the catalogue, org...

    Art of Darkness

    A cornered man plots his own demise. Lowlifes circle with sharpened knives. Pasts are murky, names false. Murderers, thieves, and seducers trade lies. And all slink about in a postcivilization darkness. These are the elements of Shem Bitterman's The ...

    Love's Labour's Loud

    Imagine if the original cast of the movie Fame decided in their heyday to present a pop-opera adaptation of Shakespeare's most beloved romantic tragedy. Think flamboyant urban costumes (nearly everyone has a boa), a lush rhythm-and-blues soundtrack, ...

    Hostile Witness

    It's time to get angry again." So writes Germaine Greer in her introduction to The Whole Woman. She may have intended it as a wake-up call, but more than anything, this book appears to be Greer's bid to matter again. In 1970, The Female Eunuch made t...

    Banjee

    In A.B. Lugo's sassy drama Banjee, you don't really get much more than its provocative naked-torso promo card promises: "Angel and Tony are young, tough . . . and for sale. Just don't tell their girlfriends." Treat it like you're watching a telenovel...

    All That Jazz

    Jazz and ballet are uneasy partners. Getting down isn't part of the classical lexicon. On NYCB's "Tri-bute to Ellington" program, Wynton Marsalis blows soul out his trumpet. His score for Peter Martins's 1993 Jazz is as rich as a cake laced with bour...

    Dialed Down

    The company Elisa Monte started with David Brown in 1981 has finally added his name to its title, and several of his new dances to its roster. This is a good thing; his calmer style is a great counterpoint to hers. Monte launched her choreographic ca...

    Danes Addiction

    For many directors, Hamlet represents a kind of Mount Everesta climb every bit as daunting as King Lear, though somehow a more necessary test of one's artistic mettle. No matter that the challenges of such a text are Herculean, starting with the que...

    Pattern & Dissipation

    I am now going to beat a dead horse. What is a painting at its simplest? A surface with some kind of image or motif applied to it. Yes, I know you can cut holes in it, hang it from the ceiling, stick things on it, and push it toward sculpture; you ca...

    though Evelyne Daitz is fond of puns, this one was unintentional. When she named her early summer group show "Clothes Off," she didn't know it would also be the Witkin Gallery's closing exhibition. As Witkin's owner and director since the 1984 de...
