THEATER REVIEW | 'A DISAPPEARING NUMBER'; Human (and Mathematical) Equations
NYTimes - over 6 years
Zeroes, ones, twos and threes glide and slide, shimmy and leap before your eyes in the quietly mesmerizing play ''A Disappearing Number,'' a production from the British company Complicite that plays through Sunday as part of the Lincoln Center Festival. The familiar little digits we use for all sorts of mundane purposes, like marking time and

THEATER REVIEW; Afghanistan Still Stirs A Housewife
NYTimes - almost 13 years
Anyone who met the Homebody in the late fall of 2001 has surely been missing her since. It was in December 2001 to be exact -- only weeks after the events of 9/11 forever transformed New York's sense of itself -- that she was introduced to Manhattan audiences as the title character of Tony Kushner's ''Homebody/Kabul.'' For many of us this

THEATER REVIEW; One Woman's Quest, Fraught With Cultural Land Mines
NYTimes - about 15 years
The woman nattering on about Afghanistan has none of the shiny urgency of a Tim Russert or a Cokie Roberts. She endlessly circles her subject and never seems to land on it.

NYTimes - almost 17 years
GIVEN her theatrical pedigree, Hayley Mills must be aware of more than a few show business maxims. For example: try to avoid following a tough act, and, there is no tougher act than a cute kid. But what happens when you're your own toughest act to follow? In one way, Ms. Mills has already found out, having worked on the London stage for the last 30

17th-Century Foxes Voguing, Dancing and Killing
NYTimes - almost 20 years
The opening moments of Robert Woodruff's acid-trip adaptation of ''The Changeling'' are enough to flip a Jacobean playwright's wig. Before the first drop of blood in the tragedy is spilled, the entire cast, decked out as if it had emerged from a Versace fashion layout, assembles onstage at the Theater at St. Clement's Church for a sexy, unscripted

THEATER REVIEW;Shakespearean Vienna With Modern Tensions
NYTimes - about 21 years
It's too bad, really, that Sigmund Freud won't be showing up in Vienna for another few centuries. Because there's one eminent 17th-century citizen of that city, as portrayed in the unmoored production of "Measure for Measure" that opened last night, who could definitely use his attention. It's not one of the usual sexually repressed suspects from
