THE BARE TRUTH

American Theatre of Actors Sargent Theater
“A script so hilarious, you can’t help but laugh at ‘the rule of the towel,’ ‘practicing at home’ and interlude music so apropos that it’s practically part of the story.”

Between the Threads

HERE Dorothy B. Williams Theatre
You don’t have to be Jewish or identify as a woman to enjoy it, but it will certainly help if you’re both.

Although only a reading of a work-in-progress, the show had us singing along during the performance and well into the evening.

A little taste of Lower East Side theatre on the Upper West Side

On a stage as sparse as a lawn in a park, the cast of nearly two dozen actors delivered all of the energy and immersion of an alfresco performance, indoors.

Sketchy Spring

TADA! Youth Theater Third Floor

A THERAPY SESSION WITH MYSELF

Like Dickens’ A Christmas Carol if Scrooge suffered from Asperger’s Syndrome, social anxiety and depression.

Tlll We Meet Again

14th Street Y Theater at the 14th Street Y
“just enough cryptic surrealism, quirky choreography and creative wordplay to give this play a certain special umph”

Wickedest Woman

McGinn/Cazale Theater WP Theater
A handsome set by Anna Driftmier that looks like it might have been designed by the great recycler, Louise Nevelson, is the real star of this show.
