picture - Finian's Rainbownow playing on Broadway

The 2009 revival of the musical that includes
"Old Devil Moon," a leprechaun turning mortal,
a mute who communicates through dance,
a white racial bigot transformed into a black man,
and plenty of great songs and Irish whiskey

Finian's Rainbow

reviewed for Stage and Cinema
by Harvey Perr

picture - Brighton Beach Memoirs recently closed on Broadway

The theater world and its followers
were shocked when David Cromer's
brilliantly-directed revival of a Neil Simon
play closed after one week (and its
companion, Broadway Bound, never
even got to the first preview)

the life of Sandra Laing, concerns
a woman born to white parents who
carried a dormant black gene, bringing
into question which race she was

Skin

picture - Made in Heavennow playing Off Broadway

A wacky comedy that, if you listen carefully,
carries some depth, about twins conjoined

run into unexpected relationship problems
