    Dan Fishback's Madonna & Britney Early Twentieth Century Russian Émigré Musical Comedy Is Unmissable

    There are two huge, delightful surprises in Dan Fishback's new play "The Material World," playing Fridays and Saturdays all July at Dixon Place's HOT! Festival for queer performance. One is that the play, which has an anachronistic set-up at the heart of its absurdist drama treats...

    Now and Then: The Long, Slow Death of the Movie Musical

    It's been 60 years since the musical's prime — when Gene Kelly and Stanley Donen, those sorcerers of sound, joined forces on "Singin' in the Rain" — so you'll forgive me if this week's theatrical screenings in honor of the anniversary feel less like a celebration than an obituary.
