    Rude America

    Mark Caldwell's book contains an inventory of riotous, boorish behavior, from Titanic passenger J. Bruce Ismay elbowing "his way into a lifeboat past women and children" to the United Airlines stewardess who was so rude that she drove an investment b...

    Hot Springs - Diverse Summer Fare Hits City

    Could this be a Jewish wedding? Maybe. The crowd carries a man and a woman high on its shoulders. People kick up their heels while klezmer music wails its irresistible rhythms. But there's no "story," and the dancers are all Asian. No reason for su...

    Drive Time

    Sometimes the art world resembles a freeway where the artists are cars. There are on ramps and off ramps; vehicles are constantly entering and exiting. Once merged they move at speeds ranging from cautious to reckless, changing lanes continuously or ...

    Twofer

    Even though most of John Armleder's and Sylvie Fleury's works are dated 1999, one immediately senses dj vu, mostly because this recapitulation comprises new versions of works produced throughout the '90s. Hallmarking this look at interlocking lei...

    Garage Music - The Wooster Groups Emerging Artist Series

    Two black-lit paintings of staring cyclops hang suspended. On a video screen a tiny crown twists itself into words. A looped recording emits snippets of conversation, intercut with white noise. A man steps onstage. He plays a few notes on a harmonica...

    Cold Comfort

    In the opening moments of Uncle Vanya, the disaffected Doctor Astrov wonders, as Chekhov characters often do, "What are people going to say a hundred years from now? We're supposed to be paving the way for them. You think they'll admire us for the wa...

    The American Revolution

    Though history plays have never really been America's cup of tea, Kirk Wood Bromley has set himself the seemingly impossible task of writing a straightforward dramatic account of the American Revolution in verse! No, this is neither a case of lunat...

    Erotic City

    Samuel R. Delany never ceases to surprise his readers, mainly because he writes astonishingly well about almost anything. Convinced that both "high" and "low" culture are equally valid as pedagogic tools, his two newest projects include a unified due...

    The Bride Wore Red

    The shrew is a small, nasty animal of the rodent family, once common in some rural areas of England and New England; extending your hand toward it is not recommended, as its teeth are capable of slicing off a good chunk of human finger. How this unpl...

    Macbeth

    The bridges, lawns, and concrete paths of Fort Tryon Park may not much resemble the moors, heaths, and woods of medieval Scotland, but don't tell Gorilla Rep. The Downtown troupe, which has produced Shakespeare in a variety of parks for 10 years now...

    It Takes Time

    Something very bad has happened. A few frisky peasant women in bright blue and white dresses have been caught knitting on the palace grounds, where needles are banned! It's Princess Aurora's 20th birthday, and should she prick her finger, a fairy's c...

    Bull Market

    The phrase suicide dive doesn't resonate well on Wall Street, where it evokes grisly images of the 1929 crash. It bugs Elizabeth Streb, too. It's an old gymnastics term, she says, and like much language about movement it reeks of cultural bias. "Som...

    Resident Alien

    Rirkrit Tiravanija's art is like a fungus. As with mold, mildew, and mushrooms, it is parasitical, lacks the artistic equivalent of true chlorophyll, grows virtually anywhere, and is mysteriously beautiful. Tiravanija has insinuated his installation...

    The Cut-Up

    Today's global village is one vast collage, in which weird juxtapositions and disjointed sensations arrive with the regularity of the morning paper. In this context, surrealism's orchestrated disruptions of everyday life can sometimes seem quaint...

    The Executors Song

    If dead men tell no tales, they certainly don't finish novels, particularly those 40-odd years in the making. Suffice to say, all claims that the version of Ralph Ellison's Juneteenth cobbled together by literary executor John Callahan is Ellison's l...

    Missing Persons

    It's hard to imagine the same universe produced two playwrights as seemingly opposed as Neil LaBute and Naomi Wallace. In this corner we have LaBute, a convert to Mormonism and Mametisms, whose three one-act plays just opened under the title Bash. La...
