    Generations Collide, Gently, in a Grandmother’s Village Apartment

    Charles Isherwood

    April 3, 2012: Plays as truthful and touching and fine as Amy Herzog’s “4000 Miles” come along once or maybe twice a season, if we’re lucky. So let us be grateful that Lincoln Center Theater, which first presented this gently comic drama at the tail end of last season under the auspices of its LCT3 program, has moved the same production uptown to the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater, where it opened on Monday with all its virtues intact.

    Jukebox Jackie

    Dan Bacalzo

    May 31, 2012: Glittering sequins, pink curtains, and handfuls of glitter are in abundance at Jukebox Jackie: Snatches of Jackie Curtis, currently on view at La MaMa's Ellen Stewart Theatre. The setting, designed by Scott Pask, is appropriate for this often enchanting revue that pays tribute to the multi-talented Jackie Curtis, who was part of Andy Warhol's famed factory. Conceived and directed by Scott Wittman, the performance is collaged by Wittman and Tony Zanetta from Curtis' plays, poetry, trip books, journals, and movies and also includes songs sung by, written by, or inspired by Curtis.

    ‘Food and Fadwa’

    Joe Dziemianowicz

    June 7, 2012: Picture a foodie, as talkative and as obsessed with EVOO as Rachael Ray, only Palestinian and living in Bethlehem, and you’ve got a bead on the title character of Lameece Issaq and Jacob Kader’s compelling new play “Food and Fadwa.” Spiced with comedy and leavened with drama, it’s a contemporary group portrait of life under occupation. But the co-authors set politics and the ever-present barrier wall simmering on the back-burner. Theirs is a family story, with most focus fixed on an unmarried woman in her 30s who copes with life’s ups and downs through cooking. So much so that Fadwa (Issaq) imagines herself the host of a Food Network-style show as she prepares the wedding feast of her younger sister Dalal (Maha Chehlaoui) and the enterprising Emir (Arian Moayed).

    Rapture, Blister, Burn

    Erik Haagensen

    June 12, 2012: Playwrights Horizons has another winner with "Rapture, Blister, Burn," Gina Gionfriddo's caustic examination of the state of feminism today. The author of the terrific "Becky Shaw" thankfully hasn't written a treatise, filling her play with five complex characters struggling to find a way to "create a life that makes you happy." Packed with humanity, wit, and plenty of compelling argument, the show is a hugely entertaining cross between Bernard Shaw and Wendy Wasserstein.

    Murder In the First

    Karl Levett

    June 6, 2012: Dan Gordon is a writer in the business of adapting screenplays for the stage. In England, he created theatrical adaptations of the films “Rain Man” and “Terms of Endearment.” Now he has turned to material closer at hand: his own screenplay for “Murder in the First,” a 1995 film whose cast includes Kevin Bacon, Christian Slater, and Gary Oldman (and one that this reviewer has never seen).

    A killer courtroom drama

    Frank Scheck

    June 15, 2012: From its startling opening image of a naked prisoner to its climactic reading of a jury’s verdict, “Murder in the First” is the sort of juicy courtroom drama we rarely get these days. Dan Gordon’s gripping, fact-based play — about the 1940s murder trial that exposed abuses at Alcatraz — was adapted from his screenplay for the 1995 film starring Christian Slater and Kevin Bacon. But this theatrical rendition is far more than six degrees better than the sensationalized movie.
