First Nighter: "Paint Your Wagon" Revival Paints Town Red-Hot
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
Although reviews are expected to be as objective as possible in a somewhat paradoxically subjective way, don't wait for the following assessment of Paint Your Wagon, playing this weekend in the New York City Center Encores! series, to stick to that demand. The reason for the, uh, lapse? The Alan Jay Lerner-Frederick Loewe musical was the second production I saw on Broadway. The first, caught the night before, was South Pacific. Some weekend, no? With those two as an introduction to The Great White Way--an emphasis on the "Great"--I thought that's what my New York City theatergoing was going to be from then on. Is it any wonder that I've often joked it's been downhill ever since? Not exactly, of course, but nevertheless I have a soft spot in my heart for Paint Your Wagon, because of its thrilling score. That's what got to me at the time, as well as Agnes de Mille's choreography. (As equally thrilling as South Pacific was, if not more so, there wasn't much dancing in it at a t ...

First Nighter: The Lisa Kron-Jeanine Tesori "Fun Home" May Not Be Non-Stop Fun But It Damn Well Hits Home
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Musicals have dealt with incarceration (Kiss of the Spider Woman), hanging (Parade) and murder (Sweeney Todd, Bonnie and Clyde, Chicago, Sunset Boulevard, Murder Ballad, Murder for Two) but only now does it get around to suicide, where the bold and wrenching Lisa Kron-Jeanine Tesori musical adaptation of Alison Bechdel's autobiographical graphic novel Fun Home is playing--if "playing" is the appropriate word--at the Public. Oh, wait. There's always Les Miserables, but that suicide is welcome. Bechdel's quest in her illustrated work is hardly a simple one and infinitely more disturbing. Introducing her cartoonist 43-year-old self (Beth Malone), she's compelled to look back at her Small Alison (Sydney Lucas) and college-age Medium Alison (Alexandra Socha) as, at all three ages, she tries to understand--and is never quite able to--her deeply troubled father, Bruce (Michael Cerveris). In order to get a handle on aspects of her own lesbian identity, she's unrelievedly attemptin ...

Theater: Not a 'Fun Home'; 'Two Boys' Trapped In DarkNet
Huffington Post - over 3 years
FUN HOME ** out of **** TWO BOYS ** out of **** FUN HOME ** out of **** PUBLIC THEATER It's rather a shock to realize how poorly represented the stories of lesbians are in theater. That makes Fun Home -- the new musical based on the acclaimed memoir by Alison Bechdel -- all the more welcome and refreshing. The story is even more specific and unusual: Bechdel's autobiographical tale is about a gay daughter coming out in a world of increasing acceptance while her gay dad remains closeted and afraid. Culturally, here in the U.S., it's a strange sliver of time perhaps where a closeted father will watch his lesbian daughter announce herself to the world. In a wonderful sense, we may not see this like again. (Of course, we will, but it may become far less likely than it was in the past few decades. It wasn't possible really before the 1970s and won't perhaps be necessary in such traumatic terms in the future.) Alison is a smart, creative girl growing up in Pennsylvania with her distant ...
