New for March


Much new work is blowing in with the March winds -- here are a few which interest me:

First, I can guarantee "Ink," with the inimitable Bertie Carvel, coming to Manhattan Theatre Club. I saw it in London, in a production the Guardian called "riveting" and "unmissable." Get tickets now, although performances don't begin until next month.

If you missed Noche Flamenca's unforgettable "Antigona," you have a chance to witness this extraordinary mix of flamenco and drama in "Entre tu y Yo." at The Connelly Theatre.

The Mad Ones are quite appropriately named, I think, since I saw "Miles for Mary.".They're back with the Ars Nova's production of "Mrs. Murray's Menagerie," this time involving a focus group set in the 1970s.

Michael McKeever ("Daniel's Husband") returns to NY with "After," a play about the dire consequences of bullying for five friends. Please read this excellent review of its Miami production. It will be at 59e59.

I'm going to see "Perp," by Lyle Kessler, presented by The Barrow Group. If his name rings a bell, it's because he wrote the wonderful, if harrowing, "Orphans," last seen on Broadway in 2013.

An Australian import, "Holy Day," comes to the New Ohio Theatre with huge praise. I'm looking forward to this play by Andrew Bovell, a much renowned and respected playwright and screenwriter.

Do try to see "The White Devil," next up from Red Bull Theatre, by John Webster. He's also known for another Jacobean tragedy, "The Duchess of Malfi." What a treat to see a Shakespearean era play brought to vivid, bloody life by this ambitious, stylish company.

Enjoy the first hints of Spring and a play, or two-- or more!

Sincerely,


Carol
