OFF-BROADWAY REVIEW: Broadway Bounty Hunter

Broadway Bounty Hunter_178x236

August 23, 2016: Try to top this for typecasting: The daffy, adorable Annie Golden plays, yes, the daffy, adorable Annie Golden in “Broadway Bounty Hunter,” a sweet if slight goof of a musical, making its premiere at Barrington Stage Company here. The show, featuring songs by Joe Iconis and a book by Mr. Iconis, Lance Rubin and Jason SweetTooth Williams, turns on a willfully silly conceit. An out-of-work actor — that’s Annie as Annie — pursues a second career as a vigilante chasing down dangerous criminals. Powered by a silky retro-R&B score, the musical delights with its loopy idea for longer than you might expect, but as the plot sprouts more absurdities, it ultimately begins to feel like an overextended “Saturday Night Live” sketch (albeit a good one).

OFF-BROADWAY REVIEW: And No More Shall We Part

Nomore

August 18, 2016: A woman’s right to choose — how to live her life, or how to end it — provides an oblique theme linking the two plays that close the Williamstown Theater Festival season, which ends on Sunday. On the main stage is a revival of Wendy Wasserstein’s “An American Daughter,” about a nominee for surgeon general caught up in a political firestorm. And on the smaller Nikos Stage, the company is presenting the American premiere of “And No More Shall We Part,” a dark drama about illness and mortality by the Australian writer Tom Holloway.

OFF-BROADWAY REVIEW: Groundhog Day

GH_178x236

August 16, 2016: Who knew that déjà vu could smell this fresh all over again? On paper, the happy new musical “Groundhog Day,” which opened on Tuesday night at the Old Vic Theater here, seemed like one of those shows that elicit instant groans of “been there, done that” among jaded theatergoers.

OFF-BROADWAY REVIEW: Engagements

feat

August 4, 2016: If there’s anyone you definitely do not want at a party celebrating your coming wedding, it’s the mean-girl central character in “Engagements,” a bitingly funny but overly sour comedy by Lucy Teitler that opened on Thursday at the McGinn/Cazale Theater as part of Second Stage Theater’s Uptown summer series.
