    Brilliant imagery saves a script that falls short in Hot + Wax

    There's far more playing area than there is room for the audience: We're seated on a few rows of chairs at each end of the space, while the wide floor between is marked out like a Pacman game. On the opposite wall from where I sit, a screen shows a ...

    This version of The 39 Steps is an uninhibited romp

    The 39 Steps is uninhibitedly silly -- a romp, a trifle, a takeoff on a 1930s Hitchcock film (which, in turn, was based on a novel by John Buchan) The plot, which didn't make much sense in the previous versions, has something to do with an attempt b...

    Despite its cuteness, Dead Man's Cell Phone fascinates throughout

    I wasn't interested in the discussion about the uses and abuses of cell phones in Sarah Ruhl's Dead Man's Cell Phone. To begin with, the theme is dated. Most people don't use their phones to talk these days; they're too busy checking e-mail, playing...

    Cavalia is a sensory experience and a galloping triumph

    I'd been enjoying Cavalia all along, but the moment that won me over completely came during the second act, in a piece called "Carousel." To an exotic beat that sounded rather like Ravel's "Bolero," a group of robed people rode white horses through ...
