  • Dearth of a Salesman


    Dearth of a Salesman

    I should, I suppose, be grateful for small favors. The Broadway system that can make the tourists line up for a four-and-a-half-hour play, at $100 a pop, must be doing something right. The Iceman Cometh, being a great play, deserves sold-out houses, ...

    La Prxima Parada

    It's difficult to do community-based theater about the dreary desperation of "the people" without sinking into the dreariness and taking the audience with you. That's why playwright Carmen Rivera deserves praise for La Prxima Parada (The Next Stop)...

    Girl Group

    The Seattle-based ensemble 33 Fainting Spells, which showed Maria the Storm Cloud at Dance Theater Workshop, has its finger on the cultural zeitgeist as few American dance theater groups do. Composed of two unrelated, thirtyish women with the same la...

    Last Call

    When did queer culture replace mass arrests in front of St. Patrick's Cathedral with K-holes at the Morning Party? According to drag celebrity Linda Simpson, who wrote The Final Episode (P.S.122), drug binges trumped hunger strikes around 1994. Hosti...

    Depths of Memory - Recollecting Family Histories

    You may think you know a composition for cello quite well. Then you hear Yo-Yo Ma play it. Its colorations become richer, more nuanced. Images hitherto unnoticed glisten in its depths. Ma has said that working with Mark Morris and his dancers was "li...

    Poetry Boy

    It's not easy describing how Tere O'Connor mixes abstract movement and raw interior monologue. One California critic threw up her hands, calling him a "weirdmeister," so folks in the heartland must be truly baffled. Hi Everybody!, his newest piece, ...

    It Hurts: New York Art From Warhol to Now

    Art history, like all histories, starts with gossip more nasty stories about powerful, important people. Matthew Collings, in It Hurts, clearly loves such stories. Unfortunately, repeating a mess of them is all he does. His book fails miserably beca...

    Life Is Not Beautiful

    Whether the Andrei SerbanElizabeth Swados Fragments of a Greek Trilogy (La MaMa) can be regarded as seminal is debatable, although when it debuted 25 years ago it seemed as if it would be. A deconstruction/reconstruction of Sophocles and Euripides, ...

    Talking Points

    The world's as dramatic as ever if anything, more so these last few weeks but the theater's mired, inexplicably, in an age of diminished dramatic expectations. When we don't get graphic, arbitrary violence always more effective when kept offstage...

    Exhibit #9

    The wackiest of many outlandish moments in Exhibit #9, Tracey Wilson's cacophonous comedy, is the spectacle of Margaret Johnson, a young black bank executive, introducing her new "boyfriend," an inflatable doll, to her stunned middle-class family....

    Imitation of Life

    In the decade between the publication of The Ballad of Sexual Dependency (1986) and her retrospective at the Whitney (1996), Nan Goldin was, for better or worse, the major influence on young photographers. Seeing countless copies of her intensely per...

    Outer Space

    Zaha Hadid designs buildings that seem to defy the laws of gravity. The Iraqi-born architect, who was trained and lives in London, is known for visionary compositions of fragmentary, overlapping spaces that sweep the viewer up in restless, swirlin...

    Of Marvels - Three Generations of Artists Break Strange Ground

    For years, choreographer Erick Hawkins and composer Lucia Dlugoszewski explored each other's minds and serene yet breath-caught sensibilities. His dances conversed with her music. She might let a burst of motion fall into silence, or create a thunder...
