‘Our Mother’s Brief Affair’ Broadway Review: Linda Lavin Looks Back With Angst

  • The Wrap
There’s a riveting moment in the middle of Richard Greenberg’s new play, “Our Mother’s Brief Affair,” which opened Wednesday at Mtc’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. A twin brother and sister face the audience to give us the backstory on the real-life person with whom their mother might have had an affair. The play, after a long 40 minutes, comes to life as we listen to historical details about a relatively unknown but not-so-minor player (played John Procaccino) in the Red Scare of the 1950s. Neither the petulant performances by Kate Arrington and Greg Keller nor the arch writing by Greenberg.

The Good Wife, Ep. 6.06: “Old Spice” struggles to juggle disparate tones, stories

The Good Wife, Season 6, Episode 6: “Old Spice”

Written by Leonard Dick

Directed by James Whitmore, Jr.

Airs Sundays at 9pm on CBS

For all of the huge life changes Alicia Florrick has had to endure over the course of The Good Wife’s five-and-change seasons, one character trait has always remained: her atheism. Alicia has never had the inclination towards belief in a higher power – at least, not one beyond the earthly plane. If anything, the years have made her ever more ruthlessly pragmatic as a matter of necessity. Her work and interpersonal relationships have been so toxic for so long that the notion of a loving, interventionist man upstairs has never been an option for her. Though many fans have long complained of the subplots given to Grace, Alicia’s pious daughter, their relationship proves to be the most fascinating aspect of “Old Spice,” an odd and somewhat

Henrik Ibsen's 'An Enemy of the People' remains scarily timely and timeless

  • Pop2it
A 130-year-old play might seem creaky when considering the men are in top hats, the women are in long dresses, and there is an overall stiffer manner.

But Henrik Ibsen's "An Enemy of the People," at the Manhattan Theatre Club's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre, holds up just fine in director Doug Hughes' capable hands. 

If only it weren't so timely.

The play asks important questions about free speech, environmental disasters and the rich expecting the poor to suffer an undue tax burden. Considering recent events such as the Bp disaster, Wall Street greed and the one percent, then none of it seems all that old.

In fact it's pretty timeless.

And scary. Unless those involved are armed, little is scarier than a mob. When people lose critical thinking abilities and just start chanting, when they repeat without thinking and close in on someone, anything can happen. And it is rarely good.
