    Assassins seethes through the mind like an unsettling wind, hurling aside platitude and raising a host of tormenting questions. This brilliant musical by John Weidman and Stephen Sondheim is exactly the kind of project local companies should be takin...

    Blank Screen - The Dead Guy flickers in a feeble attempt to spoof TV.

    In the ladies' room during the intermission of The Dead Guy, I heard one woman say to another, "Every play they do here has some kind of message." "What do you see as the message of this one?" asked her friend. A pause. "Oh, you know, how shall...

    Impolitic Levity - The Avenue Theater uses The Fourth Wall as laffy taffy.

    Deeper Digging Needed - Gary Austin's one-man Oil is no character gusher.
