Alice By Heart:
A bit of a chaotic mess, but a really fertile one, featuring several wonderful songs, an appealing premise, great choreography and some of the very best performances I’ve seen this year.
All My Sons:
Strong, thoughtful play, decent performances. Nothing groundbreaking or especially interesting.
Nope, don’t like that.
The Cher Show:
A completely bonkers, thoroughly enjoyable ride.
Strong, moving work.
Gary: A Sequel To Titus Andronicus:
Wildly, ingeniously original, featuring BRILLIANT performances from Nathan Lane, Kristine Nielsen and Julie White. Genuinely wrenching and hilarious. Tonys all around.
Phoebe is a genius.
Hillary And Clinton:
Slightly traumatic and underwhelming (compared to A Doll’s House Part 2, anyway), but good, and Metcalf is fantastic.
Good acting I guess, but a real snoozefest (except for Jane Houdyshell).
Kiss Me, Kate:
Not as painfully dated as Carousel or My Fair Lady, but nonetheless, surprisingly, annoyingly lackluster in more ways than one.
Merrily We Roll Along:
Norma Jean Baker Of Troy:
Sea Wall / A Life:
Strong acting, but BLEAK.
A pale imitation of the film, but fun, and generally well-done.
What The Constitution Means To Me:
Rousing, introspective and inspiring.
