Off-b’way and Beyond: Obies Honor ‘Eclipsed’ and ‘The Humans’

It was Off-Broadway’s night on May 23 as the Obie Awards dished out recognition for some of the season’s top productions.

Playwright Lucas Hnath took home Obies for both “Red Speedo” and “The Christians,” as did Stephen Karam for his work on “The Humans,” another 2016 Tony nominee that transferred to Broadway.

Theater Review: A Bed-and-Breakfast Weekend Gone Awkward, in Annie Baker’s John
What interest could Annie Baker possibly have in kitsch? This was the question bothering me as I headed into her new play, John, which takes place in a Gettysburg bed-and-breakfast so encrusted with tchotchkes — teddy bears, trolls, toy trains, gnomes, angels, samplers, Christmas crap, candles — that you may come to think you are actually trapped inside one. Surely the author of The Flick and The Aliens and Circle Mirror Transformation, all of which valorize society’s strugglers and stragglers, hadn’t gone cute or, worse, parodic? No, it quickly becomes clear that the owner of the B&B, Mertis Katherine Graven, known as Kitty, is not being offered as a caricature of eccentric old-ladyhood, despite her fondness for dolls and quack diets, and despite being played by the marvelously dippy Georgia Engel, a human tchotchke herself. Nor are the other characters, with their fibs and phobias and psychopathology, here to

'Hot in Cleveland' Season 5 live premiere: Valerie Bertinelli thinks Betty White is a 'freak of nature'

TV Land's first big success in original sitcoms is aiming to stay hot by starting a season live.

"Hot in Cleveland" begins its fifth round the same way it came back in the middle of its fourth, with stars Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick, Jane Leeves and Betty White performing the episode as viewers see it (in the Eastern half of the country) Wednesday, March 26. Immediately after, Season 3 of the "Cleveland" spinoff "The Soul Man" will debut the same way, with Cedric the Entertainer and his cast also going live.

Linking the halves of the event, White and Cedric will appear in both series, to be shown on tape on the West Coast but with no modifications. "Hot in Cleveland" normally is done in front of a studio audience, as was the comedy that made Bertinelli famous, "One Day at a Time" ... but she confirms the live-telecast aspect doesn't mean less nerves.
