Review: The Marriage of Bette and Boo
Dysfunction, like so much else in life, is relative. Take Christopher Durang’s piercing comic tearjerker, The Marriage of Bette and Boo, which Roundabout is now presenting in its Off-Broadway Laura Pels Theatre. When the play premiered 23 years ago, its torrential centerpieces of divorce, alcoholism, and stillbirths (four in all) were ideal for vivisection by jokes that made relieving light of things that at first seemed impossibly dark. How better to survive the depths of emotional degradation than by facing them on their own surreal terms? . . .

Review: The Strangerer
Think the Iraq war is absurd? You must know you’re not alone. But would you ever have expected the likes of Jim Lehrer, Senator John Kerry, and - of all people! - President George W. Bush to openly share that view? It’s the odd magic of Mickle Maher’s disturbingly compelling The Strangerer, which just opened at the Barrow Street Theatre following a highly successful run in Chicago, that makes that and more unlikely propositions feel as certain as the sun’s rising tomorrow morning. . . .
