    Curiouser. Singer Gallery director Simon Zalkind is one of the top curators in town, and one of the secrets to his success is presenting artists whose efforts are worthwhile but who for some reason rarely exhibit their work. That's what's happening ...

    Three castastrophes and sixty years later, The Skin of Our Teeth still has bite

    It isn't strange that in 1942 a major American playwright would be concerned with the possible extinction of humanity and pondering what it would take to save the human race, but it is odd that Thornton Wilder chose to do all of this in a comedy. Lu...

    The ingredients in Sunsets and Margaritas are a little too strong
