OFF-BROADWAY REVIEW: Time of Women

January 13, 2017: The murk and dankness of a jail cell enfold the characters of Time of Women like a fog that refuses to lift even when the sun is out. In this intensely acted, claustrophobic play from the remarkable underground company the Belarus Free Theater, which runs through Sunday as part of the Under the Radar festival, life is saturated with the stench of incarceration, and no one is pretending that the smell will go away.

OFF-BROADWAY REVIEW: Lucky Penny

January 10, 2017: Lucky Penny is an autobiographical show, written by and starring the actor David Deblinger, but while Mr. Deblinger unfolds the story of his life, he disappears so often into the other colorful characters in the tale that he himself almost seems to be a supporting player.

OFF-BROADWAY REVIEW: Blueprint Specials

January 9, 2017: For the first time, you don’t have to be a member of the armed forces to see Blueprint Specials, a jaunty foray into a little-known footnote in American military history. A series of musicals intended to boost morale and entertain the troops during World War II, these forgotten shows (only four survive) have now been resurrected by the theater company Waterwell. The production — which combines elements of all of the extant shows — is being presented in association with (and on the hangar deck of) the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, as part of the Under the Radar festival.

OFF-BROADWAY REVIEW: Lula del Ray

January 6, 2017: So if you add up the two-dimensional and the three-dimensional to create a new spatial entity, does that mean you’re in the fifth dimension? Whatever you choose to call it, such a perspective-melting world is the realm in which the enchanting Lula del Ray takes place. This latest offering from the Chicago-based arts collective Manual Cinema, which runs through next Saturday in the Public Theater’s Under the Radar festival, is dreamy in all senses of the word. It tells its story — in many ways, a familiar one of a restless girl’s small rebellion against her lonely provincial life — in the twilight zone between shadow and substance.

OFF-BROADWAY REVIEW: The Bitter Game

January 8, 2017: They are instructions to commit to memory, essential tools in a young man’s defense system: Keep your head up. Keep your eyes forward. Keep your ego down. The audience for The Bitter Game — Keith A. Wallace’s high-impact performance piece at the Public Theater’s Under the Radar Festival — is asked to repeat these directions again and again. They are, after all, words that might make the difference between living and dying.
