Of this play reviewer Ben Brantley of the Gray Lady wrote “The breezy comic spirit doesn’t trivialize the play’s underlying gravity.” That is, there’s a lot of humor even after the girl-on-girl kiss turns serious. For mature audiences. Notable: a good show for those who love the Big Apple.
Hot ‘n’ Throbbing
Another “for mature audiences only” show, this Late Night event promises both violence and erotica. Directed by the multi-talented Troy M. Apostol. Notable: savage…and savagely funny.
A Jivebomber’s Christmas
The indomitable spirit of party-on-down awakens in a WWII Japanese internment camp, just in time for Christmas 1943. Notable: a Kumu Kahua world premiere, filled with jump and jive.
The House of Blue Leaves
Got a dyspeptic bent? If so, black comedies are the best antacid. Take a spoonful of “Blue Leaves,” the 1966 John Guare play that skewers religion, ambition and schizophrenia within the ironically named Queens suburb of Sunnyside. Notable: possibly the most intelligent play in this season’s line-up.
