Review: 'The Wiz'

By

To call the La Jolla Playhouse production of "The Wiz" a mere revival is to understate the accomplishment of helmer Des McAnuff and his production team. They have rethought, rescaled and reshaped an…

Review: 'Pig Farm'

By

Playwright Greg Kotis has a keen ear for genre cliches. His "Urinetown" libretto hoists the socially conscious musical on its own pretentious petard, while his new farce is built on the laconic…

Review: 'Bach at Leipzig'

By

The nominal premise of "Bach at Leipzig" is that of a competition among Germany's greatest organists, circa 1722, for the coveted post of that city's chief musical director. But if that suggests a…

By

John Patrick Shanley's "Doubt" continues to cast a devastating spell as it makes its first stop on a multicity tour at the Ahmanson. Directed by original helmer Doug Hughes with three Broadway…
