Theatre Reviews

  1. Albany politics in 1977 may not seem very scintillating. But Ms. Falco brings out the buried drama of an ambitious woman in a man’s political world.
  2. Bobby Cannavale is a showy journalist, Daniel Radcliffe a stickler for the truth. In “The Lifespan of a Fact,” their face-off takes on epic proportions.
  3. In plays like “Intractable Woman,” about a murdered investigative journalist, Stefano Massini seeks to create a “biopsy of reality.”
  4. Lucas Hnath’s Ibsen sequel will be seen at 27 theaters, and work by women is dramatically represented on American Theater magazine’s annual tally.
  5. Hanya Yanagihara’s best-selling novel includes many disturbing scenes. In a new production in Amsterdam, the director Ivo van Hove puts that cruelty center stage.
