Death and the Maiden

Repo! The Genetic Opera
"Repo: The Genetic Opera" is one of the worst musicals ever to hit theaters. Directed by "Saw II" helmer Darren Lynn Bousman, the film is a hybrid of "Saw" and "The Sound of Music", with visually ugly …

Doctor Faustus
Marlowe answered Lennon's dreadful and dreary supposition nearly 400 years in advance, and the disputation was over long before it started. As surely as there is a heaven, which Faustus could see …

reviewed Waiting for Godot. August 05, 2010
Waiting for Godot
The play was hard to get through; there was no direction of the plot.  I once again found this piece of literature to be absurd.  Beckett played with a few interesting ideas, but he didn’t …

The Investigation
I've wanted to direct Peter Weiss's The Investigation since I first read it in translation in the mid-sixties. Weiss is better known for his brilliant Marat/Sade, a reinterpretation of the assassination …

reviewed Faustus. July 10, 2010
I read Faustus with high anticipation, but it disappointed -or rather, perplexed--me. My judgment is highly subjective -don't trust it alone--but in the first act, where, naturally, the playwright must …

Waiting for Godot
ah, modern drama, how I love thee. Especially Beckett. This play is so sad, and beautiful. First time around, I was too young and silly to take in its greatness. I just thought it was funny. But the second …
