  • A Life
    Review by Holli Harms 25 October 2016 Playwrights Horizons' Peter Jay Sharp Theater is a warm comfortable womb of a space. In this theater performers need not project to be heard, silence in this...
  • A Life in the Theatre
    Review by Tulis McCall(30 Oct 2010) Watching this show made me wonder if David Mamet likes actors. It doesn’t seem so. In this production these two fine actors work like stevedores trying to pull a...
  • A Lifetime Burning

  • A Midsummer Night's Dream
    Review by Margret Echeverria July 31, 2017 What is happening in this world? I don't know about you, but I am so stressed out that I put my love spell flowers in the fridge and my normalizing herbs in...
  • A Minister's Wife
    Review by Tulis McCall Bland but not quite. This production follows the play Candida, by George Bernard Shaw, pretty much to the letter. The one enormous element that they left out is the inclusion...
