December 16, 2019: A boy presses “play,” and the world goes away. That basic, everyday magic act — variations of which have been practiced by restless adolescents since the dawn of recorded sound — takes on fresh, senses-stirring life in the opening moments of “Sing Street,” which opened on Monday night at New York Theater Workshop.

OFF-BROADWAY REVIEW: Blue Man Group

July 28, 2005: Blue Man Group has been around so long and played so many cities that it's easy to forget that its roots are in the New York performance art scene of the 1980's.
