    Holy Daze

    Come the millennium, depending on your druthers, you may be enjoying a champagne toast atop the Eiffel Tower, copulating madly in front of Dick Clark on TV, or joining a prayerful throng of believers who expect to be vacuumed up into heaven. Perhaps ...

    Playing It Again

    This year, there are no new Broadway musicals. The only thing on the 1999 Tony ballot that could arguably count as a new musical is Parade, a "serious" work, wan and misguided (albeit by gifted artists), produced in a nonprofit subscription theater l...

    Bullet Theory

    Before I lock and load, let me state my bias. I'm a card-carrying member of the ACLU and the NRA. I don't want the state in my uterus or my gun collection. Having guns controlled by the government is like having abortion rights regulated by men. As w...

    A Surfeit of Swans - Peter Martins Revamps a Classic

    It's a miracle that the dowager Swan Lake has survived so many face-lifts since her debut in 1877. The old girl has great bones: Tchaikovsky's sumptuous music, sublime passages of choreography created by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov in the 1890s, a c...

    Inside Job

    Museums are strange. They're dead, they're alive. They're graveyards, shrines, and storage rooms. Nothing much happens there on the face of it. Usually you go alone; mostly you're silent, almost invisiblealthough you never completely disappear. You ...

    School Daze

    For smug New Yorkers, the name New Jersey conjures up visions of urban blight, industrial wastelands, and placid suburbs. Who knew that, 40 years ago, New Brunswick was a hotbed of radical artistic activity? A show now at the Newark Museum resurrect...

    'The 7-Minute Series'

    The simple premise has worked for the last six years: get a slew of downtown theater-makers to create eight pieces, then present all of them on the same night. No, it's not a typical day at Nada, it's the Ontological's "7-Minute Series." Most of ...
