    Al Pacino, Marissa Tomei, and Dianne Wiest star in Salome: The Reading with original music by Yukio Tsuji. Oscar Wilde’s powerful tale of lust and revenge folows the legend of King Herod and his passionate desire for the young Princess Salome, who longs for the love of the imprisoned John the Baptist. When he rejects her, Salome turns to her powers of seduction to manipulate the King and seek her revenge. Estelle Parsons directs.

    Veils or No Veils, Whatever She Wants She Gets

    Ben Brantley

    May 1, 2003: There's not one veil in sight, let alone seven. But for once, Salome's mythic dance is effective in exactly the right way: sexy as all get-out and thoroughly demoralizing. It is hard not to identify with that old lecher who's been watching her, frozen, through a haze of red light, looking like the ultimate tired businessman. ''Wonderful,'' he says proprietarily, with a Yiddish lilt, at the dance's conclusion. But you can tell this voyeuristic episode has taken a lot out of him.
