Theater: The 'Big Fish' That Got Away; Poor Time Killer
Huffington Post - over 3 years
BIG FISH ** out of **** A TIME TO KILL* 1/2 out of **** BIG FISH ** out of **** NEIL SIMON THEATRE One holiday season years ago, my siblings were all back home. I would be there in a few days but they called me and put me on speakerphone with everyone listening. "We're having an argument," said my brother Chris, "and we need you to settle it. Just say the first thing that comes to mind. What did dad do during the war?" I answered immediately, "He was a nurse during the war, right down to the big hat with wings that jutted out on the side, like the nuns wore." Everyone burst out laughing while I heard my dad good-naturedly exclaiming, "I never said that!" But of course he had, along with a million other stories, some true, many with a grain of truth and more than a few completely untrue but fun and why let facts get in the way of a good story? My father dined and drank with everyone from the Pointer Sisters (probably true, since he barely knew who they were) to Jackie Gleason. He ...

Aisle View: <i>Time to Kill</i> on Stage
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The final 20 minutes of the courtroom drama A Time to Kill provide crackling theatrics, as idealistic folksy small-town lawyer Sebastian Arcelus goes up against slimily wily district attorney (and governor-nominee) Patrick Page. Unfortunately, those 20 minutes of high drama come after two full hours of lumbering storytelling. Since this is Mississippi, the D.A. is bigoted and the Klan is a-marchin' in; since this is a formulaic tale, from the 1989 novel by John Grisham, the good guy wins and the good ol' boys lose. Lumbering, I suppose, is the accurate word. The action is divided into eighteen scenes, taking place in and around the courthouse in fictional Clanton, MS. There's nothing wrong with dividing your play into eighteen scenes, of course, but there is a problem if you build your production on a clunky turntable. They talk, they stop, you watch in the dimmed light as the furniture on the turntable turns, and then they start again. And again and again. Watching A Time to Ki ...

Are You Broadway's Next Peter Parker?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
NEW YORK — The hit Broadway musical "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" is losing its longtime superhero but producers are holding open casting calls for anyone who wants to don the red and blue suit. Reeve Carney, who has been playing the musical's title character and his alter ego Peter Parker since the show began previews in late 2010, will leave Sept. 15 and two casting calls will be held next month to find his replacement, as well as a future actress to play Mary Jane. The casting calls will be in New York on Aug. 19 at Stage 48 &amp; Sky-Lounge and in Los Angeles on Aug.12 at the Hollywood United Methodist Church. Those auditioning are asked to sing a rock song a capella that shows of their range. "Hopefuls should be males in their late teens to early 20s of any ethnicity. They must have a great rock singing voice. They can be nerdy with an understated sex appeal and a good sense of humor," producers said in a statement Tuesday. Carney was the lead singer ...

Michael Giltz: Theater: Virginia Woolf Bests Cyrano by More Than a Nose
Huffington Post - over 4 years
WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF? *** out of **** CYRANO DE BERGERAC ** out of **** WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF? *** out of **** BOOTH THEATRE Edward Albee's drama Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? is one of my favorite plays, but I've never seen it performed until now. I know the classic film version starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton and from what I've heard, every other actress who has played Martha knows it well, too. Taylor's definitive and marvelous scenery chewing made that part a veritable fireworks of stagecraft, full of braying and brawling and enough emoting to make Zero Mostel pause in astonishment. We all know the story well: a middle-aged couple trapped in a small university invites a new professor and his wife over to their house for a late night drink and some serious gamesmanship. George is a failed novelist and failed husband. Martha is the daughter of the head of the university and a failed wife. Their barbs and recriminations barely paus ...

Fern Siegel: Stage Door: Cyrano de Bergerac
Huffington Post - over 4 years
"I shun the normal and the commonplace," proclaims Cyrano de Bergerac, writer and duelist. "My style comes from within!" The 17th-century swashbuckler was a real Frenchman whose life was the basis of Edmond Rostand's 1897 play Cyrano de Bergerac, now on Broadway at the American Airlines Theater. Douglas Hodge, Tony winner for La Cage aux Folles, stars as Cyrano -- and it's an inspired, riveting performance. Hodge imbues Cyrano, famed for his impressive wit, freethinking and large, ugly nose, with energy and vulnerability. His pugilistic impulses, which rally his loyal friends, are muted by his love for Roxanne (Clémence Poésy). Yet she is besotted by the handsome, but tongue-tied Christian (Kyle Soller), a cadet in the legion of the dastardly Comte de Guiche (Patrick Page, last seen in Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark). Because he cannot woo her openly, fearful his nose will revolt her, Cyrano courts her by proxy. He pours his love into eloquent letters he ghostwrites ...
