Theater review: 'Smart People' at Geva

There are a few topics people don’t bring up in casual conversation, as a rule — politics, sexual orientation, money, and race, to name a few. For heaven’s sake, just stick to asking about the weather, weekend plans, and the welfare of children or pets.

Theater review: Geva's 'In the Heights'

At the age of 37, composer and lyricist Lin-Manuel Miranda is already a recipient of a Pulitzer Prize, three Tony Awards, two Grammys, an Emmy, and a MacArthur Fellowship. He has also been nominated for an Academy Award and was named in Time’s 2016 “Most Influential People in the World” list.

Theater review: 'Twelfth Night' at Blackfriars Theatre

When a theater company opens the season with an experimental take on a Shakespearean work, it's a calculated gamble. In a digitally saturated world that provides a three-minute video version, SparkNotes study guide, and Wikipedia synopsis for every play in The Bard's canon, there's no guarantee audiences will care enough to see a three-hour run -- much less stay engaged throughout.
