    House of Spirits

    If it's true that the supreme test of any classic play lies in its adaptability to a modern director's radical vision, then it's also true that the playwright's unique insight into the human condition is what made the play a classic in the first plac...

    Dancing About Architecture

    Everything an artist produces is, to varying degrees, a manifestation of his or her own experience. In the case of playwright Henrik Ibsen, scholars have long speculated that The Master Builder was the great Norwegian's attempt to channel a few of hi...

    Nostalgia Trip

    When Joseph Kesselring's Arsenic and Old Lace opened in January 1941, stiff competition from radio and film was fueling talk of the theater's imminent demise. That idea permeates Kesselring's only Broadway success. Fifty-eight years and several enter...

    A Healthy Ribaldry
