    Yanira Castro, Maura Nguyen Donohue, and Mei-Yin Ng all arrived on these shores in 1993 or 1994. Their concert "Bare" (La MaMa, closed) suggests that's the only thing they have in common. Castro's work is intellectual (Vulgar is inspired by Kierke...

    French Kisses

    Recently, I publicly read a story of mine about a man and woman whose experiments with sexual role-playing go awry when the woman feels the man is abusing her. She becomes frightened, then angry; they fight, reconcile, and go to sleep in each other's...

    Mister Satan's Apprentice

    The life of the musician on the road is by law supposed to be about geography blurrily shooting past and an endless stream of faces, few of them remembered. But it's quite a different experience in Adam Gussow's Mister Satan's Apprentice, in which...

    Lust Horizon

    The best-kept secret about sex has little to do with body parts. Hetero or homo, it's the mortal nature of erotic love that's strictly taboo. "Death," Blanche DuBois says, is "the opposite of desire," a line that remains the single best explanation f...

    Tea Party

    We don't need another story by a woman who did drugs and all kinds of sex and wrote it down just to give a blow-by-blow. We do need The Passionate Mistakes and Intimate Corruption of One Girl in America, a wise, lyrical, autobiographical first novel ...

    Noh Business

    Everybody," according to the old joke, "has 20/20 hindsight." A.R. Gurney does, anyway. Set on a U.S. Navy base near Tokyo in 1955, Far East is Gurney's version of America's transactions with Asia since World War II Madame Butterfly meets Mailer's W...

    Sex Shirkers

    The premise of Lyz! (Samuel Beckett Theater), a new musical adaptation of Aristophanes's Lysistrata, is not devoid of comic potential. In Giuliani's increasingly puritan New York, a group of women decide to withhold sex in protest against masculine...

    The Coffin Corner

    More intentionally shocking than intentionally amusing," warns director Scott Shattuck about Joe Orton's Loot (Cocteau Rep). Well, maybe that was true at the play's 1965 debut, but at a recent Saturday matinee not far from the millennium, a blue-hair...

    Read All About It! - Dancers on the Page
