    Wherez the Noize?

    Michael Frayn's extraordinarily popular farce Noises Offis a lot of things, as advertisements pumping any production like to point out. It's "uproarious," "sidesplitting," "hilarious." You can add a new word to the publicity campaign, based on the...

    Volcano BLOWS

    Everything's Memorex - James Drakes conversations speak silently

    Not Surreal Dali

    As surreal theater goes, the first 15 minutes of Jos Rivera's new play, References to Salvador Dali Make Me Hot, aren't that surreal. You've got a human-size coyote salivating over the thought of mounting a human-size house cat, a mustachioed moon ...
