“My Heart Is In The East” Brings the Power of Language to the Forefront

Language in all its glory is the main source of the history we know. The evolution of language through the ages, and what it managed to accomplish when used right, is fascinating. Through centuries, languages have been created, bent, used and abused to entertain and progress our societies. Language is both our most important tool and our way to a […]

“A Hunger Artist” is a Powerful One-Man Epic

Art in all its subjectiveness has helped shape culture since the beginning of civilization. From drawings on a cave wall to stories being projected on a huge screen, art has had its hand in popularizing trends throughout history. The art itself has a popular cycle, in which it becomes as much about the spectacle and the adulation as it is about […]

“How To Be Safe” is a Well-Crafted Study About Mental Health

Mental health is something people are becoming more and more open about. Mental health was not something people were open about at all when it came to themselves. It is a tricky subject to tackle as a writer thanks to its multifaceted existence and the conditions it brings when it becomes unstable. How do you portray something so complex as […]

“The Nina Variations” Finds a Way to Break Your Heart 43 Times

In theater there are certain moments that scholars have studied for years, we have wondered at the incredible impact of it, and students based their foundation on its words. Moments like Jerry telling the story of the dog in “Zoo Story” or the violent despair of the poker scene in “A Streetcar Named Desire,” have affected and inspired artists through the […]

“Chokehold” Tries to be Important, but Falters

In 2009, Oscar Grant was shot by the police after a small dispute with another person. He didn’t deserve to be shot and murdered, but he was. He wasn’t the first or the last, and with internet and the world wide web taking over, we have seen many new examples of this since then. A movement was started, people rallied, […]

“Missed Connections: A Craigslist Musical” is an Ode to Our Bizarre Nature

People are strange. We are, we all are. Let’s admit this. We are full of oddities that make us unique; in fact, it is the oddities that make each of us a person. Most people are comparable to another person, very few are considered special in the grand scheme of things. That’s because people are ashamed of sharing those little […]

A Crazy Foursome Gives Us an Entertaining Evening in “Mechanics of Love”

Relationships are like bookmarks for the book called our life — sometimes they are memorable, but most of the time they are not. You forget them or, more importantly, forget the feelings they generated for you at the moment. A passion fling that at the moment seemed like everything in the world could easily become a joke between friends a […]

“Maestro” is a Virtuoso Portrayal of an American Icon

God and love. These things means the same for so many people, yet we try to find it in different ways. The idea of love by itself is vast. It can mean anything! From the sweet taste of strawberries in the summer to the person you spend your life with, we love. And we find God through these things, because […]

Migguel Anggelo: A Powerful Voice From Latin America

Migguel Anggelo came like a force into my life. I was sitting at a small table, in the middle of Joe’s Pub, waiting for him to come on stage and perform. I was talking to my guest about the space, and the show. I had not much idea what the show was going to be about, my knowledge started and ended […]

“Ideation” Makes a Strong Impression in NYC

In this world, this small big world, things happen constantly we know nothing about. Or we know about it but we don’t really. Or maybe everyone is on the joke, but you. Those questions amplify every time something big happens. Every time a tragedy strikes, the seeping confusion births a bit of paranoia. Every time we conceptualized saving humanity as […]
