Another Triple Broadway Week

Another Triple Broadway Week

My reviews of three shows we saw last week in New York: “Between Riverside and Crazy,” “Topdog/Underdog,” and “Almost Famous.”

Peter Pan Goes Wrong

I have raved about the Mischief Theatre, the funny folks responsible for “The Play That Goes Wrong” and “The Goes Wrong Show.” So I was thrilled to finally see their production of “Peter Pan Goes Wrong.”

Jodie Comer’s Tour De Force

Jodie Comer’s Tour De Force

Jodie Comer — who “Killing Eve” made famous — recently starred in the one-woman stage play, “Prima Facie,” and gave a performance I can’t stop thinking about. Here’s my review.

Gaga For Fanny Brice

Gaga For Fanny Brice
