    Lucky Lindy

    It shouldn't be so hard to catch up with Frankie Manning. The man turns 85 this month, but like that damn battery bunny he just won't stop. First he's teaching in England, then in Hawaii. Finally I corner him in a changing room at Dance Space, where,...

    In and Out

    In light of teenagers who skirt their school's exterior to avoid those inside, it's difficult to cruise the corridors of Argentinean Guillermo Kuitca's 1998 floor-plan paintings without wondering who grants whom the right of way. The paintings resemb...

    Prison Prayers - Mabou Mines Summons the Ghosts of Beln

    A woman swishes a broom delicately across the floor, as if trying to blow away the accumulated dust of history. Soon, she begins to thwack it with an almost giddy force, slapping out a drum-brush beat that punctuates a strangely lilting plaint, sung ...

    While the nature-versus-nurture debate drones on in the background much like a TV turned up just loud enough to be pretend company, author Barbara Gowdy questions hownot iflife and family change people. She's a curious, mischievous, but ultimately ...

    Night Duty

    It is one of my favorite walks," the narrator of Melitta Breznik's haunting novel Night Duty reports, "from here on up to the cemetery on the hill." When an unnamed narrator in postwar Austrian fiction goes for a walk, thoughts of death are never f...

    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...

    Rank Stranger

    A ferocious energy possesses writer-performer Stanya Kahn. Eyes flashing, mouth straining, feet skittering, she seems to move even when she's still and to speak even when she's silent. The muscle and might of her onstage presence greatly camouflage...

    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...

    The Ultimate Terrorists

    Weapons proliferation used to be welcome in official circles. The U.S. clung to its nuclear power, stockpiling it faster than anyone else. But with American weapons superiority now unquestioned, policy makers have a new worry: nuclear, chemical, and ...

    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...

    Renewing R&J

    Choreographers can't stay away from Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet score; new ballet versions of Shakespeare's tragic lovers appear with regularity. Mavens can bounce between two radically different versions this week: as ABT winds up its run of Kennet...

    Misfits and losers: before a word is written, they're a drama unto themselves. She chafes against her surroundings and is rebuffed. Scorned, he picks up a pistol or jabs a needle in his arm. In Dael Orlandersmith's solo The Gimmick, a poor fat black ...

    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 ...

    The camera closes in on Sandman Sims's rueful face; nowadays, he says, young black men aren't interested in tapping. The year was 1978, in the film No Maps on My Taps. Things have picked up. Six guys join the phenomenal Savion Glover and funk princes...

    Think of dance in Ireland, and you're likely to imagine step dancers in green tunics. The modern niche there is practically nonexistent, but John Scott's eight-year-old, Dublin-based ensemble, comprising performers from various countries, brings to N...
