picture - the Miracle Workernow playing on Broadway

Little Miss Sunshine's Abigail Breslin
joins Alison Pill and Matthew Modine
in this Broadway revival of William
Gibson's famous play about Helen
Keller and Annie Sullivan

The Miracle Worker

reviewed for Stage and Cinema
by Cindy Pierre

picture - The Temperamentalsnow playing Off Broadway

Before the Stonewall riots officially
gave birth to the gay liberation
movement, Harry Hay and others
had already begun the fight.
This is the basis for the exquisite
Off Broadway production of

The Temperamentals

reviewed for Stage and Cinema
by William Gooch

picture - A funny thing happened on the way to the forumnow playing in Los Angeles

It's now official:  the Los Angeles
Reprise series -- quickly produced
and often scaled-down productions
of past musicals -- is better than
New York's Encore series, on which
Reprise is modeled.  The latest
example is the thoroughly enjoyable

A Funny Thing Happened
On The Way To The Forum

reviewed for Stage and Cinema
by Harvey Perr

picture - Haram Irannow playing in Los Angeles

It is officially recognized that
homosexuality does not exist
in the Muslim world.  What
happens during those inconvenient
instances when reality intervenes
is looked at in the West Coast
premiere of this play based
on a true tragic story

Haram Iran

reviewed for Stage and Cinema
by Harvey Perr

picture - Glee Clubnow playing Off Broadway

The misanthropic characters in
this comedy are too unlikeable
to care about what happens

Glee Club

reviewed for Stage and Cinema
by Andrew Turner

picture - Police, Adjectivenow playing in select theaters

No matter what you think of
this film, enjoying it is not
part of the equation

Police, Adjective

reviewed for Stage and Cinema
by Kevin Bowen

picture - The Bounty Hunternow playing nationwide

Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler
star in this star vehicle that will
probably not do much more for their
stardom than tarnish it

The Bounty Hunter
