My review of Round House Theatre‘s new production of Martin McDonagh‘s first play, The Beauty Queen of Leenane, is in today’s Washington City Paper.

Shock and Law: Keegan Theatre’s A Few Good Men, reviewed

Few Good Men Keegan

Ubiquitous director Jeremy Skidmore‘s tenacious production of A Few Good Men, the play that gave us Aaaron Sorkin, cuts a dashing figure in its dress whites. Reviewed in this week’s Washington City Paper, available wherever finer alt-weeklies are given away for free.

Coffee’s for Closers

I talked to Jeremy Skidmore about his Keegan Theatre revial of David Mamet’s classic of manly desperation, Glengarry Glen Ross. Haven’t seen the production yet, but Celia Wren seemed to like it.

A couple days after I filed this, the new Fall Out Boy album came to me for review in what it turns out will be my final installment of Media Mix (as that part of the paper is going away come the new year), complete with a tune called “Coffee’s for Closers.” No obvious connection to the play, but perhaps I haven’t listened closely enough to Fall Out Boy. There is always that risk.

(Yes, I am well aware that All My Sons is by Arthur Miller and not David Mamet.)
